How Loaded Pierogi is Satisfying the Hearts (and Stomachs) of Canadians

Does Comfort Food Actually Make Us Happy?

It’s an interesting question. Can food change our mood?

The simple answer is: YES.

Picture this. You just got off work. It was a stressful day. There is nothing in the fridge and you don’t feel like cooking anyway. All you want is to hop in the car, drive to a restaurant, and pick up something hot and delicious to eat.

Sure, it’s partly because of convenience. But why do we crave comfort food when feeling blue?

Apparently, it’s science! That’s just how our brains are wired. Food is a natural mood enhancer. In a way, it acts as a stimulant and also anti-depressant. When people are sad, stressed, or upset, they intentionally seek out things that they know will make them feel better and bring a smile to their face.

Stimulating taste buds is a great way to do this!

Some foods – like pierogis – are full of carbohydrates. The soft dough and mashed potatoes inside make the body produce “feel good chemicals, such as serotonin. And don’t forget the cheese. Cheeses (like those contained in #getloaded pierogis) are bursting with tryptophan. Good levels of this amino acid help regulate serotonin, which is what keeps us feeling positive and happy.

Who would have thought, huh?

Our emotional states can be influenced by something as simple as a Loaded Pierogi.

Of course, there is also a deeply emotional aspect to pierogis. Since many of us grew up eating this traditionally Polish food, they bring back fond memories as adults. Food and culture go hand in hand. The taste of “home” can trigger fond recollections of happy times.

Yup. No doubt about it. There’s something very special about a pierogi. Here are Loaded Pierogi, we know this best! That’s why our menu includes the classics. But, we also offer fun add-ons. Our appetizing bowls can be customized with a variety of different toppings.
