Mammals are unique in that they’re practically the only creatures that take the time to chew their food. Or at least that’s what we thought. New research shows that stingrays also use chewing motions to grind down their meal. And as this video attests, it’s pretty damned weird to watch.
Quick, how much time do you think you spent eating yesterday? What about the day before that?
By now, in 2015 with gluten excommunicated from diets and paleo celebrated and superfood vegetables being discovered left and right, we all generally know what kind of food is good for you and what kind of food is bad for you. But do most of us really know what a calorie is other than a big number being worse than a…
Breakfast. The most important meal of the day. And you’ve been eating well. Here are 17 delicious breakfasts you ate this week.
It takes a lot of hard work, a considerable amount of natural talent and a little bit of luck to be able to eat like Homer Simpson in real life. Caolan McArthur and CinemaRaven managed to accomplish the Herculean feat (with the help of a sped up camera) and basically created a live action version of The Simpsons.
I have a problem. It's a kitchen gadget addiction. Ever since I was a kid, I've always wanted to try the latest and greatest cooking appliances—or at least all the As Seen On TV and Sky Mall shit. Well, that addiction just paid off: The Anova Precision Cooker has been bringing me stupid amounts of joy for the past few…
It's kind of funny how our favorite tiny hamster looks exactly like Kobayashi, the famous competitive eater, while mowing down hot dogs. They're using the same method! The hamster looks much cuter though. Much cuter.
This slow motion video shows how fish actually eat. Instead of moving their whole bodies as most people think, they expand and throw their jaws forward to create a space where water rushes into their mouths to suck in their prey. It's kind of gross and disgusting—but so damn cool.
Created roughly 4,000-5,000 years ago in China, the earliest versions of something like chopsticks were used for cooking (they're perfect for reaching into pots full of hot water or oil) and were most likely made from twigs. While it's difficult to nail down a firm date, it would seem it wasn't until around 500-400 AD…
You use them every day. They're some of the most simple, but useful, devices in existence. They're used the world over. But who, exactly, invented knives, forks and spoons?
This cutlery might look good enough to eat—and it almost kinda is, because it's made from a biodegradable plastic that breaks down over time.
Kids who hate stinky cheese and greens often grow into adults who can't get enough of them. Why do our tastes seem to transform in our teens? And can we change our tastes deliberately as adults? Here's what scientists know so far.
I'm one of those people who never takes anything anyone says at face value but absolutely swears by expiration dates. Ew the milk expired today?! Eat my cereal dry. The bread smells fine but it says it's not BEST BY today anymore. Go get a sandwich at the deli. My blind adherence to those labels is idiotic but I know…
Losing weight is tough. You've got to eat healthier, start exercising, and just stop being such a lazy, horrible slob in general. That is unless you get a pump that literally sucks food out of your stomach and replaces it with water after the fact. Talk about enabling.
In a move that surprised no one, you totally overdid it yesterday. You had to have thirds on ham. You took down a gallon of spiked eggnog. You were feeling festive, but now you feel like crap.
Sadly, Thanksgiving comes but once a year. Which means all that amazing food you're about to encounter is but a fleeting experience. You want to get the most out of it, but you can only eat so much, right?
There's a chance we've been deluded by the marketing of organic food; a new study by Stanford University School of Medicine researchers have found that it might not actually be better for you.
Why can't you stop eating at the sight of delicious fatty or sugary food, even while your stomach is full? Answer: You have a good system in place to avoid over-eating, but it's overridden by your caveman instincts. Confused? Watch this video.
If you're looking to lose weight, there are two major divided schools of thought. The first is that all calories are created equal, and as long as you use more energy than you take in, you'll do fine. The other is that our body handles and uses calories from different food sources in very different ways, so the actual…
