A couple weeks ago i was killing myself laughing at a twitter conversation between myself and a few of my followers – the topic? hilarious things that people say about food – some just strange, some just so backwards that you have no clue how someone could think that was correct, and some that everyone has probably heard from their grandparents but you have to giggle at (eating bread crusts will give you curly hair for example). here are just a few of the best ones that i have heard:
“cheese and eggs are not animal proteins” – reasoning behind that theory? “vegetarians eat eggs and cheese so they are vegetable proteins”….anyone know where i can get some gouda seeds?
comment when having pasta for dinner, “why don’t we have bread, i don’t feel well if i don’t have carbs with dinner”
this is one of those grandmother comments, “parsley cleans the blood so your breath won’t smell like garlic”
this one made me laugh only because i am sure most woman know someone who has said something along these lines – from the movie, The Devil Wears Prada…”It’s for Paris, I’m on this new diet. Well, I don’t eat anything and when I feel like I’m about to faint I eat a cube of cheese.” followed by “I’m just one stomach flu away from my goal weight.” and the ever so popular carb comment, “You don’t deserve them, I mean you eat carbs, for Chrissake!”
i went to university (seriously, this girl was a biology major) who said, “i don’t drink milk because the idea of drinking cow pus kinda grosses me out”
my famous (yes i know i am wrong, but it was a good try on my part) comment about coffee, “it’s a complete breakfast, no? i mean, coffee is a bean so it’s a legume, and then add milk, a dairy, and sugar that comes from plants…so a vegetable….complete breakfast? maybe?”
and just because of what my blog is about – every time i hear, “it is impossible to cook well for one”
what are some good ones you have heard?
