Could you live on a diet where you only ate foods that are emojis? You can now! Here are 13 tips for mastering the all-new emoji food diet.
Eat lots of fruits and veggies.
The emoji library is abundant with fruits and vegetables, so a large portion of the emoji diet will consist of fresh produce. Try having some fresh strawberries or bananas for your breakfast and experiment with some sort of a vegetable soup for your lunch.
Experiment with eggplant.
One of the most under-utilized vegetables is one of the most popular emojis. The eggplant emoji is often used inappropriately, but it’s more than appropriate to use this tasty vegetable to create some fun concoctions. You can use it on its own or mix it with other ingredients to make a ratatouille of your liking.
Balance the amount of fried food you consume.
A lot of the food emojis you love to use are likely the fried foods that are delicious to eat. Alas, that’s not the best decision health-wise for any diet. So whether it’s the chicken leg, the hamburger or the smiley french fries, feel free to treat yourself to a night of fast food while also choosing wisely.
A surprising amount of food emojis are seafood related. You can take your pick from sushi or shrimp and add rice, a fish cake or a steaming bowl to get your taste of the sea.
Explore Japanese cuisine.
Given that emojis originated in Japan, it’s no surprise that a lot of Japanese food items are prevalent in the emoji database. From rice crackers and rice balls to dango and oden, you’ll have fun trying all these tasty Japanese foods while also expanding your horizons.
Indulge your sweet tooth.
If you like a good sugar rush, the emoji diet is for you! From lollipops and candy bars to cake and ice cream, there’s absolutely no shortage of dessert options for you when it comes to emoji food.
Enjoy some southern comfort food.
The food emojis also adequately represent some of the best southern comfort foods, such as ribs (the meat on bone emoji), fried chicken (the poultry leg emoji), corn on the cob (ear of corn emoji) and biscuits (the bread emoji).
Booze it up.
If there’s one thing the emoji collection has an emphasis on, it’s alcoholic beverages. You could pretty much have a different type of booze every night with your meals, so why wouldn’t you?!
Experiment with pizza.
The pizza emoji is one of the most popular emojis, so give special attention to the beloved food while on your emoji diet. Experiment with different toppings and flatbreads. You can fit a lot of veggie emojis as toppings on your pizza, too!
Eat a lot of pasta.
The spaghetti emoji means that pasta is fair game for your all-emoji diet. Use this to your advantage for delicious dishes that are low in both sodium and cholesterol.
Utilize the potato.
The sweet potato is an emoji that you probably hardly ever use, but you’ll definitely want to keep it around if you’re undertaking an emoji diet. From sweet potato dishes to classic mashed potatoes, it’s a versatile staple that you’ll want to have a lot of!
Try bento boxes.
You might be unaware of the bento box emoji, but it’s a helpful little guy that can greatly assist with your emoji diet. Bento is a single-portion takeout or ready-made meal that’s common in Japanese cuisine. If you ever feel like being lazy and having your meal already prepared for you, why not give a bento box a try?
Add some honey!
Honey is a healthy supplement that would go well with a wide variety of other food emojis, from fruits and toast to desserts or a hot beverage of your choice. Pair it with another food item to add some flavor!
