All those weeks of healthy eating and exercise are almost behind you. I know, it’s hard being so good for so long. It’ll all be worth it when you get that ideal bikini pic on the beach. You deserve to treat yo’self after all that torture. You deserve a pizza (or two). You deserve an ice cream sandwich. Hell, you deserve all the fried, sweet, goodness that you can get.
Looking for a nice, big breakfast? Find options here. Just feeling a side today? Thats okay, check out what could be in your future here. Whether you’re feeling something sweet or savory, we’ve got the food for you. 32 options… who’s stopping you from trying them all?
1. Brunch Burgers
A fried egg makes everything 10x better, I swear. So why not put it on a burger? It’s the perfect addition and you really can’t go wrong. Next time you’re making burgers at home, why don’t you throw a fried egg on top? Spice things up a little.
Any breakfast item that could be considered a dessert are always a yes in my book. First, pancakes are easy to make (either with Bisquick or your own fancy mix of ingredients). Second, they’re totally customizable. Pile them high with any toppings you want. Do it.
Yummy, full of carbs, and you can make them yourself. Have them for breakfast with cream cheese or as an egg sandwich. You can also fill them with lunch sandwich toppings. You really can’t go wrong. Who said carbs were the enemy?
Pile them high with all sorts of toppings. It’s time to get creative, people. Breakfast doesn’t have to be boring and it doesn’t have to be bland either. Add a little sweetness to it. Sometimes just syrup isn’t enough.
Donut shops are everywhere, anyway, so you should really take advantage. They aren’t expensive and they taste damn good. Load up with a box of donuts. Share them with your friends… but make sure to eat a lot for yourself; you survived Spring Break.
6. French Toast
So many opportunities for a dank french toast. Top it, stuff it, fry it… You name it, it can be done. Feeling like some fruit? Add some fruit on top of there. Feeling something sweeter like a dessert? Chocolate and peanut butter are allowed. There are no limits.
7. Slutty Brownies
I can’t believe there was ever a time where I didn’t know about slutty brownies. They’re so simple to make and are the perfect combination of two classics: cookies and brownies. If you’re a big sweets person, slutty brownies are definitely for you.
8. Ice Cream Sandwiches
There’s nothing better than biting into a warm cookie sandwich full of cold, sweet ice cream. These are perfect for hot, summer afternoons or an after dinner treat. They’re easy to make at home and are beginning to pop up in stores all over. You can’t miss em’.
For all you guys who went to Cabo, grab a churro to make it feel like you never left. These deep fried sticks are covered in cinnamon and sugar. There’s nothing quite like a sweet, portable snack. Oh, plus you can fill them. Now who wouldn’t want that?
10. Deep Fried Oreos
You don’t have to wait until the Texas State Fair to try these babies. If you’re feeling adventurous, these aren’t too hard to make in your own kitchen. Fry some up for yourself and see what you think. Hey, you could even test out the different Oreo flavors.
Whether it’s Sprinkles Cupcakes or a local cupcake bakery, you deserve this handheld piece of heaven. You really can’t go wrong with the cake and icing combo. Plus, it’s a smaller portion than cake so you’re actually being sort of healthy. Think about it.
S’mores don’t have to be a summer staple anymore. If you want s’mores, goddammit, go get yourself a s’more. All you need are marshmallows, graham crackers, chocolate, and a heat source. Not too hard. You have no excuses.
13. Dessert Pizza
Why not? It’s like a savory pizza but better (and a dessert). You get all the pros of a slice of pizza, plus the added sweetness. Whoever invented this was a genius, I’m telling you. Have a couple slices, no one’s counting.
14. Shaved Ice
It’s almost summer time. Start snow cone season early, cuz why not? It’s the perfect refresher after a long day. Plus the fruity flavors are to die for. Grab a cup, ice, and some flavoring and you’re ready to go. Also, add booze for a good time.
