I get horrendous pms and it's just kicked in today sad, feeling really blue, sluggish and crampy. The ONLY thing I'm looking forward to is a little munch and the telly this evening when DD has gone to bed!

I know exercise and healthy diet would probably be much more beneficial for my mood and pain but please, share with me your favourite comfort foods for this time of month!

Oohhh, macaroni cheese - good shout!

Pasta & cheesy sauce. (For a really quick cheese sauce just melt half a tub of Philadelphia cheese with a splash or two of milk, add ready grated cheese & chuck over cooked pasta). That's my top comfort meal
Or mashed potatoes & butter. Aunt Bessie's will do at a push.
Anything bland & starchy really. All the stuff that's bad for you.

Oh cheese and chocolate!!

I'm feeling better already grin
I'm leaving guilt at the door!

Mine is mashed potato with gravy on, probably with a steak and ale pie and some token veg.

Loads of hot buttered toast can do at a pinch.

Shreddies with gold top milk, cheese, crisps.

LadySybilLikesCake Wed 09-Jul-14 14:00:34

Cheesy mash and beans. Yum.

MaxPepsi Wed 09-Jul-14 14:00:46

Non period comfort food is Mash with fried eggs.

It is wondrous stuff and always makes everything right in the world.

Period comfort food just needs to be food, any type of food will do, but it must involve chocolate somewhere!!

Needadvice5 Wed 09-Jul-14 14:01:45

mashed potatoes with lots of butter and pepper x

HelpMeGetOutOfHere Wed 09-Jul-14 14:02:59

cheese and potato pie (that's what my mum called it, but its just mashed potato with fried onions and cheese mixed in, then cheese sprinkled on top and grilled)
macaroni cheese
m&s shepherds pie
Chinese takeaway

I'm craving all of those right now, shame I've decided to kick that last 10lbs and am on a health kick.

Irn Bru.

It's disgusting, but if you drink it really fast, when it's really cold, and try to think about something else... it's strangely addictive. grin

SpottyTits Wed 09-Jul-14 14:08:26

Fried mash with bacon, beans and bread and butter.

Leviticus Wed 09-Jul-14 14:09:17
