Meet The Girl Who Eats 10,000 Brussel Sprouts A Year
9:30 am, December 24th | by Laura Donovan
Like many of us, 26-year-old supermarket sprout scout Amy Lance despised vegetables growing up. Most people just learn to eat watery, flavorless food with age, but former veggie hater Lance found a way to love brussel sprouts — so much so that she chomps down 10,000 of them every year, 500 a week to be exact. The grocery store worker, who makes the call on which sprouts work best for Waitrose, explained to The Sun:
“I think that eating so many my body has got used to them. If you just have them at Christmas, the high dose of fibre in one go is what creates the embarrassing moments. So I don’t upset my family when eating.”
Extreme? At least she’s obsessed with consuming brussel sprouts and not McDonald’s chicken nuggets like some unfortunate souls. Her skin actually looks nice, unlike that of the teenager who has solely been living off the Mickey D’s product her whole life.
