Consume: Soothing Green Tea
Listen: “Someone That I Used To Know”- Gotye ft. Kimbra
You are in shock, disbelief, and of course complete denial. Sip some soothing green tea and have some time for inner contemplation. It’s the calm before the epic emotional and carb-loading storm to come.
Consume: Big juicy steak
Listen: “Ring the Alarm” Beyonce
Now things are getting real. In your fit of rage you crave protein, so whip up a nice juicy steak, something you can truly sink your teeth into. Fuel the fire while cooking and blast angry curse-riddled rap, but for added girl power we suggest the Queen B herself.
* note: for vegetarians out there i’m sure tofu can be paired with anger just as nicely.
Consume: Massive amounts of Chocolate ( preferably dark)
Listen to: ” If Only”- Dave Matthews Band
You are now probably sitting on the floor amidst a pile of pictures, trying to pinpoint the moment it all went wrong ( good luck). While you feel the helplessness wash over you, help yourself to some stress relieving chocolate and turn up the Dave Matthews Band Jams. The pity party has begun in earnest now and there is no shame in that!
Consume: Mercer’s Wine Icecream
Listen: ” Someone Like You” Adele
We all knew this time would come. What pairs better with your own salty tears than wine and ice cream? Oh thats right, actual wine ice cream ( I know, stay calm). Blast on the Adele and belt it like you never have. No one is judging you except maybe the cat.
5. Acceptance ( and peace )
Listen : “We Are Never Ever”- Taylor Swift
At this point your friends are all getting concerned since you stopped answering phone calls and have yet to shower. They can feel better because you finally are starting to feel okay with what happened, no more tears and no more anger! Get yourself clean and go out for sushi with your friends, blasting some serious jams on the way.
Of course going through any break up is tough, but food and music will always be there for you!
