Junk Food Day

To some people, every day is Junk Food Day. For the rest of us, Junk Food Day is an opportunity to guiltlessly eat your favorite junk food.
Sometimes, the idea of being healthy, preparing a balanced meal, and snacking on carrot sticks isn’t too appealing. Junk Food Day is all about satisfying your cravings for something naughtier, greasier, and definitely more fattening than the nutritional but not-very-exciting meal you know that you really should be eating.

The term “junk food” was first popularized in the 1960s, but it really only caught on following the release of the top radio hit, 'Junk Food Junkie' in 1976.
