Foods That Get You Through the Winter

Most teens have a comfort food. From spicy hot meals to sweet ice cream their is at least one food that makes a teen feel safe and comfort while eating.

The definition of comfort food is food that provides consolation or a feeling of well-being, typically any with a high sugar or other carbohydrate content and associated with childhood or home cooking.

There is a scientific reason that most people have a comfort food. Foods that provide comfort can actually bring up happy memories, connect people in ways they wouldn’t be connected and celebrate cultural traditions. Most of the students at Wayne Hills

normally turn to comfort food when they had a bad day or feel very sad.

Junior Lexi Bonczek states, “My comfort food is definitely mac and cheese, it reminds me of my childhood. I go to it when I feel sad or there is something that is causing me stress.”

Another Senior from Wayne Hills Richie Graniere, and a junior Bella Mongello’s comfort food is also mac and cheese. Studies show that mac and cheese is the top comfort food in America, this makes sense because normally as a child you would eat mac and cheese at least once a week.

As you can see mac and cheese is a big hit in the comfort section it is hot, warm, and nostalgic. But not everyone turns to warm and cozy foods. Some people prefer baked good items.

Ainsley Phillips, a junior from Wayne Valley said “my comfort food would have to be Starbucks strawberry acai with a marshmallow dream bar, it makes me unstressed after my hard classes at school.”

Even though we mainly talked about teens, adults still have comfort food too. My father Michael Fernicola Sr! states, “My comfort food is chicken and rice, it is so warm and just reminds me of when I was little.”

From Mac and Cheese to a cold acai there will always be at least one food that gets you through.
