Top 10 Comfort Foods for the Soul
We've all had those days...
Wether it'd be a bad break up, a bad day at work, or simply just a bad day. We all have that go-to food that helps us get right back up!
(like pooh eats honey)
Well, that at least makes the day just a tad bit better...
Here's the Top 10 Comfort Foods according to a survey by Ranker.com:
TBH, if you told me this 5 years ago I'd say this is absolute insanity. I strongly disliked grilled cheese for the longest time.
But something came over my heart when that gooey-goodness wrapped around my heart and was put at ease by it's close companion, tomato soup.
For those of you that are saying this is too vague, take it back. Any and ALL chocolate is comforting in a time of need. Chocolate actually contains tryptophan, which causes the brain to make serotonin aka high levels of elation aka instant happiness.
Ladies, you know what I'm talking about...
I've stood outside a Domino's pizza for it to open at 10 am before... just saying. It was a hard night okay?!
"Rachel, why the heck are you eating Domino's pizza when you're from Jersey?!"
This is definitely MY go-to comfort food. Why it's not number 1 is beyond me. All I know is, a great big hug from my buddies Ben & Jerry make the day a whole lot better.
