|I think you're right that comfort food can be physically or mentally comforting... but I don't need to be feeling blue to enjoy a bit of mental comfort. A lot of typical southern foods remind me of childhood and my grandma's cooking, so a bowl of collards with vinegar or good cornbread (I'm very picky about my cornbread) will always bring a smile to my face.
For when I'm physically sick, it's soup all the way. Soup and grilled cheese are also a great combination when I want a more filling meal on a sick day.
My husband has a whole different set of comfort foods. He grew up eating a lot of curries; I think palak paneer is his ultimate mental-comfort food. He also introduced me to instant ramen - great when you're sick because it's salty, warm, and calorie dense, and he always throws a bunch of veggies into the stuff while it's cooking to make more of a meal.
