While Everyone Else Diets, You Can Eat More Of These 7 Foods

While Everyone Else Diets, You Can Eat More Of These 7 Foods

Most of us know that eating in moderation is a major part of a healthy lifestyle. But for many of us, that sadly translates to eating less food.

While that’s sound advice regarding many of our favorite foods ― brownies, for example ― we’re going to be honest. The restrictive nature of this philosophy goes against our rebellious nature and makes healthy eating a little less appealing.

That’s why we’re going to take a different approach and focus on foods we should all be eating more of. That’s right, we said more. Sounds pretty good, we know, and it makes that whole healthy eating thing feel a little more fun.

This Rescue Pup Is The Only Foodie You Need To Follow On Instagram

This Rescue Pup Is The Only Foodie You Need To Follow On Instagram

When it comes to food, most dogs are like vacuum cleaners: They inhale anything you put in front of them.

Los Angeles-based rescue pup Popeye takes a different approach. He poses patiently with countless mouthwatering dishes that even we couldn’t keep our hands off of for long. Clearly, Popeye understands the value of a good Instagram shot.

We all know that food Instagrams are good, but pet Instagrams are better. Put them both together? You’ve just struck gold.

Popeye wasn’t born the Instagram foodie he is today. When owner Ivy Diep found Popeye, he was a skinny stray pup with long, matted hair ― badly in need of some TLC. Though Diep and her husband weren’t looking to add a new dog to their brood, they were quickly taken with Popeye’s charms.

“Didn’t take long for him to make himself comfortable at our home with our other pups and for us to fall in love,” Diep told The Huffington Post.

Diep soon began taking Popeye along on “Instagram dates” with her friend Jen.

Now You Can Whip Up A Demogorgon Pie Thanks To Netflix And ‘Stranger Things’

If you’re still not over the “Stranger Things” hype, don’t worry, because Netflix isn’t either.

The streaming service just uploaded two “Stranger Things”themed recipe videos on their YouTube channel and the treats are, well … strange!

Both recipe videos feature the iconic, can’t-get-out-of-your-head theme music of the show and include a scene from the series. One recipe is for a sweet Demogorgon Pie and the other is for a disturbing soup they call “French Onion Barb.” (We miss you, Barb!)

 

Demogorgon Pie is a pumpkin, cherry, and blackberry pie that looks like everyone’s favorite terrifying monster.

It also involves a lot of tediously placed almonds, but rest assured: We’d most definitely eat it. Which is good, because Netflix warns us in the video’s caption that if bakers don’t “eat the pie,” they’ll be “eaten by the pie.”
