There’s No Such Thing As Comfort Food?
Do you pack snacks for work? I do. Boring ones like gluten-free granola and crisp breads since I'm going without wheat/gluten and soy for the time being. The kind of snacks that makes you fellas' eyes roll! But pizza would normally be my favorite comfort food. Do you have one? Mac and cheese? Peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream?
The number one comfort food is chocolate. But does it really comfort us?
The experts say the idea that food can comfort us is all in our heads, and that food actually does nothing to help us with feelings of anxiety, fear, sadness, or any of those unpleasantries. The study says negative moods dissipate on their own over time and there's nothing that we can really do to speed it up. But it's fun to try! With lots and lots of pudding.
Have a great day!
