cupcakeIn life every so often there are those aha! moments that leave you stunned and wondering how it's possible you never thought of things that way before. Often we're taught to do things one way, and just keep doing them the same old way for most of our life, especially when it comes to things we do frequently -- like eating. So it's incredible to find out there's another, better way to do so.

Over the past couple of months I've come across a series of ways to eat various everyday foods that have seriously blown me away, and I've come to realize just how wrong and ineffective some of my eating habits are. From catsup to cupcakes, here are five foods you're probably eating wrong too.

Prepare to be amazed.

1. Strawberries

Love strawberries, but when cutting away the green part, I often feel like I lose a lot of what I paid for. Check out this amazing technique to pop the top effortlessly and get more berry for your buck.

2. Cupcakes

All that fluffy icing is so delicious, but so difficult to get your mouth around. Forget all the frosting on your forehead and nose and try this instead.

3. Tic Tacs

You go for one or two and end up with half the pack in your hand, right? That's because you've been doing it wrong. Watch this and see how Tic Tacs are supposed to be dispensed.

4. Ketchup

You know those little white cups you pump ketchup into at fast food restaurants and how it takes like a bazillion of them to do the job? That's because you probably don't know how to use those little white cups. Behold.

5. Potatoes

Love potatoes but often pass because peeling is such a pain? Me too, until I saw this completely magic method for doing so. Mashed potatoes for all!

Which of these surprised you the most?
