Eating food should come naturally to 99.9% of people. After all, you need to do it to survive. However, there are times when just how to eat your food becomes an issue. Have you ever been sitting at a fancy restaurant, paralyzed by your choice of forks? It’s unfortunate, but sometimes food can be way more complicated than we usually think. 

That’s why Internet geniuses created this genius hacks for eating food. Don’t let your snacks get the best of you. These ideas are simply brilliant. 

1.) This is for salad addicts: make to-go salads in mason jars. Whatever you do, do NOT put the salad dressing on the top.

2.) When eating tacos, use lettuce as a delicious safety net.

3.) Turning a cupcake into a sandwich is the ONLY way to eat a cupcake.

4.) Slice your hot dogs in a spiral-fashion before cooking them. They’ll heat evenly and just LOOK awesome.

5.) Instead of making traditional tacos, create your own to-go taco salad by putting taco fixings in a bag of Fritos.