15. Ice Cream
Grab a tub and go (or make it yourself), it’s okay, you won’t be judged. Every spoonful is just as amazing as the first. Throw it in a bowl or a cone, either way it’s going to be delicious. It’s the ultimate dessert staple so you really should eat some.
16. Caramel Apples
Take it back to the good ole’ days when these were a regular after-school snack. The smooth, rich caramel covering tastes great paired with the tang of a green apple. Throw it on a stick and you’ve got yourself a snack on the go.
17. Lava Cake
You can’t resist this chocolate-y goodness. Sure, you can attempt to make these at home but they just taste so much better at a restaurant, don’t you think? There’s nothing like chocolate on chocolate, in my opinion. It’s too good to pass up.
Dessert in a glass, yes please. You don’t always have to make your own milkshakes. Restaurants are becoming much more creative with their shakes. Adding all sorts of toppings and putting different flavors together. Who knows what’s next.
Warm cookies fresh out of the oven will never cease to excite me. There are so many kinds to try. Make them at home, make them at your friends home, eat the store bought ones, or go to a bakery. Regardless, they’re going to taste amazing.
Let’s face it, pasta is always the right choice. Whether you’re feeling a snack or a meal, pasta is an easy go-to food. Pop it in some boiling water, get some toppings together and voila. You’re practically a gourmet chef.
I know it’s been so hard holding back the urge to order late night delivery ‘za. Now is the time to make up for it. You can order a large or you could make one yourself. Experiment with toppings. There’s nothing stopping you.
Staying away from Chipotle until Spring Break was the hardest thing I’ve ever done and I know a lot of you feel the same way. Burritos and burrito bowls are the perfect meal. With so many combinations to choose from, there’s no telling what you’ll come up with.
23. Fried Chicken
Who could say no? Biting into a nice piece of fried chicken after a long day is enough to cheer anyone up. Head over to KFC and grab a bucket or make it for yourself, it’s not too hard. Regardless, you’re gonna get some fried chicken, okay?
24. Mac N’ Cheese
How can you stay away from something that looks this good? Kraft mac n cheese is a thing of the past (but it’s still good). However, gourmet mac n cheese is popping up all over the place. With breadcrumbs, multiple cheeses, you name it. You won’t be sorry.
No questions asked, this is what you need to make for yourself when you get back. It’s totally simple. Just grab the Tostitos, pile on the cheese, and stick it in the microwave. Eat it with salsa, sour cream, guacamole and you’ve got yourself a nice little snack.
26. Grilled Cheese
Just look at that picture. Now, if you can say no to a grilled cheese after seeing that then there is something majorly wrong. Grilled cheeses are a classic. Doesn’t it just take you back to childhood? Well, now you never have to grow up. Make yourself one today.
27. Tater Tots
Told you, fried eggs are always a good call. Who knew that there were so many possible tater tot toppings? You can add cheese, chili, fried eggs, basically whatever you want. If there are tots on the menu, you bet I’m gonna order them. They’re too hard to resist.
28. Cheese Fries
You could eat these forever and never get tired. The taste of melted cheese and french fry seasoning is something that I crave all the time. Great for sharing but who has time for that? Get a whole order for yourself, you know you want to.
29. Garlic Knots
If only I could have these right now. Bread, butter, garlic-y goodness. Sign me up. Another added bonus, these knots are bite sized and perfect to eat before or during every meal. You’ll be licking your fingers after eating these bad boys.
30. Animal Fries
I mean, come on. In N Out animal fries are a classic. They’re the perfect drunchie but who says you can’t eat them sober too? There’s no shame in that. All that cheese and special animal toppings are too good to pass up.
31. Pull Apart Bread
So. Much. Cheese. And bread. These two ingredients are never a bad thing. Bread is your friend. And eating this pull apart bread is entertaining. Watch the strands of melted cheese stretch as you grab the perfect bite.
32. Mozzarella Sticks
You’re never too old for some mozzarella sticks, lemme tell ya. They’re the perfect bite of savory, cheesy goodness. Dip it in some marinara sauce and you’ve got a combination that’ll leave you wanting more.
