Today is National Junk Food Day!

Can you believe it has its own day? Pretty interesting. Junk food is great. I got to wondering, though, what exactly makes a food junk food? Is it convenient food? Is it food that is bad for you? What is the criteria for junk food? I had to find out. According to http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ the definition of junk food is the following:

1: food that is high in calories but low in nutritional content
2: something that is appealing or enjoyable but of little or no real value
Well, now we’re in business! I know what it officially is! I can figure out what my favorite kind is now. So let’s see, I love milk shakes, banana splits, zebra cakes from Little Debbie‘s, banana Moon Pies, french fries (crinkle cut are my faves), banana pudding, banana split blizzard from Dairy Queen, hamburgers, and so many more.
I wish “real” food tasted as good as junk food does! Wouldn’t it be nice if broccoli tasted like chocolate? I would definitely eat more broccoli! But maybe that is the point. Junk food tastes great but we are only supposed to have it once in a while. I need to quit eating so much of it. It’s hard, though. And I think it is especially hard if you are single because it is a whole lot easier to stop and pick up something for dinner than it is to fix a meal for one. Fixing a meal for one seems to be a lot of effort for very little results.
Anyway, what is YOUR favorite junk food?
