This Very Spoiled Dog Begs His Human For Some Extra Food. He Proceeds To Throw An Adorable Tantrum.

Many of our beloved pet animals have voracious appetites. It seems that no matter how often or how much you feed them, they’ll always want more tasty treats! For those types of endlessly hungry pets, you can’t leave a bowl of food out for them to graze on, it will always be empty! If you want to keep them in shape and as healthy as can be, you have to limit their food and feed them on a schedule.

This seems to be most true when it comes to dogs. They often eat everything in sight and thus do best with set meal times. But just because a dog gets fed around the same time everyday it doesn’t mean they still won’t try to get some extra kibble in their tummies! Which leads us to this adorable video where one German Shepherd works his cuteness to his advantage in order to get more food.

The handsome dog’s name is Apollo and like many fellow German Shepherds, he’s very intelligent and perceptive. He starts off his begging by placing his empty metal food bowl in front of his owner in order to gain the man’s attention. Then he paws at it so that the bowl clanks around noisily on the kitchen floor. When that doesn’t work, Apollo heads over to his owner and nuzzles his hand, directing him to the pantry where his yummy food is kept. After pawing and sniffing at the bin for a bit he’s finally asked by his owner “Are you hungry?” A swift, hungry sounding bark is what he gets in reply!

We soon find out that Apollo has already eaten his breakfast just a few hours ago and it’s only just around noontime at this point in the day. Although it’s not time for him to eat again just yet, his adorable persistence proves impossible to resist. In the end, it appears as if his owner has given in to his charms and is about to scoop some food into his bowl.

If You Love Snacking On Baby Carrots You Should Stop Right Now. The Reason Is Nasty.

Baby carrots may be ultra convenient and fun to snack on, but they’re not exactly the healthiest option when it comes to getting the recommended daily serving of vegetables. The little sweet and innocent sounding carrots can be found just about everywhere these days, from grocery store produce sections to school lunch trays, yet prior to the late 1980’s they were completely unheard of. That’s because they had yet to be invented.

The story behind the ‘birth’ of baby carrots sheds a whole new light on the bright orange, peeled and ready to eat veggies. A farmer in California named Mike Yurosek was sick of throwing out all the ugly misshapen carrots he’d spent so much time and effort growing. Back then, and as they do now, grocery stores rejected any carrots that didn’t meet specific color, shape, and size standards because consumers only buy what they see as the ideal or perfect fruits and vegetables.

The accompanying video goes over this industry practice and how much waste it incurs, as well as the emerging drive to re-direct “ugly” food to those who need it most. Back to the story- rather than lose money and see his crops go to waste, Mr. Yurosek tried a new approach and he turned his ugly carrots into little baby ones by re-shaping and peeling them into uniform pieces. Stores loved them, consumers loved them, and the rest is history.

However, in those early days baby carrots were peeled and whittled down in much smaller batches which allowed for a lot more quality control and oversight. Today millions of pounds of rejected carrots are processed every week in an entirely automated process meant to be cost-effective and fast to keep them cheap as can be.

Carrots are fed into a machine, their protective skin is removed, then they are cut and re-shaped before being soaked in a chlorine bath. This final part is necessary because the baby cut pieces contain a lot of germs and bacteria on them after going through the machinery. Who wants to feed their children or ingest food that’s supposedly fresh, yet it has been chemically treated and bathed in chlorine? Not me!

Instead you can simply buy normal carrots rather than baby cut ones without having to sacrifice the flavor and crunch that makes carrots delicious in the first place. Regular carrots are often cheaper, they last longer and won’t turn white, and most importantly they don’t need to be treated with chlorine because they never get processed through a machine.

So the next time you’re are the supermarket pick up a bunch of regular carrots instead of the pre-packaged baby ones. It’s the safest, smartest, and healthiest choice you can make for both yourself and your family.

He Weirdly Starts Rubbing This Potato All Over His Grill. But The Reason Is Brilliant!

Now grilling season just heating up it’s the perfect time to get some bbq life hacks. Food just seems to taste better when it’s barbecued to a perfect smoky finish right on a hot grill. One downside to cooking directly on the grate is that certain foods tend to stick to it. Often, a slab of juicy steak will adhere to the hot metal and dislodging it can be a pain in the rear. Even worse is when it’s burgers that stubbornly stick to it and attempting to move them causes the meat to fall apart.

Thankfully, there is a way to prevent the frustrating grill-stick problem, by treating your grill surface and making it non-stick. All you need is a potato, a fork, and a grill. Start by heating up the grill until it’s nice and hot. Then cut the potato in half and stab one of the halves with a fork so that the white fleshy side faces out. Place the cut open side of the potato down on the hot grill and rub it back and forth across the entire area. You should hear a pleasing sizzle sound and only need to go over the metal grate several times to create a non-stick coating.

