When I first started learning about nutrition, it blew my mind how much rubbish I was eating and what I was serving my family at meal times in the name of health. Though, frankly, I never did get my eleven servings of grains a day. Who the heck can get eleven servings of grains a day? Eleven? Seriously? Eleven?
Aside from the fact that it’s pretty much impossible to eat that many grains, the number itself just sounds so random. You know how a wormhole can only remain open for 38 minutes? You know where the writers got that from? 40 minutes just seemed like too much of a round number and it was less believable. It’s more sciencey this way. It kind of made me think that they pulled eleven out of thin air.
