Best Way to Eat With a Beard

Eating is truly one of life’s great joys. However, if you happen to possess a beard, which if you’re reading this then there’s a good chance you do, you know that eating certain foods can become challenging to say the least. It might take a little extra planning, but each of us is still capable of enjoying our favorite foods, one delicious bite at time.

One guy who has definitely dealt with this before is friend of Urban Beardsman and all around righteous guy, Jeff Buoncristiano. For Jeff, no food possesses more complications for beadsmen than the glory that is the sandwich. However, by following just a few simple steps, you can enjoy even the sloppiest of sandies with minimal beard intrusion.

According to Jeff, the best idea is to cut your sandwich up into smaller pieces, preferably quarters rather than halves. Then once you’ve picked up your smaller sandwich piece, hold the food using only your back fingers, leaving your pointers and thumbs free. As you bring your sandwich towards your mouth, press your front fingers together and ride them up towards your mustache as you touch your mid-lip. Splay your mustache, removing any hair from your mouth’s entry way, and go in for a bite. Repeat as needed.
