Okay, everyone has gained their 19 pounds from COVID-19. So today I’m giving you an easy way to cut down on all the overeating we’ve been doing.
It starts with figs.
Did you know figs have to be pollinated on the inside? This means fig wasps crawl in to lay their eggs, but in the process lose their wings. So the female wasp dies inside the fruit. YIKES, right? I mean, an enzyme in the fig breaks her carcass down into protein, but STILL. I promise this is true; you can look it up.
Insect pieces are in almost everything—canned goods, baked goods, boxed goods, veggies, coffee, tomatoes, spices, fast food. Experts say it’s just the cost of doing business in the food industry. They can’t eliminate ALL the pests, so they decided what percentage is basically safe for us to eat!
But it’s even worse. (Are you shedding pounds, yet?) Some foods’ formulas deliberately add fish bladders, human hair, duck feathers, and a musky/vanilla-scented beaver secretion. Each of these items provides something they want— say, for fluffier bread.
So, not to bug you, but are you gonna eat that last bite of ice cream, or can I have it?
Many of my Youtube Mom videos show you slick tricks for fixing and storing all these foods (be brave), along with must-see life hacks.
