Foods and Drinks to Avoid on Dates

dating, coffee, garlic, beansDates can be incredible fun, but we would be dishonest if we said they were not also stressful. Once you have gone on a few more dates with the same person, you tend to fret less. However, the foods and drinks you order on a date may cause further mishaps for you.

Beans are a HUGE no-no, for obvious reasons. Not only do beans have a certain unsavory side effect, but they can also bloat you. If you order a meal that includes beans, eat only a small amount to mitigate their effects.

Garlic can also cause you problems. Not only will garlic’s smell stay in your mouth long after you have finished eating, the herb absorbs into your bloodstream and pores. Keep any garlic to a minimum if you cannot avoid it completely.

Drinkwise, be careful about coffee. Coffee dates are very popular, but unfortunately coffee can stain your teeth. Coffee breath can be difficult to get rid of quickly. If you go on a coffee date, try an iced coffee beverage. This way, you can use a straw and keep the coffee from getting on your teeth! Also order a water on the side so you can sip it along with your coffee. It rinses out your mouth and helps combat the dreaded coffee breath.
