Apr 5, 2013 —  These days, the stereotypical American couch potato is a dying breed. With the growing health craze, Americans have traded the sofa and chips for the gym and juice bar. But with all that health food and summer dieting, sometimes it’s nice to ease off your strict regiment with a bit of indulgence. All across America, food events and festivals feature a wide range of flavors sure to unleash your inner glutton.

In Los Angeles, cheese lovers fill up on gooey goodness at the Grilled Cheese Invitational. Over in the Midwest culinary capital of Chicago, bacon lovers flock to festivals that feature everything from bacon ice cream to bacon vodka.

Up in Beantown, Boston’s iconic breweries unite with the region’s best bacon dishes at the Boston Bacon and Beer Festival for a match made in health hell sure to send your taste buds to heaven. Meanwhile in NYC, the Stinky Cheese Festival brings out the most pungent, flavorful curds this side of the Atlantic.

So if all those wheatgrass shots have got you feeling like a health nut, give your mouth a break from the bland with something sinfully delicious.
