National Hot Dog Day 2015: How Do You Like Your Hot Dog?

National Hot Dog Day 2015: How Do You Like Your Hot Dog?

If you have not read any of my other posts: I recently discovered I may be gluten intolerant. And will be going to the doctor soon to test for celiac or chrohn’s disease.

This past Fourth of July, I enjoyed many standard all beef hot dogs. My family prefers Nathan’s brand beef hot dogs or Ball Park beef franks. I enjoy them as well. But since I made this recent discovery, I have had to make a lot of changes in my diet, while still attempting to keep myself sane with foods that I love.

For National Hot Dog Day, I celebrated a day ahead of time with two organic uncured beef hot dogs by Applegate (also gluten free)

This year National Hot Dog Day (USA) falls on July 23, 2015.

You may be tired of all these national holidays. So instead of simply saying have a great hotdog: I’d like to know how you like your hot dog. Not just how you like them. But what kind do you like? Do you like all beef? All meats? Or a certain brand? Even veggie dogs?

If you hate hot dogs more than anything, you can vent about that too.

You can even vent about the never ending list of national holidays

The floor is yours! (Or page, however you want to put it)

So apparently its National Burger Day.

If you’re not on Twitter, or not looking at trends on Twitter, now you know lol.

So what’s ironic, is that as a past vegetarian, I will be writing this post. Keyword past. Please do not consider me a trader vegetarians, but recently I have been loving hot dogs and burgers. Predominately burgers.

McDonald’s burgers, grill em at home burgers, Steak n Shake, Shake Shack, you name it. I’ve tried them all since giving up being a vegetarian and it seems unlikely at this point that I will stop.

Burgers are satisfying in a weird way. Not that tofu is not satisfying. Veggie burgers are tasty and good. But veggie burgers are so light that they sometimes leave you wanting a little more.

This is not me shooting down being a vegetarian. If you don’t like beef or burgers (or meat in general) more power to you. But some people just cannot give it allΒ up. I didn’t eat beef for at least five years and gave up meat entirely for about two or three years. Chicken is just chicken but when I tried a burger again, I knew in my mind I would not be able to stop.

Maybe I’ll celebrate National Burger Day by eating one, who knows?

If you don’t eat beef, try a turkey burger. Or if you don’t eat meat at all, try a veggie burger.

Everyone can celebrate National Burger Day, don’t just leave it for the meat eaters lol.
