Comfort Food: With Mac & Cheese, You’re Never Alone

Comfort Food:
With Mac & Cheese, You’re Never Alone

Show Notes

Hunger makes us reach for the food that provides us with what we need at that moment. But there are different types of hunger and our brain and our stomach tell us that there are needs that must be filled by connections with people and not just our favourite comfort food. A new study shows that even one day of being alone makes our brain respond as if we’ve been fasting. Food feeds us and fills us up, as does connections.
