7 Foods That Give Post-Meal Clarity

February 9, 2022

Have you ever sat on the floor with your smeared lips after eating a meal, and just asked yourself, “What have I just done? Why do I feel empty? Was the insane craving worth it? Was it worth all that money?”

If your answer is yes, you probably just ate one of these meals.

1. Peppered snails

The post-meal clarity that comes after eating peppered snails is perhaps the most intense. You’ll sit down and ask yourself why you just spent ₦5,000 on two pieces of snail, and still feel like nothing has entered your stomach. It’s worse if you’ve been craving the snail for a long time.

2. Shawarma

This person didn’t lie at all. The thing with shawarma is that once you begin to crave it, it feels like nothing you do can fill the void until you spend your last ₦2,500 on your favourite vendor’s shawarma. Only to finish it in five bites and sit there with your hands and mouth messy, and shawarma paper all over the place.

3. Nkwobi

Why do people keep eating nkwobi when they know they’re just going to complain about how it’s too small and too expensive? Why?

4. Asun

Imagine buying asun as a movie snack and it finishes before you know the main character’s name. You’ll now start eating onions.

5. Pounded yam

The feeling that comes after eating pounded yam is feeling of uselessness. Because now that you’ve eaten three wraps, you cannot move. What if armed robbers visit you?

6. Anything you buy from a Lagos restaurant with… fancy ambience

7. Burgers

Is it just me, or does eating burgers always end with, “I’m sure the ones abroad taste better than this”?
