Can safely say I have never heard of any of those except the rice @ wedding, but in part I thought that was more about the guests having fun throwing stuff around. 

 

In an unrelated note please excuse me, I must go off and buy a bag of oranges for Friday night...

probably deliberately omitted to avoid offending jews or/and muslims.

Both groups has their own sets of food superstitions.

if you break open an egg and find two yolks, that means someone you know will be getting married or having twins two chicks didn't get a chance to hatch.

If you drop a fork, a woman will come to visit. A knife, a man will come to visit. A spoon, a child will come visit.

 

This one works with a 100% probability half the time for me :rofl:

The only saying I actually believe is "you are what you eat".  This is true.

 

If you eat a lot of fatty foods, you become fat....if you eat a lot of vegetables rich in vitamins/minerals you get healthier and feel better etc etc

 

I highly doubt there's anyone on the planet who believes the OPs list.  Unless they have a mental illness.

How about dumb sh*t that people actually *do* believe, like eating local honey will help with seasonal allergies?  Or that genetically modified crops are dangerous to eat?  Or that eating before bed will somehow make you fat?

farmers would scatter broken eggs into their fields hoping they would bring forth an abundant crop.

 

Egg shells can be used as fertilizer (calcium) so that one isn't too far off depending on what your growing.

Don't eat peanuts at any kind of performance, whether it's a play or a racing event (really!). The legumes are believed to give the performers or players really bad gas..
