Cheer Up! 9 Spanish Foods to Brighten Your Day

Spanish foods to battle the blues.

There is a lot of bad news flooding the airwaves and interwebs these days. Combine that with the dramatic “here come the arctic temperatures!” weathermen, and I think we could all use a bit of cheering up (I know I could!).

When I’m feeling blue, I turn to my taste buds. There are few things that put a smile on my face faster than a bite of something scrumptious. Here in Spain, cheer-me-up foods are everywhere, especially as the cold starts to settle in. From soul-warming soups to in-season nuts and fruits that are scientifically joy-inducing, Spanish food offers a bevy of edible pick-me-ups.
