Winter is coming, the days are getting shorter, and depression sets in. If the urge to hide under your duvet arises, it is essential to take care of yourself, and to concoct good gourmet dishes. Here are 15 cocooning recipes to gain strength while having fun.
“The pleasure is on the plate!”. With this sentence, everything is said: it is possible to brighten up your day and easily find happiness in your meals. That’s why it’s important to always keep some treats in your diet, especially on down days. It has also been proven that certain foods have an influence on morale and the quality of mental well-being. This is why it is necessary to vary the ingredients that sprinkle the dishes throughout the week. A balanced diet, devoid of a maximum of processed products, can limit the risk of blues.
We don’t hesitate to indulge ourselves with regressive or cocooning dishes. But be careful: if the desire to eat sweet or fatty recipes is felt (long live cheese and cakes!), we favor light and low-calorie foods. In addition, we focus on hot products, such as soups, which warm the body and the spirit.
In any case, it is important to always have fun in the kitchen, and to distil gluttony in each of your dishes. Here is a selection of gourmet recipes, both tasty and healthy, to bring happiness on days when the blues set in.
