Were bagels invented for teething?
A few weeks ago, a friend told me about meeting a baby who was using a bagel for a teething ring. Upon further investigation, it turned out to be a special bagel, a teething bagel, made by New York Bagel in Detroit. © Photo: Iryna Petrenko (iStock by Getty Images) A baby holding a necklace of mini-bagels This set off a long-buried memory in my brain of reading about how bagels were invented to feed teething babies and how I once reported this fact to a coworker, who accused me of being sarcastic.

Prime Day 2021: Best deals on air fryers from Ninja, Dash and more
Here are some of the best deals on air fryers from major kitchenware brands like Ninja, Dash, Oster, COSORI and more.Amazon Prime Day 2021 is finally here. During the Prime Day sales event, Prime members can take advantage of sitewide savings in categories ranging from tech and kitchenware to clothing and skin care. Amazon created the annual event in 2015 — and after six years, it’s grown so big that several other retailers are now hosting their own counter deals, including Target, Walmart, Wayfair, Kohl’s, Best Buy and Bed Bath & Beyond.
One way of doing so? Walmart is rolling out a new version of its app with universal search and checkout, according to Grocery Dive. This means that customers can finally purchase groceries and electronics all in one transaction moving forward.
Shoppers previously had two Walmart apps on their phone—an orange one for grocery purchases and a blue one for other kinds of purchases. Before the retailer merged the two apps into one, customers had to choose between either store pickup and delivery or shipping from Walmart.com. This process revealed Walmart's internal organization to customers, but the chain didn't want its org chart on full display. © Provided by Eat This, Not That! Walmart app
"We always say to ourselves internally we never want to show our customer our org chart. And what the blue app and the orange app is, it pretty clearly showed you the org chart . . . so we want to take that visibility away from the customer and be there for anything that they need from us," John Furner, the president and CEO the chain's U.S. business, said.

20. Red Robin's MadLove Burger
Nutrition: 1,060 calories, 57 g fat (25 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 1,410 mg sodium, 71 g carbs (5 g fiber, 27 g sugar), 65 g protein
Sure, you may have some mad love
for this burger—we know, it looks pretty delicious—but your waistline and heart will not feel the same love your tastebuds get to experience. At 1,060 calories, Red Robin's MadLove Burger is one of the worst burgers you could order for your health. If you still need your fix of red meat
, order the Keep It Simple
beef burger for 540 calories and a fraction of the fat and sodium.
19. IHOP's Mega Monster Cheeseburger
Nutrition: 1,067 calories, 60 g fat (22 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 2,084 mg sodium, 79 g carbs (3 g fiber, 30 g sugar), 54 g protein
Friendly's Honey BBQ Burger is packed to the brim with calories. It also costs you an entire day's worth of saturated fat and as much sugar as you would get from three Original Glazed Krispy Kreme Donuts. Instead, order Friendly's All-American Burger
for about half of the calories and saturated fat.
17. TGI Fridays Signature Whiskey-Glazed Burger
Nutrition: 1,110 calories, 55 g fat (25 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 3,530 mg sodium, 110 g carbs (3 g fiber, 76 g sugar), 46 g protein
TGI Friday's whips up some mean burgers, but do they really have to be this caloric? The restaurant's Signature Whiskey-Glazed Burger
—which is infused with Jack Daniels—may as well be marketed as a heart-stopper within a bun with 3,530 milligrams of sodium. For perspective, The American Heart Association
recommends that you consume no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day to keep your heart healthy. This burger costs you more than a day and a half's worth.This burger also packs 76 grams of sugar—about three times greater than the AHA
suggested consumption of 25 grams of added sugar per day for women and more than double the suggested amount of 36 grams for men.

