    If there is nothing wrong with eating shell, I don't see why not do this and save yourself some time.


    I've been resuming this high calcium diet and devour cantaloupe , kiwis, and watermelon like a Savage which are fun to eat just like apples one bite at a Time, skin seeds and all.

    I also eat apple cores and orange peels. there are lots of vitamins kept in the areas that we don't eat, and sometimes the most of the vitamins are in the parts you don't eat like the white stuff in the oranges.

    I'm the mad man seated on the sidewalk eating hard boiled eggs like a snake in the morning watching the sunrise with an inebriated grin. Downing the eggs raw is wonderful as well. Please share a song with me about eggs.

    Apple seeds contain amygdalin which breaks down to cyanide if the seeds are crushed or broken. Not sure how many you would need to eat for it to become dangerous.

    Today I discovered that from the Dollar Tree I can get frozen pinneapple, heat it up, put it onto a hot dog bun and put some barbeque sauce on it. Its not exactly like california pizza but its somewhere in that neighborhood. The trick is to make sure the pineapple is not cold.

    I also for the first time made bread with yeast, and I also put mashed great northern beans in that had too much garlic in them. I didn't know how to toss the dough properly, but I let it rise for 6 hours. I baked it in a toaster oven. It came out very nice, full of very subtle flavor. Its like a flavor that I would describe as blue, because it would go with any food just like blue goes with any other color.

    The amount of amygdalin that one gets from an apple or two is so small that it will not harm you. It takes the seeds and cores from about 40 apples to kill you:

    I generally eat the whole apple, chewing the seeds and all. (The cyanide cures cancer ;)). I used to eat peanuts whole, as well. The shells just add fiber.
    I've also been known to eat raw potatoes like apples.

    I guess this is that point where extreme ends meet:
    An apple a day keeps the doctor away. 40 apples though, and you'll be spending quite some time with the doctor.

    Do what with potatoes?
    Chew the seeds and all?
    Eat them with whole peanuts for the fiber?
    Eat them raw like apples?​
    There's not enough information here!

    Paint smiley faces on them and sell them twice the price as artefacts from far flung cultures.
