Hi, my name is Savannah and I’m an emotional eater. Admitting is the first step, right? I eat when I’m feeling happy, sad and every emotion in between. Post-secondary education is an emotional roller coaster, so I put together a list of foods to suit students’ most common moods. Failed your 2257 exam and now you’re not getting into Ivey? Don’t worry, I got you…
The most common feeling among post-secondary students. As a student, stress is so second-nature that feeling calm is almost eerie. In the past, when I’ve had five research papers due in the span of two days, (besides wanting to cry) I turn to my one true love, carbs!
Fresno’s has carbs. Lots of them. From sandwiches to pastas to desserts, this place is sure to have something to relieve your stress. What’s more calming than shovelling pasta into your mouth?
Perhaps as common a feeling as stress for many students–only for those over the age of 19, of course. My cure is to eat myself through my hangovers and if you’re one of those people who “don’t get hangovers,” then I hate you (lol jk, but seriously).
If you have an Instagram account, then you’ve probably seen everyone and their mom post pictures here, but trust me, it’s worth the hype. Name a more iconic duo than hangovers and brunch, I’ll wait. They have creative dishes, giant portions and….mimosas!
So you just found out Chad from Alpha Beta Phi is talking to you AND five other girls. You:
B) Binge eat to dull the pain
C) All of the above
If you answered C, then this is the place for you. When I cry, it’s always into a tub of ice cream, but that’s so cliché. The new trend is crying while drinking a milkshake topped with an entire dessert. Paradise Cream takes milkshakes to another level–literally. The presentation alone is enough to distract you from your heartbreak for at least 20 minutes, or five if you inhale food like me.
