A Day When You Can Eat Just What You Want
Eat What You Want Day is held every year on May 11th. It’s a day when you can choose to eat anything that takes your fancy, Quite a refreshing change when we are all so stressed about what we eat.
The media constantly bombards us with images of the perfect body, and it seems like every week we’re told about something else that’s not good for us. Add to that all the health food fads that come and go, it’s no surprise we get so worried. Eat What You Want Day is a breath of fresh air, but how did it come about?
Who Created Eat What You Want Day?
It was a husband and wife team that came up with the idea of a day when you shouldn’t be feeling guilty about what you eat. Thomas and Ruth Roy run a herb and holiday business under the name of Wellcat Herbs and Wellcat Holidays. The idea was to create a day when people could let go of their food hangups and live a little.
What You Can do to Celebrate the Day
The name of the day kind of gives it away. Eat whatever you want, it’s really that simple. Don’t worry about calories and have a day enjoying what you eat for a change. It could be a day scoffing pizza, or a day filled with ice-cream desserts. Eat at home or go out and enjoy a pig-out at your favourite food establishment. Do it alone or why not invite your friends to enjoy the celebration?
