Is losing weight, getting in shape, or following a healthier diet one of your new year’s resolution? Well it’s going to have to wait, because on Wednesday, January 2, is National Buffet Day.
While many prefer to celebrate this food holiday by visiting their favorite buffet style restaurant, others prefer to prepare a variety of food to serve at their house or workplace. If this sounds more like you, consider making a wide range of finger foods.
To avoid the guilt trip of betraying your new year’s resolution, keep in mind that standing in the buffet line and walking back and forth to your table for more food can count as a form of exercise. If saving money is also one of your resolutions, then National Buffet Day will fit your budget perfectly.
According to National Food Holiday Tour, the modern buffet originated in 18th Century France. The name came from the side table where food was served. The way in which the food was presented on this piece of furniture was referred to as a buffet.
