Forget about weight loss... TODAY is Eat everything you want Day!
You can eat whatever you want, isn't that enough cause for celebration? Everyone is different, so for some people, this will mean pigging out on junk food. To stop counting calories and go berserk, eating everything from ice cream to chocolate to cake and pie, and then some cookies with ice cream washed down with hot chocolate, and then some ice cream cake. You get the picture.
However, nowhere in the holiday’s description does it say that you have to take this route to gastronomic satisfaction. Aficionados of gourmet cuisine can choose to celebrate by splurging on a meal at a five star restaurant. Do you love lobster, but rarely order it because of its price tag? Understandable, but today is the day to take a break. So call the poshest place in your city and spend an evening feasting on your favorite delicacies and perhaps washing them down with a nice bottle of wine. Or, alternatively, you can try to recreate a favourite childhood meal in your home. Did your Mom use to make the best macaroni and cheese? Call her up and get the recipe! Nothing beats a good comfort food to make us feel full, happy and sleepy all at the same time, so forget about fat and carbs just this once and enjoy a bowl (or pot) of that filling, creamy goodness. Or maybe you’re a strict vegetarian who can’t help but miss steak or shrimp every now and then—if so, maybe you should treat yourself to something you wouldn’t usually eat just to reward your body for the tasty things it has to go without on a daily basis? The key is to eat something that you truly enjoy, so whatever food that is for you, get celebrating!
Perhaps try some of NYC's weirdest ice cream flavors? Beer flavored ice-cream? Sounds like a great idea for adults, but what do we tell the kids? http://bit.ly/1J5sr6S
It's also National Mocha Torte Day, so eat that too, or three, or four, or more if you want.
