Revealing what’s good
and bad in the art of stress eating
By: May Fernanda R. Escobin
Stress eating is now as normal as
breathing. We normally do this because we believe in the fact that food
provides our bodies with fuel and feed our emotional need. For example, you are
overwhelmed with school works, you prefer to eat chocolates or drink plenty of
coffee and donut on your favorite coffee shop. Or, you were not really hungry
but because you need to feel happy, you buy ice cream and cake. That shows the
inconspicuous significance of food in our lives, especially on the emotional
quotient of a human being. You are sometimes eating not because you are hungry,
but because you need something which will make you stay awake or, will feel
satisfaction while doing a stressful work. This leads to overeating or binge
eating disorder. This will lead to stress eating. It’s true that people who
binge often do so to numb emotions such as upsetting, painful, or sad feelings.
But most people who turn to food because of how they’re feeling do not have binge eating disorder.
“We all have our comfort foods,”
says Randy Flanery, PhD, program director for Webster Wellness Professionals in
St. Louis, MO.
If you binge, you eat much more than
others would in similar situations. Those with this disorder also feel like
they have no control over their eating during a binge. They usually feel very
upset, guilty, or shameful about their eating. If that sounds like you, see
a mental health expert
for proper diagnosis and treatment
But what are the real signs of stress
Something stressful happens, and you immediately
want to eat.True hunger isn’t affected
by things like getting into a fight with your spouse or having a bad day at
An overwhelming urge to eat comes on suddenly. Real, physical hunger builds up slowly.
You shouldn’t go from “fine” to “starving” in an instant.
You only desire one particular food. When you're hungry, you
might have a but you know other options would be OK. If you’d only be satisfied
by chips or ice cream, assume the urge to eat is emotional.
It is true that anxiety and stress lead
us to find the comfort food we desire. It has no comparison with people
drinking alcohol when stressed, it turns out to be food because they do not
know how to control their emotions, as they do not know how to control the way
they would convert emotions or treat the emotions.
As I have said earlier, stress eating
becomes normal only when people know the right definition of it. Not over
powering the emotions, people should know the limit of how stress eating could
ease the pain or stress for a short period of time only and not to abuse its
use. Eating is not a bad habit unless people are aware of the results that
might happen if have been abused.
Conversion of unwanted emotions such as
stress could be done in so many ways not only eating, but
since it is the most efficient and relaxing way to do, one should be suggested
all the time and it is to Eat
Mindfully. ”Emotional eaters feel as if they’re not in control, but the
wonderful thing about mindful eating is that when you’ve mastered it, you feel
you are in control - and if you keep practicing, you’ll be in control.“
8 Unexpected Places to Eat King Cake in NOLA This Carnival Season
Come one, come all. Festival season is upon us and we all know what that means – the annual rise of the infamous king cake. When most of us think of this classic Mardi Gras treat, our minds jump straight to the traditional cinnamon brioche topped with green, purple and gold icing; however, if you explore NOLA, a whole new world of king cake surprises awaits you.
As restaurants and bakeries put their own creative twist on this festival season delicacy, it makes you wonder what really even counts as king cake anymore. On the other hand, though, if it tastes, smells, or even resembles king cake, who really cares?
The traditional king cake has officially been transformed into a donut by the help of District Donuts Sliders Brew. This coffee and donut shop has created a cinnamon-cardamom cream cheese-filled donut topped with carnival-colored frosting and orange zest to give it that zippy acidic kick.
The modern upscale New Orleans restaurant Emeril’s has found a way to turn king cake into monkey bread. Flavors change weekly and include bananas foster, pralines ‘n cream, cafe brulot, brand milk punch, and chocolate strawberry. You can’t go wrong no matter what week you go, but be sure to stop in before this limited edition dessert is no longer offered.
The pastry-like traditional king cake dessert takes a new turn, thanks to the help of Coquette, which has successfully created a delectable king cake sundae. It’s hard to beat fried brioche balls with carnival colored sugar accompanied by scoops of strawberry, cinnamon, and cream cheese ice cream.
Would you ever picture king cake in macaroon form? Neither would I, but it actually exists. Be sure to stop by Sucré where they are making their signature macaroons in the classic carnival colors of purple, green, and gold.
If you attended King Cake Festival last year at the Super Dome, there was no way you could have missed the one and only king cake burger. Sweet, yet savory, this angus brisket burger topped with cheddar cheese on a purple, green and gold brioche bun topped with icing is a must-have. Never will you be able to taste something like this anywhere else but the Food Drunk Food Truck.
Just when you thought king cake couldn’t get any crazier, Toast breaks out a king cake crepe that is sweet, sugary heaven in dough form. This dessert served for brunch is a light, airy treat stuffed with a classic cinnamon filling surrounded by maple syrup and Mardi Gras-colored sprinkles.
Charcoals Gourmet Burger Bar took the king cake milkshake to a whole new level. Rather than using the real rich flavors of the king cake itself, they have incorporated king cake-flavored vodka into their ice cream-rich dessert. There’s nothing better than a nice buzz and the sweet taste of king cake.
Rivista has found a way to infuse the sweet flavors of king cake into a latte. This is certainly a go-to on a cold day during the festival season.
Just because my list stops here, doesn’t mean there aren’t dozens of other king cake delights waiting to be discovered. In the upcoming weeks, attend the annual King Cake Festival on January 31 and discover even more twists on the original New Orleans dessert.
