Fave comfort food? (possible TW)

AislingDMAislingDM Posts: 326 Moderator
Just wanted to see if anyone has any meals/snacks or anything that bring them particular joy :) I understand that eating and food can be a deeply sensitive topic, so please do not feel pressured to respond to this if you do not want, I do not want this question to be confused with emotional eating, but I know life is rarely this simple and sometimes comforting things can become mentally unhealthy for us <3 Please take care when replying here x

    Chicken wings!!! Doesn't matter how bad I'm feeling eating some chicken wings always helps. :mrgreen: No specific type either they're all good but my personal favourite is the salt and pepper wings my regular Chinese food place does, they're delish! :yum:

    My mum's spaghetti. Even when I feel sick, I'd love to have it, when I feel sick I don't feel like having anything except that. The way she makes it is just scrumptious.

    Out of all the food in the world, it has to be my mum's pancakes. Especially with Nutella. <3<3<3

    Haha I love that you especially love the chicken wings at your regular Chinese restaurant because then you know you can always find some modicum of peace! @Riley

    So true @larafaraj not too sure why people hate on mint so much, I think it's a wonderful contrast with chocolate and vanilla =)

    That's genuinely so beautiful to hear @zaynab_5 !! Kind of like you have a surefire way to improve your feelings of sickness as long as your mum can make some spaghetti <3 Do you reckon it helps you feel less sick because you know that your mum is the one who made it?

    Bread is abso too accurate lol @lovemimoon , a warm baguette with butter and cheese is an eternal winner !! OOh pancakes, which kind? (like crepes or thicker ones?)

    @tkdog defo agree, plus with so many flavours you can even try to suit whatever mood you're in. I find simple vanilla great for physical illness and more interesting flavours fun for when I am mentally low!!!!!!

    I think chocolate. Chocolate literally can cure any kind of problem mann.
    The dark is the only place I feel like I belong...

    Definitely agree with @LorryTruck
    Chocolate cake, however, is another topic.

    YEEEEEESS @AislingDM Now you're talking my language! :confounded::joy: Especially with soup! That's a good combo! (And hot chocolate ahem) Ooh, definitely a crepes fan. Thick pancakes are, uh... Um. Interesting.

    Yes definitely the fact that my mum made it is so comforting. She makes it so deliciously in a way that even if you don't feel like eating, you eat it anyways because it tastes real good!

    Soup and garlic bread when I’m not well! Love dipping the bread in the soup 😋

    I LOVE how many people are loving up pasta and bread, so simple yet so tasty and delish !!! It's so cool to see why these foods bring you all comfort too and in different ways. Like I love butter pasta after being out the night before - great for a hangover, but soup on a cold sniffly winter day is perfect too <3
