8 True Things About Food... As Told by Winnie the Pooh

The best parts of the day might just be the ones that involve lovely little smackerels to eat.

Winnie the Pooh knows it’s the only way to keep the rumblies in our tumblies humming happy tiddley poms, which is probably why you never find him far from a pot of golden, lip-smacking “hunny.”

And while that tubby little cubby has an obsession with food that goes beyond the pale (remember “Everything is Honey?”), his relationship with honey is pretty healthy. Mainly because he follows these 8 simple truths when it comes to eating and enjoying it:

  • Food, glorious food! 1 of 9

    Because there's nothing worse than being rumbly in your tumbly.

  • Truth: Anticipating a good meal can be even better than enjoying one 2 of 9

    "... Although eating honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called."


    Pretty sure it's when you know an upcoming meal is going to be so good that you need a moment to collect yourself and calm your inner food nerd squee.

  • Truth: Exercise makes you hungry! 3 of 9

    "When I up, down, touch the ground it puts me in the mood. Up, down, touch the ground in the mood for food."


    Isn't that the only reason to exercise in the fist place? 

  • Truth: A good meal is always worth waiting for, as long as the waiting doesn’t take very long 4 of 9

    "It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like, 'What about lunch?'"


    Seriously. Food first. Talking later.

  • Truth: Cravings are a bother 5 of 9

    "When you go after honey with a balloon, the great thing is not to let the bees know you're coming."


    Winnie the Pooh isn't the only one who's done silly things to satisfy his cravings. You know it's true.

  • Truth: Food and friends are better together 6 of 9

    "A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside."


    Happy sigh. There's truly nothing better than enjoying yummy noms with friends.

  • Truth: There’s nothing wrong with being food-oriented 7 of 9

    "That buzzing noise means something. Now, the only reason for making a buzzing noise that I know of is because you are ... a bee! And the only reason for being a bee is to make honey. And the only reason for making honey is so I can eat it."


    Same reason a lot of us spend our days thinking about the next time we get to eat.

  • Truth: Snacking is the only way to avoid getting hangry 8 of 9

    "I'm so rumbly in my tumbly. Time to munch an early luncheon. Time for something sweet!"


    Anyone else never ever leave the house without enough snacks to keep you full through a nuclear fallout? 

  • Truth: Always keep a stash of the good stuff on hand 9 of 9

    "Oh, bother. Empty again. Only the sticky part's left."


    Why's the good stuff always gone?
