Honestly, I like eating salad for lunch. For one, it feels great to know that I've likely hit my daily vegetable quota (about 2 1/2 cups, according to the USDA) before 2 P.M.

The thing is, a poorly planned salad of just raw veggies and some protein only keeps me full for a couple of hours, which means I'm raiding my emergency snack stash by mid-afternoon, and then again before the end of the day.
If you follow me on Instagram, you're likely familiar with my deep and endless love for the doughy, saucy, and cheesy Italian pie that is pizza. So when I discovered that a local Yonkers joint was selling the "Super Slice," a two-foot-long slice of pizza equalling 4-5 regular slices of pizza, I knew I wanted in.

Ever wondered what it would be like to sing "O Come, All Ye Faithful" after downing a ghost pepper? Probably not, but you should probably watch this video now that your curiosity's piqued. Chili Klaus, a YouTuber already famous for the clip of orchestra members eating ghost peppers, has now pivoted his experiment to Denmark's Herning Boys Choir. The group sounds perfectly delightful during their pepper-free run of the song, but once the heat hits, many of the choristers have a hard time keeping up with their parts. This is to be expected, of course — once over a million Scoville units are in your mouth, it can be difficult to concentrate on anything else. Still, there are a few singers who just chug on through the pepper pain like it's nothing. We assume these musicians either eat ghost peppers for breakfast or are robots.

Donald Trump’s preferred order at McDonald’s has been revealed as a waistband-busting meal containing alarming amounts of fat and salt.
