Few things in life feel as good as having comfort food, especially in the middle of a workday. Even the most voracious eaters and foodies, no matter how exotic their favourite foods and cuisines might be, always come back to certain snacks and dishes that might look basic but score unbeatable points in the comfort category. You don't even have to be an expert or food connoisseur to have your own list of favourite comfort food. And same goes for the actress Anita Hassanandani who in her latest Instagram Stories give us a glimpse of what might be topping her list of comfort food.
In her Instagram Stories that has made us go "yum", Anita posted a picture of her holding a delicious, oven-fresh peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Take a look at her sandwich:

Now, that's an item that's probably on all our comfort food lists. The crunchiness and mild saltiness of the peanut butter and the creaminess of the sweet jam come together in a delightful burst of flavour with every bite of this simple sandwich. Really, whoever invented this deserves all our love for giving us something that's not only so incredibly easy and fast to make but also so effective as a pick-me-up on not-so-great days.
Anita might be inadvertently letting us in on her list of comfort food items on her Instagram, and we are not talking only about the peanut butter sandwich.
When she was pregnant with her baby boy Aaravv, she had posted a picture of herself getting cozy with a delectable ice cream cone. We are in full agreement with her caption, ice cream is always our "forever mood" too.
