Lunch lies! Dinner deceits! Tasty truths!
« on: July 21, 2010, 02:10:44 PM »
I thought this was cute and a little funny:

http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2010/07/21/lunch-lies-dinner-deceits-tasty-truths/?hpt=Mid

Some quotes from the article:

Quote
- Hot, spicy foods on a sweltering day will cool you down: Fiery foods raise your body temperature slightly, bringing heat to the skin's surface and causing you to sweat. This perspiration will ultimately cause your body to cool down by evaporative cooling (temperature reduction through the evaporation of water).

Quote
- Chocolate doesn't cause acne: 1950s dermatology books made the claim that chocolate causes acne, asserting that because chocolate is rich in fat and sebum (oil), consuming chocolate would cause the sebaceous glands to be affected. No studies have been able to show any association between chocolate and acne. To the contrary, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition recently reported that the flavanoids (antioxidants) in dark chocolate may actually help regulate sebum production, thus helping with acne.

Quote
When I was little, the ice cream man would come by on his tricycle, bells ringing. My mom told me he was the fish man Ė he sold fish out of the cooler on the front of his large tricycle. Worked like a charm until the day my Grandpa bought me an ice cream bar. I don't know that she ever forgave him for that.

Quote
My mother told me one time that eating chicken wings would enable me to fly! She didn't say how many it took, but I gave up flapping my arms while jumping off curbs after about the third meal worth of chicken wings. I still don't like 'em.

Quote
Meat DOES NOT come from animals, it's grown on trees in Malaysia.

I liked this one:

Me: Why does Johnny's family eat steak all the time?
Dad: Well son, other families just can't afford to have their meat ground up the way we do.

That one is cute. I like the ones where they tell their kids that they are eating dinosaur meat. :P

That's Godzilla - the deep-frozen pork or beef cooked for the Greek armed forces, whose slaughter date, in the words of my cousin, 'is lost in the depths of ages past' :P

That was hilarious!

When I was little - like, 12? 13? My mom made 'eggs' by putting peeled peach halves (the yolks) in a skillet and surrounding them with vanilla ice cream (the whites). I sincerely disliked eggs at that age, but I wasn't allowed to leave the table until dinner was over. I ate my three servings, and then my mom insisted that I also finish the eggs that she had just brought out. I was so completely fooled that I burst into tears at having to eat eggs.

My parents still laugh at that.  :P

My Dad use to tell my sister and I that onions were 'white carrots'.  >>;  Even at that age I knew he was full of it.  My AOS in Culinary Arts says different Dad!

My Uncle also told us that spicy food was bad, to which we always asked him why he ate it and proceeded to eat it anyways.

My parents never told me any real lies about what I was eating but they said I should eat everything because there were starving children in China. Then wee little Inky's brain went into overdrive.

China has millions of people.
If we went to war even a malnourished China we'd lose unless we nuked 'em.
However, every grain of food I eat doesn't go to China!
Therefore the President will have to give me a medal! I just prevented World War III.

If guilt was the intent it failed.

Bill Cosby had the best comeback to that:

'Well, put it in a box and we can ship it to them!'
