More Than Just a Cheat Day

Since when did “good vs. bad” go from being a classic dynamic in a superhero movie to the way that we mentally label our food? International No Diet Day is more than just a holiday that calls for us to uninstall that calorie tracker and chow down on all decadent desserts and other dream foods. It’s a worldwide movement to throw out those labels and embrace ourselves in all our shapes and forms, inside and out. Take that self-love to the kitchen with these recipes that are all about loving what you eat, no strings attached!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun(fetti)


The Perfect Funfetti Cake

Olive and Artisan

“Fun” is right there in the name of the dish, so you already know that this dessert is bound to be a good time. There’s no better way to celebrate No Diet Day than with this celebratory cake that's covered in sprinkles.

Easy Cheesy


Cheese Ramen (Ram' and Cheese)

Pups with Chopsticks

Transport yourself back to those college dorm days with this unique take on the classic mac-n-cheese! Upgrade those instant noodles with rich, cheesy ingredients that create a super easy and super comforting combination.

Death By Chocolate


Chocotella Brownies

Food Guru

Putting Nutella in brownies is pure genius. With only 5 ingredients, you'll have these brownies ready in under 30 minutes, so go on, treat yourself!

Fancy Pants


Blueberry Balsamic Grilled Cheese

Live Eat Learn

Grilled cheese doesn’t get better than this fresh new take that incorporates berries, goat cheese, and prosciutto. Enjoy it with a side of arugula or take the traditional route by adding some hot tomato soup to the equation.

Picture Perfect


Peanut Butter Tarts

Compelled to Cook

Filled with creamy peanut butter and rich chocolate, these tarts are the very definition of sweet, sweet indulgence. These are so easy to make, but that drizzle of ganache and sprinkling of chocolate and peanuts on top make these an extra pretty shareable.

Three's a Crowd Pleaser


Three Cheese Pizza

30 Pounds of Apples

This Three Cheese Pizza is bound to be beloved at all group gatherings. Asiago, mozzarella, and cheddar melt together over a crispy crust to form an extra-cheesy pie (with an epic cheese pull!) complemented by notes of nuttiness and tang that take it to a whole new level. Don’t worry if you don’t have a pizza stone; an inverted baking sheet will work just as well!
