The problem with comfort food
An uncomfortable place to be
Being kind with yourself
e.g. casseroles, soups, porridge, well cooked brown rice risottos, sauce-rich bakes etc.
e.g. slow-cooked foods and mild spices in winter, salads in summer
i.e. by being hydrating (see 1.);
and/or by containing anti-inflammatory ingredients such as turmeric, ginger, parsley, mint, soaked chia seeds
e.g. intolerances, allergies
i.e. made with simple, wholesome ingredients
Figuring out your comfortable foods
For most, this calms down your nervous system’s stress responses, and creates a sense of ease and contentment.
