Apparently We've Been Eating Apples Wrong Our Whole Lives

The right way will surprise you (and it's kinda gross)

It's been reported that Americans waste about 40 percent of the food we buy.

Not only that, but apparently we’re throwing away 30 percent of every apple we eat too. That's right, when we eat apples by biting around the sides — as most people do — we’re missing out on almost a third of the fruit. FoodBeast wants you to know there’s a better way: Bite it from top to bottom (or bottom to top).

We love the idea of not wasting food, but what about the seeds?!

Watch this video to see the suggested technique in action -- and never eat an apple the same way again:

Now let us know in the comments: Would you ever eat an apple from top to bottom, gross bits and all?
