When you go out for a meal and your friend/lover/family's food looks SO AWESOME you get incredibly jealous and stare at it all night/start stealing some it. Esp. if you can't decide what you want to eat or are on a diet.
You: Oh man that looks like an awesome steak!
Friend: Well you shouldn't have ordered salad then...
You: Damn food envy.

Get the food envy mug.
A German expression (Futterneid) describing the behaviour of persons who hoard food or are unwilling to share food with others.
Didn’t your brother just take that platter of food to his room?

Yes, but I rescued it. I might want to eat some more later. It’s my food envy.
