What Happens In Your Body When You Eat Ramen And Gatorade

What Happens In Your Body When You Eat Ramen And Gatorade | A Sense of the Ridiculous | Scoop.it
By Briana Rognlin for Blisstree.com Most of the time, we hear about avoiding processed foods because they'll make us fat.

 

The project looks at two subjects eating two similar meals: one composed of processed foods (gatorade, ramen, and gummi bears); the other of homemade versions (hibiscus drink, homemade broth with noodles and gummi bears made of juice). What happens to the foods is drastically different; possibly because, as Bardin puts it, Top Ramen is made to survive armageddon, while homemade noodles are made to be eaten.Warning: It's best to watch this video after you've eaten your breakfast.

What’s a man?

What’s a man? | A Sense of the Ridiculous | Scoop.it