How does this work? The starch in the potato gets pulled out when heated up and transferred to the hot metal surface, where it forms a non-stick barrier, perfect for grilling on. Overall it’s an effective, easy, non-toxic, and non-messy way to quickly prepare your grill and stop food from sticking on. Check out the short video for more information and make sure to share this tip with friends and family, enjoy!

Daddy Tells His Huge Great Dane He Can’t Have His Sandwich. The Big Baby Proceeds To Throw a Hysterical Tantrum.

In this hysterical video, Dinky the Great Dane throws a tantrum because his daddy, Ron, won’t give up his egg sandwich. It looks so delicious, and Dinky loves eggs so much. He doesn’t hold anything back as he lets his dad know just how he feels about the situation! In response, dad uses logics, “you didn’t even eat your own food, why do you want mine?” to which Dinky repeatedly replies, “I love you!” It is a respectable and exceptionally effective move.

The situation eventually becomes too much for his brother, Romeo, who jumps up and performs a perfect sad puppy routine that no human, no matter how strong, would be able to resist. In a feat of indelible persistence, Dinky and Romeo finally manage to break down dad’s defenses and manage to get a little piece of that sweet egg sandwich action. The real winner in this story is their little brother Peanut!

While his brothers were losing their minds over the dire situation, he played it cool and let them do all the work. He made sure to stay close by, however, so that when the inevitable payout commenced, he would get his fair share. Whereas Dinky got paid for his incredible vocal skills, and Romeo for his amazing sad eye performance, Peanut garners his wages through sheer conniving intelligence. Well played, Peanut, well played.

The FDA Is Now Advising Parents To Immediately Stop Giving THIS Food To Babies!

Although there have been serious health concerns about inorganic arsenic found in rice as a whole, and in particular in infant rice cereal, the rice industry has continued to deny the potential dangers.  As they have insufficiently lowered the levels of inorganic arsenic in infant rice cereal, which is one of the first solid foods introduced to infants, the Food and Drug Administration have issued serious warnings about severely limiting the amount of this food regularly given to most American babies.

Because infants are so small, they are regularly taking in 3 times the amount of rice most adults consume.  This is despite the fact that inorganic arsenic has long been known to be carcinogenic.  It is not only dangerous to infants, but to children in utero during pregnancy. In 2016 the FDA concluded from a great deal of evidence, that  high exposure to inorganic arsenic during pregnancy, resulted in children having significant developmental and cognitive deficits.

Although traces of inorganic arsenic are found in other foods, such as fruits and vegetables and grains, it seems that  the level of absorption in rice makes it far more of a potential health hazard.  The FDA recommendations for safe levels of inorganic arsenic in rice cereal (a mainstay of most infant’s diets at around 8 months) is being met at less than one half of the rice cereals still on store shelves.

The video you are about to watch from Consumer Reports, stresses the point that this arsenic level, although somewhat improved in infant cereals still remains unregulated in ready-to-eat cereals consumed by children and adults alike. It is their recommendation, that any rice-based food be severely limited or avoided completely until the FDA strictly meets the levels that will no longer pose such disastrous health risks.

The FDA advises that parents choose oat, barley, and multigrain cereals to avoid arsenic exposure.  After watching the video from Consumer Reports

This Is Why There Is Extra Wood On The End Of Your Chopsticks. I’m So Glad I Learned THIS!

If you’ve ever used disposable chopsticks then you know how tricky handling them for the first time can be. While some people are naturals at using the eating utensils, for most of us it takes a little more time, patience, and practice to truly master the art.

And unless you eat a lot of Chinese takeout, you probably don’t use them all that often. When you do happen to come across a pair, the first thing you have to do is unwrap them from the packaging. Next, you split them apart and break them in two, now they are ready for grabbing food and eating with.

If you’re like me and millions of other people who do exactly that, you just used your chopsticks wrong. That’s because there is a better, more useful way to break them apart. Instead of snapping them in half, break off the very top portion and then use that piece as a chopstick rest.

Now you have a clean spot off the table to rest your chopsticks and nothing will end up getting dirty. The clever trick has been described by many as a chopstick life hack after an Australian woman, who goes by the name BortofDarkness on Twitter, posted an image of it which quickly went viral.

The internet responded and for the most part people are fascinated by the information. Some even shared other related life hacks of their own. A popular tip that many people swear by involves modifying chopsticks to make them a lot easier to use.

The simple trick requires just a rubber band and a thin strip of paper. In this short video DaveHax shows you how to make a pair of user-friendly chopsticks. These are great for beginners and those who always seem to struggle with chopsticks, so be sure to check it out.

All you need to do is wrap a rubber band around one end of the chopsticks. Roll up a little piece of paper and slide it down in between the 2 sticks until it reaches the spot right in front of the rubber band. When you close the chopsticks it will spring back open since the rubber band and piece of paper give it resistance.

This makes them similar to tongs in that they grab food, and picking things up this way is a lot easier to do than with traditionally held chopsticks. Give it a try the next time you order some tasty lo mein and see if it works for you!
