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:

1. This heavenly mix of fast food and snacks, to be washed down with flavored booze:

"Copious amounts of Fireball, cheeseburgers, tacos, mini muffins, hot fries, and Slim Jims."—kdclives
