I first found Buzzfeed in about 2012 and I quickly became enthralled by their quizzes. They are so random and unnecessary, and they are unnervingly entertaining. Most of the quizzes only take a few minutes, so you can quickly find out all sorts of things you never needed to know about yourself. For a fun little quest, I let Buzzfeed decide what I eat for a day based on my food-related quiz results. It was surprisingly fun and I ate things I may have never eaten, like pancakes with a million toppings! And things I haven’t eaten since childhood, like a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich. If you are at a complete loss for what to eat, maybe try out a Buzfeed quiz and see where the whims of the internet take you.
Breakfast – Ravenclaw Pancakes
To decide what I was going to eat for breakfast, I took the quiz “Can We Guess Your Hogwarts House Based On The Pancakes You Make?”
Obviously, I got Ravenclaw, because I am a ride-or-die Ravenclaw at heart. Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure, baby.
The quiz was comprised of a series of choices for a wide variety of pancake toppings. I picked banana pancakes with maple syrup, raspberries and blueberries, chocolate chips and Nutella with a side of fried eggs. It turned out to be one of the best breakfasts ever!
I’m not sure if they served these in the Great Hall at Hogwarts, but I’ll be making them again because they are decadent and delicious!
Lunch – Peanut Butter and Jelly
My Ravenclaw pancake breakfast was scrumptious, but by midday, my tummy was hungry for more! I took the quiz “Which Iconic Food Duo Are You?” After picking a bunch of completely random things such as a weekend activity (shopping) and a birthday cake (rainbow layers, duh), I found out that I am the classic, iconic and comfortable PB&J!
I toasted a bun (I may have burnt it a little… charcoal is good for you, right??) and slathered on creamy peanut butter and blueberry jam. I forgot how much I love peanut butter and jelly! Salty and sweet on a pillow of bread.
I’m just wondering, if I AM peanut butter jelly, is it weird that I’m eating… me? Eh, it’s a delicious lunch either way. 🥪
Dinner – Spaghetti
For the last and final meal of my day entirely dictated by Buzzfeed quizzes, I took the quiz “We Know What You Should Eat For Dinner Tonight Based On The Vacation You Plan.” This was not a hard quiz by any means. If only math and history quizzes from school could have been as fun as planning your ideal vacation… 🌴
This particular quiz had me making vacation plans like a setting (the beach), an activity (swimming), and a drink (water). My amazing choices ultimately led Buzzfeed to recommend I eat spaghetti for dinner. So spaghetti, it is! I made Pasta with Broccoli and Bread Crumbs, a recipe from my new favorite cookbook, Salt Fat Acid Heat.
Now… Your Turn!
Ok, I let Buzzfeed decide what I eat for a day. Now it’s your turn! Maybe not Buzzfeed, but test your culinary adventure level by letting someone else decide what you eat for an entire day. You may discover some new favorites or reignite a love for a tried-and-true classic.
