Food, glorious food! It’s all we can think about, really. Day in, day out. If you somehow manage to scan our daydreams and our thoughts while we’re busy at work, you’d discover that roughly 34.7% of our waking moments are spent fantasizing about all the delicious things we’d love to be eating right about now.

We’re willing to bet that quite a few of you Pandas are culinary experts just like us: you enjoy a tasty meal, whether it’s a healthy dish or a cheeky take-out. If you combine that love of food with some memes, then you’ve got the perfect recipe for success. On the menu today, you’ll find the most mouth-watering memes from the ‘Wannabe Food’ Facebook page.

Check out the crème de la crème of hilarity-meets-food below, and remember to upvote the most appetizing pics as you’re scrolling down. Tell us which memes you found the most relatable, Pandas. And if you’re feeling like sharing, we’d love to hear all about your fave cheat meals. (It’s pizza and powdered donuts for us, in case you were wondering!)

One last thing... would you like fries with your memes?

Bored Panda had a chat about food with pie artist and author Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin. She kindly answered our questions about why we love talking about food so much, how we can enjoy eating more, and shared a simple way how we can improve our diets right now.

"Some people think the internet was created to help remote universities share datasets with each other faster, but we know the real reason: to disseminate photos of kittens and our lunches as efficiently as possible. I kid, but only a little," she said that people have been drawn to images of mouth-watering food since the time we began depicting images in two dimensions. Jessica drew attention to the fact that an entire category of Salon painting, Still Life, is dedicated to "Renaissance dudes sharing pics of their lunches to make each other jelly."

"Why do we love looking at food images so much? For the same reason we like looking at the other (ahem) kind of picture the internet is famous for—we need food to live and thrive as a tribe/species, so we're hardwired to seek it out."

Pie artist Jessica, the author of 'Pies Are Awesome,' explained to Bored Panda that there are big benefits to eating 'mindfully.'

"Eating 'mindfully' goes a long way towards ensuring we not only derive more enjoyment from our meals but eat less and better," she said. "When you are eating, only eat. Don’t be walking around the kitchen. Don’t be scrolling on your phone. Don’t be watching TV or otherwise multitasking. Sit down with just you and your food and actually pay attention to each bite you are putting in your mouth. This will help you slow down, taste your food, and your brain will be more likely to acknowledge that you just ate, and ruminate on how you feel about what you just ate."

Meanwhile, Jessica suggested swapping all beverages out for plain ol' water in order to improve our diet. Though, she admits, it might be an unpopular opinion on her part.

Wrap them in some puff pastry and throw it in the freezer. Quick meal for another day

"A glass of water and a piece of fruit is way better for you than a glass of fruit juice. A glass of water and a handful of candy or chocolate bar is way more satisfying than a glass of sugary soda," she said that you get fewer calories and junk chemicals this way.

"You can cut out a ton of calories without making a ton of sacrifices on your plate by kicking all the drinks in your fridge to the curb, and upping your water intake. Save the non-water drinks for special occasions only. Your body (and especially skin!) will thank you."

The ‘Wannabe Food’ page has over 651k followers, and is a branch of the ‘Wannabe Ent’ project. They’re ace when it comes to picking out great memes to share with their fans. Everyone needs a bit of extra humor in their lives, and these guys know how to entertain, that’s for sure.

Whatever the future might bring—good or bad—food and comedy are two pretty universal things that probably won’t change much. In fact, we’d go as far to say that they define humanity at its core. In short, we love laughing at things and we love eating. Mix ‘em both together, and it’s a Relatability Cocktail (on the rocks).

Laughing at this as I’m currently eating a packet of corn flakes (dry) because I can’t be bothered doing anything.

Recently, Bored Panda spoke about the future of internet trends and memes with pop culture and social media expert Mike Sington, from Los Angeles. He shared his thoughts about what things he believes are temporary and will be looked upon as strange in the future, and what kind of content survives, no matter what.

"Sharing personal photos of yourself, your life, your family, and especially your children will probably seem very peculiar in a couple of decades," the expert said.

"People just now are becoming increasingly concerned about privacy on the internet, and it will.”

According to Mike, humor is a powerhouse that is “here to stay,” no matter how much we travel into the future.

"Funny thoughts, anecdotes, and memes are popular now, and will have staying power on the internet. People often go online for escapism, and humor has always provided that. I don’t foresee that changing," the social media expert told us that humor is timeless.

I want a scene same as these, EXCEPT the chef grab them by their shirt, make them sit down and eat while observing them with a frying pan on their hand until they finish.

"If something becomes popular quickly and seems to come out of nowhere, it’s more likely to be a passing fad," Mike warned.

"Long-term trends with staying power seem to build more slowly, but at a steady pace. Be careful of jumping on the 'bandwagon' yourself, just because something is popular in the moment. That’s the scenario that’s most likely to haunt you in the future," he said.

So much true, except for pastry. In classical italian/french pastry two grams of something and one minute in the oven makes the difference between a perfect fluffy and tasty sponge cake and a messy slab of overcooked cookie that tastes like asphalt.

As much as we love gastronomic memes, the truth of the matter is that food prices have been soaring this year. Earlier in August, CNN reported that grocery prices had increased by 13.1% over the past 12 months. That was the largest annual increase in the United States since the year ending in 1979, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“The cost of eggs has soared 38%, and prices for other goods have also jumped: Flour is up 22.7%, chicken 17.6%, milk 15.6%, ground beef 9.7% and bacon 9.2%. Fruits and vegetables got 9.3% more expensive,” CNN lists just how much more expensive core purchases have become.

The situation isn’t much better across the pond, in the United Kingdom. Prices have risen at the fastest rate in over 40 years, and inflation hit a whopping 10.1% in July. It’s not just food that’s getting more expensive: energy costs are rearing their head, too. So much so that it’s not just ordinary Brits but also business owners who are worried about making ends meet.

Culinary expert and talented pie artist Jessica also recently shared a few great ideas with Bored Panda, on how to save money when cooking in this economy.

"Everyone is feeling the pinch the world over right now—so don’t go it alone! Team up with friends and relatives and develop your cost-cutting strategies together. Your purchasing power is greatly increased when you shop together and you can share tips and keep an eye out for deals together," she advised.

"If you are looking to cut back on your family grocery budget, consider adding one or two extra meatless days to your existing schedule. Meat, especially red meat, just costs so much more to raise, process, and transport safely compared with alternate sources of protein. Unless you’re dealing with mystery-meat level fast food processed stuff, it’s never going to be able to compete on price," the culinary expert told Bored Panda.

Because when used as a dye, the item being dyed turns various shades of red. My great grandmother was weaver who spun and dyed her own wool and she always used red onion skins to get a gorgeous dark red color.

"You can certainly freeze fruits, veggies, and meat to eat later without sacrificing nutritional value. Just make sure you read up on the correct way to do this to avoid spoilage and freezer burn,” she said that freezing food is a viable strategy and allows you to buy in bulk, at a discount.

"Buying groceries items in large lots and splitting between multiple families is a great way to take advantage of bulk discounts when your own pay-check doesn’t permit you to go out and invest in 10 lbs of cheddar on your own. Bonus points if you have a friend who is able to buy from restaurant suppliers directly or is part of a co-op!"

It’s not the surface area, is it? If the sandwich on the right has the following edge measurements: 2x4x2x4= 34 (?)… and the sandwich on the left has 4x4x4= 32… Thickness and corner-to-corner measurements don’t factor in, do they? … it’s 12:10 AM, and I’m laying here doing sandwich math. I need a new brain.
