There are ten guilty pleasure meals that we all love. Yes, they’re probably a bit embarrassing, but you know you love them. They’re those meals that you choose whenever you’re having an off day. These guilty pleasures make you feel better in the toughest of times. They’re either carb heavy, fast food, or completely unhealthy. Donuts, Taco Bell burritos, and Top Ramen are just a few to name. The fact that these meals are so unhealthy is what makes them such a pleasure. We all have them so we shouldn’t be ashamed. My mouth is watering just thinking about some of these meals. Follow along to find your favorite guilty pleasure meal.
Donuts aren’t technically a meal, but we act like they are. We grab them when we need a quick fix for breakfast or maybe even a snack. They’re tasty but are filled with empty calories. Every time I go and grab a donut I know it’s a guilty pleasure.
2. Chinese Take-Out
Sometimes you need a little MSG in your life. Chinese take-out is one of the best guilty pleasures. The noodles, sauced chicken or beef, and the fortune cookie are delicious. We all know it’s completely unhealthy, but sometimes Chinese take-out is all you need.
3. Greasy Pizza
Nothing is better than a big greasy pizza. Where I go to school, there’s a pizza place that all my girls and I go to when we need a fix. It’s probably my favorite pizza ever. It’s thin, greasy, and 100% unhealthy. That doesn’t stop me though; it’s a guilty pleasure.
4. Fried Chicken
Fried chicken is that classic comfort food. We all know that fried chicken is unhealthy, but it’s addicting. My mouth is watering thinking of the crispy skin and the juicy meat. It’s one of those guilty pleasure meals we can never give up.
5. Anything From McDonald’s
If McDonald’s isn’t on your guilty pleasure list, then you’re lying to yourself. McNuggets and fries (really anything on their menu) is a guilty pleasure meal. We all hate to admit it, but this is a guilty pleasure. I’m not scared to admit that sometimes it’s good to grab some McDonald’s.
6. Top Ramen
Top Ramen is a college kid staple, but also a guilty pleasure meal. I’m not going to lie I usually have a few packs of Top Ramen in my cupboards just in case I get the craving. It’s an easy meal and a bit of a guilty pleasure. This is one of my favorite guilty pleasure meals.
Pop-Tarts aren’t technically a meal, but sometimes we substitute one for breakfast. Pop-Tarts are a guilty pleasure meal because they are sweet and delicious. Pop-Tarts are so juvenile but you know we can’t resist. I think any Pop-Tart with chocolate inside fits the bill.
8. Taco Bell
Taco Bell is the holy grail of guilty pleasure meals. You don’t have to admit it to yourself, but you know that T Bell is delicious. For me, when I’m having a bad day, I know that Taco Bell can fix anything. Their burritos, tacos, crunch wraps; anything from Taco Bell is a guilty pleasure meal.
9. Steak & Mashed Potatoes
It’s a well-known fact that red meat is terrible for you and that potatoes aren’t the most nutritious. However, steak and mashed potatoes are one of those guilty pleasure meals. It’s a classic, and it’s delicious whether you get it at a restaurant or make it at home.
10. Chicken Wings & Ranch
Chicken wings and ranch is one of the best guilty pleasure meals out there. Nobody can resist wings and ranch. It’s a classic, but we all know it’s not good for us. Wings and ranch can be for lunch, dinner, or a midnight snack. They’re perfect.
