Christmas 2017: The 5 Different Types Of Foodies Spotted During Holidays
  • Holiday Season is about to begin and everyone's the party mode.
  • Foodies are the most enthusiastic participants of holiday festivities.
  • Not all foodies are alike.
It is almost Christmas and excitement is in the air! Everyone is in the party mode and if you're anything like us, you'd also be itching to start celebrating another trip around the Sun. Foodies are the most enthusiastic participants of the festivities that usually involve lots of sinful goodies, delicious dishes and drinks. But not all foodies are alike. Some love to indulge their most gluttonous selves during this time, while some others are more conscientious and try to control their diets (often unsuccessfully).

Here are the 5 different types of foodies you'll spot during the holidays:

The devil-may-care foodies

These foodies live for the moment and eat like there's no tomorrow. They plan their day according to which feasts they're going to attend and are always hovering around the food table at every party. They don't care about their waistlines or the disapproving stares they receive from family and friends, and you will find them reaching for one piece of cake after another!

The vegan foodies

These are the cruelty-free food lovers that use holidays as an opportunity to promote their own dairy-free gluten-free lifestyles. They'll be spotted discussing how much vegan foods have changed their life, much to the irritation of meat lovers. They're the ones who demand that every party food menu include vegan dishes and will complain if that happens to not be the case. They're seen appreciating every vegan dish loudly at every party, in the hope that others change tracks and adopt veganism too.

The 'everything homemade' foodies

These are the ones trawling every single cooking magazine and website around holidays. You'll see them searching for the most difficult-to-cook and sophisticated food recipes, to test their cooking skills. They're adventurous and unabashedly make others suffer by forcing them to taste what they've cooked, no matter how horrible the finished product looks!

These are the kinds that are always trying out trendy foods and hashtaging them on Instagram and Facebook. They promote the most of the fusion foods and will post 'cool' pictures on social media. We all know these types of foodies, and are probably guilty of being them at one point or another.

The Diet Conscious Foodies


These are the one that are still struggling to fulfill their 'New Year's weight loss resolution' for the previous year. They can't help themselves from bingeing on holiday treats, but still fool themselves into thinking that they can 'balance it out' by eating a salad once a day. They're always looking hungry at parties and stare gloomily at guests enjoying their dinner, as they starve to compensate for their 'heavy' lunches. They're the same ones that sneak out from their beds at night and attack the holiday leftovers like hungry nocturnal beasts.
