Nearly a week after deadly terrorist attacks killed 129 people in Paris, restaurants, bistros, and cafés in the culinary capital of the world are making one thing clear: They won’t give in to fear.

School Bullies and Their Victims Both Face Greater Risk of Eating Disorders than Peers

While victims of bullying have long been considered at risk for eating disorders, new research indicates that their aggressors are also troubled by body image issues. According to findings done by researchers at Duke University and the University of South Carolina, children who bully their peers are twice as likely to display signs of bulimia — like bingeing and purging — than their peers. The study examined more than 1,400 students and the findings on the bullies themselves surprised researchers, to whom researchers had previously attributed a certain measure of fortitude. School bullies, researchers found, had a prevalence of bulimia symptoms of 30.8 percent, compared to 17.6 percent of their uninvolved peers.

The trick, Thompson found, was to cook for herself. She says it can be extremely cheap, and she depends on certain items, like the sweet potato, more than others. Some of her other tips include stocking up on Uncle Ben’s quick-cooking rice varieties, lentils, root vegetables, and vegetable soups. For more of her tips, check out the story on The Daily Meal.
