These Memes Are All Of Us Struggling With Our Panzas Right Now

Tamales with a side of pan dulce is probably what we all had for breakfast every day during the past holiday season and I’m sure that some haven’t stopped ever since… or am I the only one?? ???? Either way, feeling a little extra thick is nothing to be worried about, especially if that means not skipping Taco Tuesday. So, to celebrate our panza and make us all feel a little less guilty about how much we LOOOVE food, here are 20 painfully funny memes that are relatable AF.

1. That feeling you get when summer is just around the corner and it’s time to face that post-holiday plump body you’re rocking.

Remember that if you don’t succeed there’s always next year…and the year after that..and the year after that.

2. So you start picturing yourself arriving at the beach.

But it isn’t your fault! You can definitely blame your abuelita for always cooking your favorites when you visit.

3. But then you remember your love for food is sooo big that you have even considered marrying it.

And I pronounce you Trompo & Wife… ????

4. Not to mention that your BFF is a terrible influence.

But it is not funny, especially since they are sporting more extra pounds than you ever have. #OpenlyBitter

7. Pressuring you to start eating right again… without any luck!

She didn’t exactly specify which kind of fruit…

8. And when you finally do, you feel a piece of your soul literally dying.

Like, how am I supposed to survive off of this??

But then you remember the whole empty calories thing and who even has time for a hangover anymore?

10. But after a few days, the result is always the same…

So then you start wondering how is it possible for people to diet without starving to death…

11. Then you begin to give up… until someone reminds you of those extra pounds.

Even when you didn’t ask

12. Making you wonder what’s more important, to eat right.

Priorities.

15. And some things are REALLY hard to let go…

Anything but that please. I beg of you!

16. Remember that if you don’t succeed… there’s always next year!

Persistence is the key to success, but discipline is how you fight that panza.

17. So don’t worry. Nothing happens overnight, you can start your road to recovery slowly.

Even a small amount of salad counts, right?

18. And until your food intake is back in the balance, love yourself because there is now more to love.

Words. ???????? To. ???????? Live. ???????? By. ????????

19. Plus, we all know that if they can’t love you now they don’t deserve you at your best.

Mountain Dew Margaritas Are Apparently A Thing At Red Lobster Now?

We’ve seen all kinds of takes on the timeless classic that is a Margarita. From frozen Margaritas to ones with cranberry juice and dashes of blue curaçao and twists of basil and ginger beer we’ve literally seen it all. Or so we thought.

Recently, Red Lobster announced that they’re doing a Mountain Dew-take on the beloved and salty tequila cocktail.

Red Lobster’s DEW-Garita promises to set you aglow.

The drink is the first official Mountain Dew cocktail and of course, it is bright lime green. While the cocktail’s recipe is being kept strictly under wraps, like everything at Red Lobster’s, it’s supposed to pair “perfectly” with Red Lobster’s iconic Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

“Red Lobster is thrilled to work with PepsiCo, not only because it has a great portfolio of brands, but specifically because of the food and beverage innovation possibilities,” Nelson Griffin,the Senior Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer at Red Lobster said in a statement about the drink.

Red Lobster’s DEW-Garita is due to debut at Red Lobster locations nationwide in September and by the end of 2020.

The Margarita is an iconic Mexican drink related to a drink called Rhe Daisy.

The classic Tequila sour cocktail is one of the most beloved cocktails in the world. According to Wine Enthusiast “One story claims that the drink was created in 1938, as Mexican restaurant owner Carlos (Danny) Herrera mixed it for gorgeous Ziegfeld showgirl Marjorie King. Supposedly, Tequila was the only alcohol that King would abide, so Herrera added lime juice and salt.”

To make your own classic Margarita check out this recipe below

Ingredients

  • Coarse salt
  • Lime wedge
  • 2 ounces white Tequila
  • 1 ounce orange liqueur
  • 1 ounce lime juice

Directions

Shake out coarse salt on a plate. Wet the rim of a glass by using the lime wedge. Press the rim of the glass in the plate of salt to coat. Add ice to the glass.

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the rest of the ingredients. Shake well, and pour into the prepared glass over ice.

Covid-19 has devastated millions of Americans with job loss. Unemployment skyrocketed as the federal government failed to create and execute a plan to combat the pandemic. El Pollo Loco is stepping up and giving our community a chance to keep business doors open and community members employed.

El Pollo Loco is giving Latina business owners in the greater Los Angeles area a lifeline in these uncertain times.

The Latino community is the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs and business owners in the U.S. According to a Stanford University study, Latino business owners grew 34 percent while every other demographic grew 1 percent over the last ten years.

However, Covid has changed things. Latina-owned business are some of the hardest hit and the sudden loss is impacting our community. According to the Pew Research Center, Latinas experienced a -21 percent change in small business ownership and jobs since the Covid downturn.

El Pollo Loco is offering $100,000 in grants to different Latina-owned businesses because of the pandemic.

The fast food chain has started a GoFundMe to keep the donations going. El Pollo Loco has already pledged $100,000 to help Latina small businesses and the GoFundMe promises to keep the donations flowing. For every $10,000 raised in the GoFundMe, El Pollo Loco will donate it to a Latina small business. The GoFundMe has raised over $100,000 at the time of this post.

#WeAllGrow Latina partnered with El Pollo Loco to give Latina business owners this lifeline.

#WeAllGrow Latina and El Pollo Loco are asking the Latino community to help find Latina small businesses that deserve the grants. Instead of making the decision themselves, #WeAllGrow Latina and El Pollo Loco want you to nominate your favorite Latina small business for the grant.

“This year has been unlike any other, leaving Latina-owned businesses disproportionately impacted,” Bernard Acoca, President and Chief Executive Officer of El Pollo Loco, said in a statement. “Given the critical role brands are expected to play during the pandemic and on the heels of Hispanic Heritage Month, we felt compelled to find a way to support the people and city we call home.”

In order to nominate a business, here is what you have to do.
