Yes, it’s been a while since we’ve written, but this couldn’t wait. A few days ago we were sitting around the table at mealtime and I was encouraging our son to eat the crust from his toast. I told him that the crust is where all the nutrition is, and that it will also put hair on his chest.
And that is just when the bombshell was dropped. Courtney spoke up with an “actually.” Actually, that is probably not true, she said. Think about it, the composition of that crust is not any different than the rest of the bread. Nothing gets concentrated there. If anything the vitamins and minerals become broken, denatured, less useful, etc due to the higher heat that is experienced in the crust. A flood of emotions came over me as I realized I had been lied to my whole life. I was troubled. I was bothered. But then, I became elated. Thank you, Mrs. Food Scientist for enlightening us and opening our eyes to the truth once again.
For the record: there was no disputing that eating crust puts hair on your chest.
