“I just ate the worlds hottest hot sauce!”
Any sauce that says it is the “World’s hottest” and it isn’t 16 million scoville units is lying to you. It is highly unlikely that you will eat it and I do not recommend that you do, but it is a sauce none the less. And since it is 16 million scoville units it is not possible to get any hotter. Unless of course you eat lava and I have heard the two compared and most of the time people will choose the lava.

Burgers ‘n Dogs
Hamburgers and hot dogs are a big part of summer eating but they don’t have to be a diet disaster. Start with a 100% whole wheat bun instead of white for a healthy dose of fiber and watch the fat content of the meat. The average beef and pork hot dog contains about 180 calories and 17 grams of fat before you add a bun and toppings. Turkey dogs are tasty and won’t sabotage your diet—you can have two of them for less than100 calories. If you’re going for a burger, stay away from the high-fat toppings like cheese, mayo and bacon. Choose cheese slices made with skim milk to reduce the fat content and load your burger with mustard and fresh veggies instead. Here’s the burger ‘n dog breakdown:

Hot peppers add that extra kick of heat to many beloved dishes from many cultures. This heat comes from a compound in peppers called capsaicin. While this compound can be quite tasty, capsaicin is also the substance that causes peppers to burn eyes and other sensitive body parts. Concentrated capsaicin is so powerful that it is the chemical used in pepper spray. Some spice lovers may eat hot, capsaicin-rich foods with abandon, but caution must be used for anyone handling these spicy food staples as the burns they cause to skin and eyes can be severe and painful. Does this Spark an idea?

Just like all foods it depends on when it was opened, how long it has been opened and what is in side. Apples are fine longer if they are not cut open. Once you cut them open, with in seconds they will begin to turn brown. Vegetables are great but don’t let them sit to long or they will go south in a hurry. And that has a lot to do with the environment they are in.
