30 pounds of mac & cheese

So apparently Oprah did eat the whole wheel of cheese*. More specifically, she ate half an Olsen twin worth of mac & cheese when she started spiraling into depression years back. (Watch the interview snippet for more)

When it comes to comfort food, I’ve found that the best benefit comes from eating tasty goodness that has some nutritional qualities; ie, not plastic cheese-coated pasta.

Did you know brown rice is loaded with magnesium, a mineral which does wonders for ones mental health & anxiety levels? Or what about raising a sweat, upping your metabolism & getting some vitamin-boosting veggies into you with a chilli-laden stirfry?

If cheesy carbs assist you like nothing else to lift your mood or enable momentary wallowing though, try mashing potato (bonus points for using sweet potato!) with a whack of minced garlic, a good sprinkling of salt & pepper and a spoonful of ricotta – slightly cheesy goodtimes with a lot less regret than that which comes with 30 pounds of mac & cheese.

Honestly. Is that some kind of record? That’s a preschooler!

*Anchorman reference. You really should’ve known that already though. If you didn’t, get thee to blockbuster, stat.
