Everyone loves food. Looking at it. Smelling it. Taking pictures of it. Making it. Eating it. And of course, talking about it!

So when fellow blogger, Edel from the Pacemaker blog, asked us to participate in a 3-2-1 Quote Me Challenge, we were all in. It’s a fun way to share quotes that we love.

The guidelines of the challenge are that 1 person nominates 3 others to share 2 quotes.  As soon as I started brainstorming food quotes I wanted to use, I quickly realized there was no way I could pick only two!

So I present to you….

10 Food Quotes That Will Get You Thinking … And Hungry!


Food Quote #1  

“Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.”
Ernestine Ulmer

The older I get, the more I realize this is true. Do the things that make you happy!

Food Quote #2

“Sometimes me think, ‘What is Friend?’ and then me say, ‘Friend is someone to share the last cookie with.'”
– Cookie Monster

Is there someone you’d like to share a cookie with that you haven’t spoken to in a while? Maybe today is the day to give them a call.

Food Quote #3

“Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.”
-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Hmmmm. I’d love to hear what he would have said about me after looking at our Instagram feed.

Food Quote #4

“If you’re afraid of butter, use cream.”
– Julia Child

Classic Julia. Enough said!


Food Quote #5

“A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.”
– Barbara Johnson

This is sound logic indeed. And because life too is about balance, maybe tomorrow I’ll put a carrot in each hand. But for today … we eat cookies!


Food Quote #6

“After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relatives.”
– Oscar Wilde

How true is this?! A good dinner does tend to settle people down. Think about Thanksgiving. After dinner, you magically lose the will to argue when you’re stuffed and in a turkey coma!



Food Quote #7

“Food is symbolic of love when words are inadequate.”
– Alan D. Wolfelt

This hits home for me. If I like you, my first instinct is to bake you a cake! A little off topic, but it reminds me of an interesting book I read. It’s called The 5 Love Languages. Hard to believe, but some people won’t want the cake I want to bake for them. This book explains why!

Food Quote #8

“Popcorn for breakfast! Why not? It’s a grain. It’s like, like, grits, but with high self-esteem.”
– James Patterson

This got me thinking how weird it is that we designate certain foods appropriate to eat at certain times. Next time my daughter wants mac and cheese for breakfast, I’m going to say yes!

Food Quote #9

“Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like.”
– Mark Twain

I’m pretty sure I have mastered this key to success. Now if I can just figure out the other part of the secret and I’ll be a millionaire!

Food Quote #10

“You can’t just eat good food. You’ve got to talk about it too.
And you’ve got to talk about it to somebody who understands that kind of food.”

– Kurt Vonnegut

This is exactly why we started The Three Snackateers blog. We’re happy you’re here in our community of snack lovers. Snack on, Snackers!
