“You eat cereal the wrong way,” Cristian said, reaching over for the milk carton.
As I looked over to my boyfriend, I noticed that he was pouring the milk into the bowl before pouring in the cereal.
“No no… you’re eating it the wrong way.”
I wouldn’t necessarily say there is a “right” way to eat all foods, but certain foods, like cereal, for example, definitely have a wrong way of eating them. To be honest, I don’t even know what the point of this is, but I’ve decided to compile a short list of foods and discuss the right and wrong way of eating them.
Whether or not you can relate, we can just agree to disagree.
The Wrong Way: Pouring in the milk before the cereal
If you happen to do this… you need to rethink your life priorities. I don’t even know how to explain this, but this order of operations is just unnatural.
The Right Way: Pour in the cereal and THEN the milk (that way you have the perfect amount of milk).
2. Ice Cream Bars.
You know those vanilla ice cream bars with the chocolate coating?
The Wrong Way: Eating off all of the chocolate first and then saving the vanilla portion for last.
In my opinion, by the time you’re done eating off all the chocolate, you’re left with just vanilla, and it just seems so empty.
The Right Way: Eating the chocolate and vanilla at the same time so that you enjoy the full breadth of the flavors.
3. Chocolate Bars.
When it comes to chocolate bars, consider Kit Kat or Hershey's. They’ve got lines in them for a reason!
The Wrong Way: Biting into the entirety of the chocolate bar.
The Right Way: Breaking off the marked pieces of the chocolate bar and eating them all individually.
4. String Cheese.
I thought everyone ate string cheese in the same way, but it has come to my attention that some people don’t eat it in a string-like fashion.
The Wrong Way: Biting into the entire stick of cheese.
What are you?! A neanderthal?!
The Right Way: Peeling off the STRING cheese and basking in the glory of the cheesy flavor.
5. Chicken Wings.
Sometimes, when I watch people eat chicken wings, I get so angry because they leave so much meat left on the bone. Granted, there isn’t really a correct method of going about eating chicken wings, but there IS something that should be accomplished by the time you’re done.
The Wrong Way: Eating the chicken wings and leaving off parts of the skin and meat.
The Right Way: When you eat chicken wings, you should go crazy. Get your hands dirty and eat every single part of the wing. The meat, the skin, the cartilage, etc. I know some people even crack open the bone to suck out the marrow.
6. Pizza + Burgers.
Half the fun in eating pizza or a burger is the messiness of it... at least for me. One of my best friends, Kalani, constantly tells me that she's disgusted when she watches me eat, but at least I'm enjoying myself.
The Wrong Way: Eating pizza or a burger with a fork and knife.
The Right Way: USE YOUR HANDS! GO CRAZY!
Nonetheless, regardless of how you eat, as long as you enjoy your food, that's all that matters.
