We spend most of the year plugging away at the gym and watching what we eat to stay fit and healthy. But every now and then, it’s important to treat yourself to the delicious foods you love—without guilt. That’s why we make it a point to celebrate National Eat What You Want Day on May 11th every year. As the name suggests, National Eat What You Want Day is a time to indulge in your favorite treats, and it comes as no surprise that pizza is the highest ranking cheat treat in the U.S. In honor of this wonderful day, Sipipa is offering a one-time special: create your own pizza, pasta, or salad!
National Eat What You Want Day Ideas
Above all else, National Eat What You Want Day is a time to try foods you’ve always wanted, or put together flavor combinations that break the rules. On this special day, you can try it all!
Try a new restaurant.
Is there a restaurant in town you’ve been dying to try, but you just keep putting it off? Well, this is the perfect day to pull the trigger and try it out. Not only will this give you a much-needed break from the same old turkey sandwich, it will also broaden your horizons and encourage you to break out of your comfort zone. And you never know…this might just be your new favorite restaurant.
Make it count.
This is not a day for half cheats or healthier versions of your favorite foods. If you’re going to have a slice of pizza, go all in; if you’ve been craving a bowl of ice cream, opt for something rich and decadent. National Eat What You Want Day only comes around once a year, so let’s make it count!
Switch up your routine.
Every now and then, nothing sounds better for dinner than bacon and eggs. Likewise, we’ve all daydreamed about what’s for dinner at 9 a.m. On National Eat What You Want Day, everything is fair game. Breakfast for dinner, dinner for breakfast…try it all! It’s the one day of the year where you don’t have to worry about mealtime rules.
Plan your budget.
If you’ve been thinking about scarfing down a massive lobster tail with lemon and butter for weeks now, this is certainly the day to indulge your guilty pleasure. Unfortunately, not everybody has $100 to drop on dinner-for-one. To better prepare yourself for National Eat What You Want Day, save and plan out your budget in advance, so you don’t have to feel guilty about spending too much on dinner.
Stop counting calories.
It goes without saying, but National Eat What You Want Day is about splurging on all your favorite foods. If you spend the day counting every calorie, you’re going to end up feeling bad about yourself. One day isn’t going to blow your diet, so enjoy it while it’s here.
