Fall semester finals week is a time to throw all diet restrictions out the window and eat whatever makes you feel better about grades, essays and sinister teachers. TREAT YO’ SELF. Here are 10 comfort foods that will help you get through finals week:
Waffles with syrup, butter, chocolate chips, blueberries, whipped cream, sprinkles, jam, anything and everything that your heart desires. Waffles for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks. Waffles make your heart happy.
2. Macaroni and Cheese
The cheesier, the better. Nothing beats a bottomless bowl of mac ‘n’ cheese after a defeating day.
3. Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese
Spice up your soup with basil and your grilled cheese with bacon, and you’ve got a world-class, feel-good meal.
4. Chicken Nuggets
5. Chicken Noodle Soup
Chicken noodle soup is easy to make, and a phone call to mom for a recipe will achieve two goals. First, it will ease your mind and remind you that the world won’t end if you did poorly on an exam. Secondly, if she can’t be there to make your soup, she can at least be there indirectly to guide you through it.
Preach it! Use April Ludgate’s rhetoric and eat pizza to empower yourself.
7. Spaghetti and Meatballs
Bomb a final? Wallow in a giant bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. It will undeniably make you feel better. Especially if you pair it with a extra-large wine bottles.
8. Chinese Take-Out
Delivery. Delicious. Cheap. Easy. Greasy. Large Quantity. These words are music to a poor, beaten-down college student.
9. Giant Burrito
The bigger, the better. Shoot for something the size of your forearm. Add extra cheese and guacamole.
10. Reddi-Whip from a can
Have no shame. Down that whole can. You deserve it.
