While relaxing at home, one of my favorite things to do is indulge in comfort food and comfort drinks.
While it may not always be possible to cook while you're trying to relax, I have included some quick and easy recipes that can be kept frozen until you need them...
If you're interested in learning more on how psychology affects our selection of comfort food, make sure to read these psychological articles on food.
Depending on your mood, sometimes satisfying a little craving will provide enough satisfaction to allow your mind to relax a little.
Here are my suggestions:
If you like to cook and if you have room in your freezer, it's a great idea to prepare some comfort food ahead of time.
While I do not suggest that you go on a binge when you get depressed, one glass of red wine can do wonders when you try to unwind at the end of the day. Similarly, a cool beer in the summer might help alleviate some stress when the day is over.
For the body hug, I recommend Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Premium Hot Cocoa Mix or one of the many excellent teas on the market.
My favorite supplier is Adagio Teas, the most popular destination for tea online, with superb customer-service marks and delicious teas!
They ship to the US and Canada and they have a large selection of teas, which includes some great tea starter kits and amazingly cool tea pots. I recommend them for all new and old tea lovers, and even for those who have yet to discover the benefits of tea.
Go ahead and check them out for yourself! You'll be surprised to see how affordable their products are! Now comfort food and drinks do not have to make you feel guilty...
And how about cold comfort drinks? Do your health and tastebuds a favor with these tasty smoothies recipes, juice recipes and shake recipes.
