Satisfy the sweet tooth on Nougat Day and declare it a day for not counting calories! Heck, satisfy a whole mouth of sweet teeth and smile all the way through bites of the delicious mixture.
Celebrate the ode to nougat by opening those all-time favorite candy bars that fill with the tasty confectionary. A mixture of honey, sugar, nuts and more, nougat has never been more deserving of its own day.
The 3 Musketeers and Baby Ruth bars are share-worthy choices; put them on a platter and hand them out to hungry neighbors. Join in the sugar high too, as any good neighbor would do. Downing one or two of the nougat-filled chocolate bars has a sweetness written all over it. Oh, come on, who wants to miss a calorie-free day?!
Any Charleston Chew fan sings the praises of this day – well, after the swallowing the nougat first! Sweet days are here, sweet days are here.

It’s not just Popeye who will be strong to the finish on Spinach Day, but everyone who chooses to celebrate the day by consuming some of this leafy green plant will get to join in the health benefits as well!
Packed with nutrients such as Iron, Vitamin A and Calcium, spinach is known for being a healthy part of a balanced diet – but do we eat enough of it? If not, why not try a new recipe on Spinach Day? Sauté it in olive oil and a little bit of garlic – or what about a baby spinach salad with mozzarella cheese, avocado slices and crispy bacon crumbled on top? Delicious!
You can purée spinach up and hide it in soups and pizza sauces for the finicky eaters in your life who might not eat it straight up. So, no excuses – get your leafy greens down you on Spinach Day!
