Dear Malayalis, all of you must’ve gone through a harsh breakup. It’s a reminder that there’s more to life than WhatsApp conversations, ice-cream dates, after-tutions shenanigans, and late-night calls. After all, breakups can leave you with a feeling of relentlessness, but you’ll become a better (strong) person eventually. That said, nothing is going to make you feel good when you’ve just broken up, including your best-friend’s advice to get laid. But, what might just do the trick is food – Because good food equals good mood. It’s scientifically proven, my friend.
When it comes to romance and breakups, we’re experts at it. We’d suggest that you take our advice seriously so take a look at 10 foods that can help you feel good after a breakup.
Chocolate (Gooey) Cake
Chocolate is a sin. But, as the devil would say, “Who cares, right?”. Hey, you can have all the chocolates you want. And by the time you’re over the girl or guy you’ve been with, you won’t even regret eating 10 bars of chocolate every day. What would make things better is if you ate a chocolate fudge cake – the ones with the glazed chocolate upper layer. Now, that’s how you show the middle finger to the breakup god.
Parotta & Beef
Don’t spend your time brooding over what your ex did. Instead, invest all that negative energy into mixing the parotta into the beef curry. Eat it and don’t forget to lick your fingers after. We bet your ex- girlfriend or boyfriend wasn’t as good as this parotta & beef. See, didn’t we tell you? Food solves everything!
Breakups may also result in the loss of appetite. Don’t worry, we’ve got the perfect food solution to that. Smoothies practically requires no effort to make and drink. But, it’ll sure as hell make your tummy and heart happy. After which, you won’t even think about your ex because you’ll be more concerned about what to have next.
The secret to happiness? Chaaya! Believe it or not, Chaaya has breakup curing ingredients in it. It may not get your girl or guy back, but it will definitely make you feel at peace. Thankfully, we’re all addicted to chaaya so getting hold of the hot cup of aromatic sweet concoction wouldn’t be a problem.
We’d recommend that you have coconut water daily. Not only is it good for your body, it’ll help you cool down your nerves. The second stage of getting over a breakup is usually anger and coconut water will calm you down. It can help you feel like you’re in the vicinity of your hometown. It’s therapeutic in a way.
Maggi is love. By now, you’ve already become the chef who has mastered the art of making the perfect hot maggi. If you’re up for it, you can experiment with cheese and veggies to make it seem like it’s a healthy food option. Maggi was there when your mother wasn’t around. It was there when you had midnight cravings. Now, it’s gonna be there for you since you’ve broken up. Maggi can make you smile, more than you ex-lover.
Vanilla Ice-cream and Cheetos
Grind cheetos into a powdery form and have it with vanilla ice-cream. Sure, it sounds weird, but the flavour will incredibly be the best thing that will play out in your mouth. If it’s hard to wrangle around the idea, ask your best friend to surprise you with it. And once you do take a bite of it, you’ll no longer go back to the originals.
Let’s take five seconds to appreciate the sweetened (magical) concoction of vermicelli or rice we all call Payasam. Now, that’s what we call the perfect dessert. Don’t you think it’s the perfect cure for all sorts of breakup? These days, you even get ready-made payasams. It’s a mouthwatering creamy treat we’re sure you won’t regret. Finishing off a sadhya with payasam sounds like the perfect lunch, dinner or breakfast option. Hey, you’ve broken up so you get to choose what to have when. No judgements passed.
These foods can get you from we-don’t-talk-anymore to somebody-I-used-to-know in few days or even hours. Never underestimate the power of food. It’s the only Superman or Wonder Woman you need in your life. Also, you’re welcome.