Perkins dishes up an old-fashioned patty melt, but not one you should eat often. Why? There are over 1,100 calories in this sandwich, and may we remind you that's without any sides. If you must satisfy your hankering for this classic burger, split with a loved one rather than eating the whole thing yourself.
14. Red Robin's Monster Burger
Nutrition: 1,220 calories, 77 g fat (31 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 2,840 mg sodium, 60 g carbs (4 g fiber, 20 g sugar), 73 g protein
This burger isn't dubbed a monster for no reason. Without the fries, this burger costs you 1,220 calories on its own—that's more than half of your daily calories consumed in just one sitting. Toss in a side of steak fries, and you're looking at adding on an additional 360 calories to this already high-calorie meal.
13. Perkins BBQ Tangler Burger
Nutrition: 1,240 calories, 78 g fat (28 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 1,750 mg sodium, 82 g carbs (2 g fiber, 35 g sugar), 52 g protein

sandwiched in between a generous 6-ounce Angus beef patty and buttery brioche bun. It packs a lot of fat too, thanks to the bacon, beef, and sharp cheddar cheese between its buttery buns.Don't miss 9 Worst Fast-Food Menu Items That Are Loaded With Bacon
12. Chili's Southern Smokehouse Beef Burger
Nutrition: 1,260 calories, 83 g fat (30 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 2,360 mg sodium, 68 g carbs (4 g fiber, 25 g sugar), 61 g protein
This burger is stacked in smokehouse meats—just look at the size of it! It towers so high from all of the bacon that it needs to be held together by a large steak knife. Just how much is 1,260 calories? For context, you would have to eat almost 120 Lay's Potato Chips
11. Uno Pizzeria & Grill Bacon Cheddar Burger
Nutrition: 1,350 calories, 99 g fat (36 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 2,070 mg sodium, 35 g carbs (2 g fiber, 2 g sugar), 71 g protein

Nutrition: 1,400 calories, 93 g fat (37 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 3,370 mg sodium, 79 g carbs (4 g fiber, 25 g sugar), 60 g protein
We all know The Cheesecake Factory
offers some of the most caloric pasta dishes
and cheesecake slices on the planet, so is this really any surprise that their burgers are just as calorie-heavy? This burger alone comprises just over two-thirds of your daily calories.
8. The Cheesecake Factory's Mushroom Burger (GLAMBURGER)
Nutrition: 1,470 calories, 102 g fat (40 g saturated fat, 3.5 g trans fat), 2,700 mg sodium, 72 g carbs (4 g fiber, 22 g sugar), 65 g protein
This burger from The Cheesecake Factory may not look like it's huge, but trust us when we say it's loaded in calories, fat, and sodium. Or, better yet, just refer to the numbers above. For an equivalent amount of total fat, you could eat nearly eight Dove Milk Chocolate Bars
7. Johnny Rockets' Smoke House Double Burger w/ turkey burger on gluten-free bun
Nutrition: 1,490 calories, 100 g fat (30 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 3,690 mg sodium, 70 g carbs (10 g fiber, 20 g sugar), 80 g protein
This burger houses a whopping 100 grams of fat. For perspective, one stick of butter
contains about 92 grams of fat—which means you'd save 8 grams of fat by eating that rather than this meal.
6. Friendly's Triple Decker Bacon Burger
Nutrition: 1,512 calories, 101 g fat (47 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 2,981 mg sodium, 42 g carbs (1.5 g fiber, 9 g sugar), 103 g protein

a day to prevent heart disease and stroke
, according to the AHA. Also, this burger is just large and far too excessive for someone to be eating in one sitting.
5. Chili's The Boss Beef Burger
Nutrition: 1,530 calories, 107 g fat (42 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 3,130 mg sodium, 49 g carbs (4 g fiber, 16 g sugar), 92 g protein
This burger is truly an artery-clogging monster with 43 grams of saturated fat and over 3,000 milligrams of sodium. Not to mention, it packs over 90 grams of protein, which is far too much for your body to metabolize all at once
. In fact, different experts
say that the body can only utilize between 15-35
grams of protein at a time for muscle-building purposes—the rest is used for fuel or, at this hefty amount, stored in your body as fat.
3. Applebee's Quesadilla Burger
Nutrition: 1,650 calories, 108 g fat (40 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 3,690 mg sodium, 102 g carbs (8 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 70 g protein
Imagine if a cheesy quesadilla met a jumbo burger…this would be the result. Why have a standard bun when you could have soft flour tortillas enclosing gooey cheese and bits of red bell pepper and onion as the base? This burger packs 108 grams of fat primarily from the mass amount of animal products and byproducts that it contains. If you're wondering just how much grams of fat that is, imagine eating about 12 tablespoons
, or more than 2/3 of a cup, of peanut butter in one sitting.Check out What Happens To Your Body If You Eat Peanut Butter Every Day

of finely ground salt straight from the spoon.
