February 24, 2021 – National Tortilla Chip Day | National Heart Month
Have You Taken The “One Chip Challenge?” It’s Not For The Faint Of Heart!
Welcome to February 24th, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate brave mouths and healthy hearts.
One of the best parts of eating at a Mexican restaurant is gorging on chips and salsa before the meal arrives. But sometimes, one tortilla chip is more than enough. For the past few years, a company called Paqui has been daring customers to eat one of their chips. Just one. The catch is that this one tortilla chip is spicier than almost any other food. To be specific, it’s 8,000 times hotter than a jalapeño pepper. The single black chip comes in a coffin-shaped box with a giant skull on it. We are in no way recommending that you try this, but be sure to check out videos of the One Chip Challenge on YouTube. And celebrate National Tortilla Chip Day with some mild mannered chips and dip while you watch videos of the brave, crazy people who think they can handle spicy food.
While Valentines Day has come and gone, there is still time to celebrate someone who deserves your attention: you! February is National Heart Month and while your New Year’s resolutions may have already been broken, this month is the perfect time to learn a few small steps that can make a big impact. Speaking of steps, it takes as little as 30 minutes of exercise, five times per week to jumpstart your heart health. Learning about heart healthy foods can have a ripple effect because even swapping out delicious healthy food for some of the junk can make a difference in how you feel right away. The key is understanding that your small positive choices add up and believing that you are worth it!
