3 Easy, Awesome, and Lazy Ways to Stay Warm this Winter

By Debra Liu

It’s December, which means a few things are inevitable: snow (maybe even a blizzard), the holidays (yes, gifts!), New Year’s (oh the resolutions) and freezing our butts off (not so fun). Unfortunately, the first three things are completely out of our control, but thankfully, we CAN help you prevent frostbite. Here are some of FoodtoEat’s tricks for staying warm and cozy this winter:

(1) Order in food from your favorite restaurants

The great thing about ordering food delivered to your door is that you don’t have to go outside. The less time you spend outside, the warmer you’ll be. We’re GENIUSES. Also, it’s COLD outside and it might be snowing, which makes it dangerous to travel. When you order your food, you’ll stay warm, save travel time and save money (no 20% tip)!

(2) Eat hot foods and drink hot beverages.

Seriously, any food that has been heated…like noodle soup. Yogurt doesn’t count. Neither does cold pizza. Now, if you ordered a piping hot pizza with ooey gooey melted cheese, that would do the trick! Trust me, noodle soup like pho usually hits the spot. Hot foods will warm you right up and also, make your stomach super happy.

(3) Skip food truck lines by pre-ordering online first with FoodtoEat

The saddest, more depressing thing about winter is having to wait in line for food at your favorite food truck, all the while, feeling your limbs go numb from the cold. Well, lucky you, if you order online first through FoodtoEat, you can skip the line and pick up your food when you want it. No hassle, no waiting, and most importantly, no freezing. #SkipTheLine

If you stick to these three super easy ways to stay warm, you’ll definitely avoid the ice, ice, baby.

Zombie Apocalypse Themed Food Truck Hits DC

A new food truck that launched in Washington D.C. is the first documents zombie apocalypse themed food truck. The truck is called Pho Junkies, and serves Vietnamese pho soup. Created by Virginia natives Woo Lee and Luan Vo, the two friends decided to start their own food truck to emulate Lee’s parents’ Vietnamese restaurant. After struggling to find employment after graduation, creating a food truck seemed like the perfect decision.

The zombie themes of the truck originates from Lee and Vo’s obsession with zombies while growing up, and obsession that they have carried into adult life. The duo declared that they didn’t just want to paint a truck a bright color and slap a name on it. Instead they designed the truck to be a perfect zombie killing machine by painting blood spatter, armored panels and fire-blasting exhaust pipes. The truck was modeled after the zombie-killing vehicle featured in the end of Dawn of the Dead, though the truck in the film also had chainsaws, machine guns and barbed wire.

The truck has many nods to popular zombie culture as well, reflecting the owners’ current interests in zombie fanfare such as AMC’s The Walking Dead and the Resident Evil video games. The truck has several shout-outs to modern zombie culture, with a sticker saying “I believe in Rick Grimes”, a main protagonist in The Walking Dead. The truck also features an umbrella logo meant to symbolize the evil Umbrella Corporation in the resident Evil franchise.

Lee and Vo work hard to recreate the zombie feel at Pho Junkies by the way they interact with their consumers. A look at their Twitter shows how they call customers “survivors” and use clever slogans to convince consumers they really are eating from a zombie truck. In addition to pho, the truck offers several side order options.
