“Greasy food might not be good for your body, but it does wonders for the soul. A healthy diet may prolong your life, but what would you have to live for? What is the point of living to a hundred if you have to subsist on bland food? One may as well die of boredom.” – Jessica Zafra

The world is full of wild array of delicious foods, and the vast majority of them are rich in fats and grease. While those of us on a crusade for better health often find ourselves avoiding these amazing foods in favor of a healthier life or thinner waistline, Greasy Food Day encourages us to take a day off from that diet and remember the good things in life. Otherwise, as Ms. Zafra says, what else are we living for?

History of Greasy Food Day

Greasy foods get a lot of hate from health fanatics, those delicious meals that make our mouths and our souls sing. Whether we’re talking about the rich stretchy cheese that graces the tops of our favorite pizza dishes, or the flavorful and delicious sub sandwiches that shine with grease as we unwrap them, greasy foods can truly be said to be one of the greatest things in life.

Now it is true that greasy food should be consumed in moderation, but sometimes moderation is a thing for other days. Greasy Food Day encourages us to indulge in our favorite things and remember what it was like to truly be able to enjoy anything without consequence.

What’s your favorite greasy food? Juicy hamburgers? Crunchy tacos? Hot dogs bursting with flavor? Sausage rolls? Maybe you’re Canadian and enjoy the overwhelmingly flavorful and greasy dish that is poutine?

Whatever your poison, Greasy Food Day is your excuse to dive in and enjoy them like there’s no tomorrow.
