National [Insert Food Here] Day

Today is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, yesterday was National Watermelon Day, and tomorrow is both National Mustard Day AND National Waffle Day. I don't know about you, but I've started to get National X Day exhaustion. Maybe it's the result of social media and having the food(s) of the day plastered all over every screen I have for 24 hours, rinse and repeat, but it just feels like way too much. Does everything need a day and does every day need a thing? In case you hadn't already guessed, my answers are no and no. That said, these are the nine foods (and one drink) that I think are worthy of a day of national recognition, dare I even say global recognition. Some actually already have days or close-ish days/months which I've noted thanks to  Foodimentary.


My favorite dessert. For me, every day is Brownie Day.

I have always loved peas. One of my favorite utensils as a child was my pea pusher; a perhaps ridiculous, but actually quite useful piece of cutlery given to me (my parents) when I was born.

No day for these guys :(



I love pizza. My dad loves pizza. I assume I inherited my love for the cheesy, saucy goodness from him. Pizza happens about once a week in my house.

Broccoli is possibly my favorite veggie. Carrots and spinach are close runners-up.

No national day for the broc either.


Chicken Kabobs

Is it just me or does everything taste better on a stick? Chicken kabobs = major win in my book.

You already know I'm a cup-a-day kind of girl. Favorites: green, earl grey, and matcha.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches

Creamy or crunchy, raspberry or strawberry, on a bagel, bread, or even a wrap, pb & j is bae.

 The ultimate cereal? Yes times a million. I totally "crave those crazy squares."

March 7th: National Cereal Day



Perfection in fruit form. Maybe it's because I loved the book Blueberries for Sal or maybe it's because they are just so damn delicious.

What foods do you think deserve their own day?
