Fun Fact Friday 3: The Food Edition
I am relieved this week is over. I know I only worked for 3 days but I’ll be happy to get everything back on a normal feeling routine.
And also if you saw my tweet last night, I sadly did not make it in time to my workout class because I ended up stuck at work a little late. I was so sad! I plan to get a little running in this weekend and make sure to make it to class 3 times next week to get back on track and I am definitely feeling my week with no exercise – it makes me a bit sluggish.
My breakfast this morning was grabbed in a hurry and consisted of a banana and a yogurt (definitely not enough for me). I will be making a mid-morning run to Starbucks for a giant coffee after I get a few things taken care of at work.
I have to cut this one a little short, so I will be back for another post later today but for now its time to get smarter with useless knowledge, because it’s Friday.
Ready for some possibly not-so-delicious food facts?
- Refried beans are only fried once (this one is funny for some reason)
- The average American eats 11.7 pounds of chocolate per year. Denmark is the country that consumes the most at about 30 lbs per person, per year.
- 50% of people with latex allergies are also allergic to bananas. Also, the group of bananas that we see at the supermarket (that most refer to as a “bunch”) is actually called a “hand” of bananas.
- Olive oil has a shelf life of 2 years if stored in a cool, dark place but has the most flavor in the first 2 months after being “opened”
- The most popular cheese in the world? Cheddar and its different varieties.
- Chewing mint gum while peeling onions can help keep you from crying (weird, I’ll test this one)
- The US consumes about 18 acres of pizza daily (thats it? …kidding, kinda)
- ….and last and definitely least – the average human eats at least 4 bugs in their sleep throughout their life time.
