With the return of the rain and that dreaded time of year when we have to set our clocks back for the end of daylight savings, I think we can officially declare that we are entering comfort food season — and do I have the ultimate comfort food for you this week with this Venison Lasagna Soup.  

Comfort foods aren’t just an expression either, they really do provide both emotional comfort as well as reduce stress hormones in our bodies. A number of studies show that people feel less depressed, anxious and irritable after consuming carbohydrate-rich foods due to the fact that eating these starchy foods helps our bodies make serotonin, which makes us feel calmer and decreases the stress hormone called cortisol.
