21 Dream Food Pyramids That Will Truly Inspire You

If a pyramid made of pasta is wrong, then I don't wanna be right.

We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to describe their dream food pyramids.

And btw, a dream food pyramid is how you wish you could structure your diet in a magical world where french fries are packed with nutrients and food with a ton of sugar isn't all that big of a deal.

Here's what they came up with:

2. This savory dream come true:

"My dream food pyramid:

1st: Endless supplies of cheese pizza

2nd: Flamin' Hot Cheetos

3rd: Chicken dumplings

4th: Hot spicy chicken wings

5th: Coca-Cola

6th: Ramen noodles"



8. This bi-level beauty that manages to capture the best things in life:

"The bottom would consist of pizza, chocolate chip pancakes, and cereal. The rest of it? Ice cream, Jolly Ranchers, watermelon, bagels, and peanut butter."


11. This impressively nutrient-dense collection of goodies:

Lixia Guo / BuzzFeed News

"My five-layer pyramid — from bottom to top — would consist of: Sweet potato in every way, shape, and form; all the vegetables I love, like lotus root, kimchi, endive, and Brussels sprouts; fatty protein, including tuna steak and crispy chicken; Pasta Amatriciana <3; and at the top, all the dairy items (ice cream, cheez, thick-ass Greek yogurt) my body hates and my taste buds love."



12. This healthy, caffeine-forward vegan pyramid:

"My food pyramid would be vegan. Loads of fruit and veggies, nuts, and dried fruit, homemade bread and cakes, and of course coffee, because without it my life would crumble."



19. This Ron Swanson-inspired pyramid:

"Coffee base; I run on skinny lattes, steak/sushi, breakfast foods (all of them), peanut butter and bananas, and a tiny veggie top."

21. And this delightful mix:

"Bottom level: all the sushi, next level: fritattas and everything that goes in them,

next level: all the yummy stuff that grows on trees, next level: pickled everything, top of pyramid: breads and sweets."
