How to use eat in a sentence?

  1. Walter Willett:

    If someone replaces eggs with doughnuts, other refined starches and sugar or saturated fats, I'd rather they eat eggs, but for someone who really wants to be in optimal health. putting the emphasis on plant-based protein sources like steel-cut oatmeal and nuts would be a better way to go.

  2. Mickey Mehta:

    Today life is going through unstable paces, animals slaved in cages and food exhibited in show-cases. We eat thrash, our language is brash, life is a dash and humanity is about to crash. Black is cash, party is a bash and cleansing is just a splash. Wake up, come back to nature or else a human being will just be reduced to a caricature . Let your life be naturalized, get MickeyMized.

  3. Eddie Jackson:

    It’s like the military. When you’re forced to have your clothes folded a certain way, even when you leave, you still fold your clothes that way. I left the game, but I still find myself being conscious of what I eat.

  4. Hermione Gingold, from a press report, 1973:

    A diet is when you watch what you eat and wish you could eat what you watch.

  5. Joseph Palma:

    That's the only way I can eat. It's cheaper, is almost half the price, sometimes more than that, i keep it for the longest I can keep it so I can wait for my next check for the food stamps.
