A Pickle A Day…

June 22nd, 2015

An apple a day keeps the doctor way used to be the food advice that everyone lived by. Well, move aside Apple! On Sam Tabar let on that another green food item is swooping in to take your place.

New research shows that pickles have a hidden benefit. No longer will they just be known for their deliciousness, or perfect compliment to burgers or hotdogs. According to GrubStreet pickles can help someone to feel less anxious!

So now snacking on a pickled food might be a great idea for those who find themselves nervous in any sort of social situation. It could also be a good idea to try on before a test! What’s the worst that could happen? You eat a snack, and nothing happens.

Of course fad diets always come and go, and different foods are always known to do something else depending on the week. Therefore, it’s hard to buy into these claims. But, it’s still nice to take them with a grain of salt. If you don’t mind pickles, what’s the harm in eating a few a day and seeing what would happen.

Come August, the study will be published in a magazine. Should you expect pickles to fly off the shelves? Probably not.
