So you’re going on a first date. Mazal tov! There are definitely a couple of things you shouldn’t do and eating certain foods  is one of them, either because it will cause bad breath or stain your teeth or cause indigestion/belching/flatulence.

*peppers of any kind
*anything pickled
*blackened or pepper-crusted steak/fish/etc.

Being nervous and eating quickly can also cause you to burp so eat slowly and relax. And take opportunities to check your teeth in the mirror (or a knife or an app on your phone). If you do begin to feel a stomach rumble or your chest tightening then excuse yourself to the restroom quickly, pop a few tums or pepto, and when you return drink lots of water.

Any other foods you recommend avoiding on a first date?
