As women, our culture is pervasive with practically impossible physical and emotional stereotypes that we must fulfill–or else. Or else we get caught up in the never-ending game of diets (even if we are perfectly healthy) and superfluous beautification.

All around us we see stick-thin models and actresses who are endlessly tweaked, trained, airbrushed and photo-shopped to utter perfection. It drives even the most secure of us to body image insecurities. In turn, food becomes the enemy.

Here’s the thing: Food is not the enemy. Food–whether eaten for nutrition or for pleasure–is necessary sustenance to keep our hair, skin, bodies, and psyches healthy.

In a world full of kale shakes and gluten-free organic nut bars, sometimes it’s nice to just dig into a steak, suck down a martini, and enjoy yourself. The key to moderation is…moderation. Not outright sacrifice. Accordingly,  here are Eight Of Our Favorite Celebrity Femmes That Also Love To Eat.

8. Lea Michelle

“I love food, I love to eat. I can’t go on diets. I have to do a lot of exercise…I’m always playing with different flavors. If I remember a phenomenal meal I had in a country, I think of its ingredients, and how I can make it in my own kitchen.”

6. Katy Perry

“If I didn’t work out as hard as I do, I’d be really thick. That’s also hard, because I love to eat. But it’s about wanting to take care of myself, as opposed to wanting to look a certain way. I don’t really ever stand on a scale”

“I’m a dessert freak. I looove peach cobbler…Have a cheat day – Whoo! Sunday’s ‘Cheat Day.’ I’m gonna have my peach cobbler! – then it’s exciting, and you really enjoy it.”

4. Taylor Swift

“I really like reading like Barefoot Contessa cookbooks, and you know when you go into the stores and there’s just like How to Make Great Sandwiches, and you’re like who buys those?  I buy those!

“Like a book of 100 Ways to Make Cupcakes … I buy that.  I love that…So basically anything that I can kind of get from a cookbook and then improvise with.  Like I’ll get the basic recipe from a cookbook and get the idea for it and then I’ll just be like, ‘oh, I wonder what would happen if I add this to it.”

3. Keira Knightly

“I’m a big foodie. In my family life, all good things revolve around the dinner table. My mum’s cooking is great. We have big dinners, and big everything. There’s nothing like a really good chip, a really crunchy, good chip. And I love pasta. I make Bolognese with tons and tons of Parmesan cheese.”

“God knows I love to eat…By the time we would cut [On the ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ set] I’d be done with an entire pizza or a whole bowl of pasta…The take would just go on and on and I’d love it.”
