Time Out (Alex)

Don't fend off the blues with "comfort food"

Mac 'n' cheese won't comfort you any better than chicken and broccoli, a University of Minnesota study found. Students were shown sad film clips then fed either comfort foods or food they liked but didn't consider "comforting." Afterward, all subjects--no matter what they'd eaten--felt better once a few minutes had passed.

Yes, I've done that, and no it does not work!

Comfort food last night -- green beans in butter with a dash of garlic. Boy have I changed!

  Gwen Replied:

But...we all have different foods that we think are comforting!
