The Flatulence Consideration

Here’s the scenario: Last week I opened my fridge to select from an assortment of leftovers. I needed to choose my meal to eat right before I hosted game night. My choices were:

  • deviled eggs
  • cheeseburger
  • salmon
  • chicken Khao Soi (curry soup)

If you were hosting game night, is there anything you would take into consideration before choosing your meal?

The title of this post probably gave it away, but it crossed my mind that a good host would consider his or her FP (flatulence potential) when choosing their meal. So I went with the cheeseburger.

I’m not saying that any of the other options would have guaranteed a gassy experience for my guests, but I wanted to reduce the FP as much as possible.

As silly as this is, this was a legitimate consideration while I made my dinner choice, especially with such an array of high-FP foods. Has this ever occurred to you?
