As we all know, spring break is steadily approaching. That means that we’ve started skipping meals, going to the gym twice a day, and making some serious life decisions about what we put in our mouths. We all want to look good in our bikini’s, whether we’re going to South Beach, Panama City Beach, or the Keys. And have you ever heard the saying: “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels?” Of course you have. But I am here to banish this ludicrous statement once and for all.
Food DOES taste better than skinny feels, because skinny is, like the phrase says, just a “feeling.” I can weigh 300 pounds and still “feel” skinny. Just like I can weigh 100 pounds and feel fat. The number I see on the scale should not dictate the way that I feel. So stop counting calories and eat that donut if you want! You’ll look good in that bathing suit regardless.
1. Insomnia Cookies
Because Insomnia kills the cookie game and they’re open ‘til three am. What better way to end your long night of studying than by stuffing your face with their god-like cookies?
2. Taco Tuesdays at Burrito Boarder
If you know me, you know that I am a huge advocate for Taco Tuesday, and Burrito Boarder does it like no other place in town. One-dollar tacos from 2pm to 2am! What more can a person ask for?
Whether it’s Dunkin, Donut Kingdom, or Krispy Kreme, all donuts taste better than skinny feels… and you know it.
4. Tacospeak Queso
Let me re-phrase that. Literally EVERYTHING at Tacospeak is bomb, but since I already have tacos on this list, it would be unorthodox for me to name them twice. Damn the constraints that society has placed me in.
5. Pepperoni Pizza at Momo’s
Momo’s Pizza. ‘Nuff said.
6. A Cuban Sandwich at Kübano!
Take it from me, a Hispanic girl who lives in the Cuban sandwich capital of the world: Miami. I know a good Cuban sandwich when I see one, and Kübano! has it down-pat.
7. The Gator Hater at Monks
Stop everything you are doing and go get a Gator Hater at Monks. Apart from the kick-ass name, the Gator Hater is the epitome of a classic burger, with bacon and cheese slathered on a juicy burger atop buttery sour-dough bread.
8. 2-4-1 Margaritas at Cancun’s
This list would not be complete without alcohol. The all day, everyday BOGO margaritas at Cancun’s have to take the cake.
9. A Pub Sub
Everyone knows that Publix has the best chicken tender sub in Florida. Just go to the Publix across Heritage on a game day after a tailgate and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
#SpoonTip: Publix offers Easy Online Ordering so you can just walk in the store and pick up your sub.
10. Sweet Potato Pancakes at Canopy Road
If anything on this list tastes better than skinny feels, it’s these pancakes from Canopy Road. The restaurant actually holds the title for best pancakes in all of Tallahassee… by my standards at least.
