14 Over-the-Top, Totally Decadent Meals to Make on Cheat Day
In a perfect world, we’d eat healthy 24/7. But there’s something to be said for not driving yourself crazy by constantly eating kale when you want to be eating Kit Kats. In that spirit, consider the following 14 recipes for your next (well-deserved) cheat day.
Breakfast: Overnight Raspberry Cream Cheese French Toast Bake
Prepping it the night before really lets the anticipation build.
Breakfast: Waffle Bread Pudding
OK, this is technically dessert, but we won’t tell.
Breakfast: Double Chocolate Pancakes
No judgment if you just stare at this photo for a few minutes. (We did.)
Lunch: Creamy Tomato Soup with Cheese Toast Croutons
Just like when you were a kid.
Lunch: Beer, Cheddar and Bratwurst Pizza
Beer for lunch? Don’t mind if we do.
Lunch: Slow-Cooker Corn Chowder with Bacon
Who cares if cellulite is one of the main ingredients? You can eat a salad tomorrow.
Lunch: Fried Chicken and Waffle Sandwiches
Oh yes, these will do just fine.
Dinner: Slow-Cooker Beef Ragu Pappardelle
Why yes, that is a sizable dollop of ricotta on top.
Dinner: Ravioli Lasagna
Pasta mash-ups are what life is all about.
Dinner: Beef Short Ribs with Mushroom Risotto
Could this be two separate meals? Yes. Should it be? Not today.
Dinner: Chicken Stew with Fluffy Dumplings
And with that, "fluffy dumplings" is our new catch phrase.
Dinner: Taco PotPie
Way easier to eat (and clean up) than normal tacos.
