Eats to Beat Blue Monday from Chocolate Pizza to Cake-Pies

— January 18, 2011 — Lifestyle
Please don’t despair if Blue Monday has got you down. Pegged as the most depressing day of the year, the third Monday in January gets its bleak rep from the culmination of factors like the weather, holiday bills and failed New Year’s resolutions.

Fortunately there are plenty of comfort foods to put a smile on your face. I would happily indulge in this array of tasty treats from cute miniature cupcakes to chocolate dessert drinks.

Check out all these feel good foods to console the soul and satisfy the senses this Blue Monday.
