When you have had a hard day and a warm bath does not help, you do what you know best- you eat! Here is a list of the top 10 comfort foods which can help you stay in a better mood all through the day.
1. Mac and Cheese
Macaroni and Cheese is easy to make (all you have to do is heat the noodles and add the powdered cheese) and it will make you feel better almost instantly. They are addictive and you will want to keep shoveling the yummy mixture into your mouth till the exhaustion or sadness subsides!
Chocolate is undoubtedly the best comfort food. The chemicals that it releases into your brain will get rid of any trace of sadness, depression, guilt or loneliness. The tiny problem here is that there is no end to it! No matter how much you eat- you will always want more!
As they say, chicken soup goes straight to the soul and fixes all the glitches and problems! What’s more, it’s healthy and will fill you up. Therefore, if you are tired after a long grueling day at work, boil some homemade chicken soup and slurp your troubles away!
A pint of ice-cream to dig into along with a best-friend by your side is the best combination for an evening after a long day. Add some chocolate sauce, sprinkles and walnuts and you’re good to go!
Doritos are orange-flavored, spicy and delicious! As is true with any other item of junk food, it is fairly easy to forget how much one has eaten. Hence, if you are very sad, eat half a bag and if you need a friend but none of them are free- eat the whole bag!
Popcorn takes about 3 minutes to make and is the perfect comfort snack! So, if you pop some popcorn, lie in bed with a good book and soft music, you will practically feel the stress dissolve into nothingness.
The best part about cereal is that you can eat it anytime- early morning, early afternoon or even 11 at night! Out of every comfort food listed here, it is probably the healthiest. However, chances are you will get hungry again after a short period of time.
8. Mashed Potatoes
There are many ways of preparing mashed potatoes- you can make them salty, warm or buttery- the choice is yours. The thickness will go through your body and make you feel better after the first bite. Combine this snack with a big glass of chocolate milk and you will be smiling in no time.
9. Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Grilled cheese sandwiches are warm, buttery and cheesy- the perfect blend for a bad day. As soon as you bite into the toasty goodness, you will forget what was bothering you and head straight to the kitchen to make some more! Cheese sandwiches go best with French fries or potato wedges. If you buy these at the local department store, all you will need to do is fry them up and munch on them for the rest of the evening!
10. Pizza or Hamburgers
If you are feeling particularly blue, pick up the phone and order a large pizza with all your favorite toppings. If pizzas are not your thing, you can always go for a Hamburger with a large portion of French fries!
