Wow I like weird fruits and I have only heard of three of these before. Only actually tried one-the kiwano melon. I eat those regularly.

I made the mistake once of trying the African cucumber.  It, uh.  Tastes like cucumber.  Yeah.

Kiwano is absolutely delicious wtf you talking about

DON’T FORGET THE LAU LAU (rose apple), WHICH HAS A TEXTURE OF A PEAR, BUT FUCKING TASTES LIKE A ROSE SMELLS

Blew my fucking mind when I tried one.

  • Question: Help! It's a thousand goddamn degrees outside and I don't want to eat food that's fucking hot! Do you have any recipes for food that isn't hot that isn't super-reliant on fresh vegetables (like salads, which seem like all I can find) as those are not fucking easy/cheap to get? - Anonymous

    YO MY WARRIOR FRIEND. 

    THERE ARE INDEED A PLETHORA OF FOOD ITEMS MEANT TO BE CONSUMED COLD, AN EXCEPTIONAL THING IN THE RISING FURY OF SUMMER MONTHS.

    SALADS ARE INDEED AN OPTION. 

    COLD SOUPS ARE ANOTHER FUCKING AWESOME DISH. THERE’S A METRIC SHIT-TON OF DIFFERENT KINDS. (ALL GLORY TO THE GAZPACHO) 

    CHILLED ONIGIRI IS ANOTHER FAVORITE OF MINE (basically balls of rice, often with ingredients in the center. I like putting canned tuna or dried berries in mine. Plain is also fucking good. Don’t underestimate its power.) 

    THERE ARE SOME COLD NOODLE DISHES JUST WAITING TO PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE WITH PURE MAJESTY. 

    REMEMBER THAT MINT AND MENTHOL MAKE HIGHLY EFFECTIVE BREATH-CHILLERS, IF YOU WANT TO COOL THAT DRAGON RAGING IN YOUR GUT. DISHES THAT CONTAIN MINT, EVEN IF THEY ARE SERVED HOT, WILL HAVE A REFRESHINGLY CHILL ‘FEEL’. 

    ALSO NOTE: THERE IS A REASON SPICY FOOD IS EATEN IN HOT CLIMATES. NOT ONLY DOES IT GROW EASILY IN THAT ENVIRONMENT, BUT SCIENCE SAYS EATING ‘SPICY’ THINGS WILL CAUSE YOUR OVERALL FEELING OF OVERHEATING TO DECREASE. 

    SO WHILE YOUR MOUTH MAY RIVAL SAURON’S SEXY EYEBALL, THE REST OF YOU CAN CHILL WITH THE LOTHLORIEN ELVES LIKE THE CLASSY MOTHERFUCKER I KNOW YOU ARE. 

    A note about mint and menthol that I think is really cool (hey, get it?): menthol literally activates the same calcium ion channel protein in sensory neurons (say, on your tongue) as temperatures below like 28 degrees Celsius. Similarly, capsaicin (in jalapeños and cayenne peppers) binds to the same protein that detects really high heat (over 48 Celsius). These proteins change the concentration of calcium ions inside the receptor cell by opening a channel, eventually building enough charge to send an action potential to the brain to tell you about something being cold or hot.

    TL;DR: “hot” foods with capsaicin are telling your brain that there’s heat, even if there’s not. “cool” foods with menthol tell your brain that it’s cold, even if it’s not.

    THANK YOU, SCIENCE SIDE OF TUMBLR.

Scientists now say that five portions of fruits & vegetables a day is no longer enough, and that we need seven and mostly of vegetables. Oh and you can forget the frozen variety; they don’t count.

Alarmingly for some who thought they were doing the right thing, tinned and frozen fruit may not be helpful at all. …There was a surprise finding – people who ate canned or frozen fruit actually had a higher risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer.”

What would POTUS drink?

This is a great read, even if you aren’t in Seattle and don’t know the area. You will learn more about all the US’s presidents than you ever did memorizing their names in grade school.
