May11 Fun Holiday – Eat What You Want Day

Break all, but one of your dietary rules on May 11 or Eat What You Want Day. The only rule you must obey is, of course, eat what you want, however you want it, how much you want it!

Forget your diet and eat whatever you want for one day on Eat What You Want Day.

In today's fast-paced world, where time is premium, diets have taken control of people to wish to live a healthy life. All of us have some kind of dish or food that they love but have to stay away from because it is not very healthy. This unofficial holiday allows people to take one day from the year and guiltlessly indulge in their favorite foods.

How to Celebrate?

  • Eat whatever you want. Pig out on decadent desserts, stuff yourself with delicious food, go into a food coma feasting on rich, yummy dishes.
  • Ever wondered what ice cream would taste with ketchup? Today is your day to try it! Try out all the oddest combinations of food you can think of.

Did You Know…

…that the word buffet originates from the French word for the piece of furniture food was served on?
