Comfort Food

Monday, May 12, 2008

Ok ladies, we all have our favorite foods that give us that yummy in our tummy satisfaction! From cravings to cramps we can always rely on those ohh so good treats. I have found that my must have items range from avocados, mashed potatoes and Ben & Jerry’s Oatmeal Cookie Chunk ice cream (I know this is totally a random assortment). So what are your mmm must have foods and why? Do you think food is really comforting or just food?

MY comfort food is salt and vinegar chips. I just love sour things. I think food just temporarily makes you feel better because its something you like and enjoy therefore its comforting to eat it.

for me, i like having vanilla ice cream with blueberries on it. I'm a pretty healthy eater so this to me, is comforting. I think food is just food, its a matter of how much you enjoying eating a certain food that it makes you feel more comfortable

My comfort food is actually almost any type of pasta! Especially if I make it, because I love cooking. I think food can be comforting, but most of the time what is comforting is the time you spend just enjoying something you like, and feeling happy and peaceful.

mmmm! by accident i found my favorite strange comfort food. crab puffs chips (kinda like cheesy poofs but with a crabby/old bay flavor) and easy cheese. its not an easy combo to eat because the crab puffs are thin so it takes some concentration, but it is TOTALLY worth it!! and, i wasnt even pregnant when i came up with it!! it was a hit at my last party!

Macaroni is my comfort food (among many others)... I think we turn to food because it gives us a distraction. When we are eating our favorite foods it gives us something to think and talk about other then whatever it is that is bothering us.It gives us something to do with our hands and time. Why not have a yummy snack and be distracted??? Two birds one stone.

Definitely avocados! Also, I find that really gourmet dark chocolate has a calming effect on me that my friends and hubby have laughed at. (I have a mini-euphoric experience for a few seconds before coming back to earth-usually to find I didn't hear whatever was just said to me.) Also really good breads are a favorite-especially sourdough. I think food can be comforting and OK as long as it's not taken to excess, and I've done that too. But sometimes if you're stressed, a piece of dark chocolate is really nice to calm you down and give you a jolt of happiness :)

Comfort food can help you get through some difficult stuff. My favorite is McDonald's McFlurry with m&m's and oreo cookie. I am also in love with shrimp pasta. It may be high in cholesterol but it is delicious. :)

My must have food is Godiva's dark chocolates. Cannot live without them. Whenever I feel stressed by life or work or studies, the rich dark chocolates from Godiva's will always lift me up. Good food (especially chocolates and desserts) are the most soothing thing when I am upset or stressed.

My comfort food cravings seem to be hormonally driven and usually involves sweets and lots of carbs! And it is comforting - satisfying at least.

I definitely think comfort foods are the real deal (mine just happens to be meatloaf made by my mom). I think it has nothing to do with how strange or run of the mill (such as meatloaf) it is, it is all about the feeling that said food provokes.

Definitely have the cravings...I mean who doesn't? Except mine isn't just to go grab a candy bar like normal people. I end up making a batch of cookie dough or brownie dough, substitute the eggs for a little water, and then it's healthy to eat....RIGHT? Forget about those small portions, leave that for when aunt flo isn't in town. Grab the bowl, a spoon, a quiet spot or a favorite movie, and dig in. Serving size: 1/2 today, 1/2 tonight. Stir and enjoy!

Any kind of ice cream is my comfort food. After an upsetting or stressful day, I CRAVE ice cream. I like to get something premade at a store, like a shake or a sundae. But in a pinch I'll get something out of the carton. I've been trying the lowfat varieties of ice cream, and most are pretty good. That gets rid of some of the guilt I have when I'm eating my comfort food. But I figure it is better than smoking!

My favs - I would make fresh baked brownies, and place a warm brownie at the bottom of a bowl, load in vanilla ice cream, add chocolate sauce on top of ice cream, and if you want add a scoop of whipped cream! So Good!

I think food can be comforting when you've had something bad happen, which is probably why people always cook for your family when there has been a tradgedy. For me personally, I don't care what the food itself is, but I like to go out and sit at an all night diner with friends. that helps just as much as the fries.

I am ALWAYS comforted by good pasta with butter and grated parmesan cheese (not that kraft stuff in a bottle, yuck). And chocolate is an old reliable favorite. I know that some foods are just built in that we like them, and they trigger certain responses because we associate them with certain events, etc. Like the first time I ate rhubarb,I was tricked into thinking it was pink applesauce. I will never again be able to eat it. But other foods, like our family Christmas tradition of rasberry-kiwi-spinach salad, I associate with good times. And so they just taste better, and really are comforting.

I think food is just food. If you think eating something is going to make you feel better, you may end up feeling worse. It doesn't solve anything at all! Of course everyone has their own certain cravings, but it certainly doesn't give me butterflies when I eat ice cream or chips. Maybe it is all what you tell yourself??!!

COMFORT FOOD = RAMEN NOODLES! Yes the sodium kills me when I'm done, but holy moly I indulge in that like crazy! Not only is it cheap, but it's tasty and instantly ready! I'm a sucker for chinese food so that says much about me :) It's a weird comfort thing to eat, but hey, to each her own!

My favorite comfort food is Turkey Hill Vanilla Bean ice cream. It's a classic and is refreshing. I could probably eat a gallon without knowing on the coach. I think I've done that too. It just makes me feel happy, and triggers some weird thing in my body haha.

Food is just food to me. I enjoy Blue Bunny Sugar Free bars but I don't look at it as comfort food. I like sweet potatoes and fresh asparagus especially and won't turn down strawberry-rhubarb pie. (I've never had a weight problem either.)

My comfort foods are icecream (ben n jerries; several varieties), starbucks' honey frap with extra extra whip. (I make them put a tall in a venti sized cup for room for my extra whip. hehe) Croutons (lightly seasoned with a great crunch) and fritos. Never all at once, mind you!!! Also, if I feel down, I can always eat a mcdonald's hot & spicy mcchicken and think of how my dad had to work so hard to get me to even try one... I miss him.

I think food can be really comforting. If you have a horrible day who doesn't want to sit on the couch with her two favorite men, Ben and Jerry? I know it always makes me feel better. My friends and I all get together and bring our comfort food and sit on the couch and the floor and talk for hours. It's great. My favorite comfort food is definitely ice cream. And I never feel guilty after I eat it because i love it so much.

I really think that food is really comforting, and I love food. It's not an exagerating thing, but every time that I am hungry and want something to eat I'll go get it. Either if its shrimps, pizza, salad, lobster, chickenburger, wathever. And talking about junk food; I love junk food. Everything that has do do with picante; wathever that has chile. Whenever I am very hungry, I know that this is not healthy for my body, but when I am hungry I buy flamithots cheetos with chamoy or salsa and a gatorade, and sometimes my mom doesn't want me to buy something with chile becase I have GERD, so instead of buying flamithots I like to buy the funions rings with melted cheese on top. They taste so good! Oh well, I guess that's all I can say, now you know what I like to eat when I am hungry. = )

I don't eat food for comfort if I am depressed, usually I don't want to eat when I'm down, I lose my appetite. For a treat though, I do love Haagen Dazs ice cream, they defintely are the best quality with no fillers, Chocolate chip cookie dough is the best as well as a new reserve flavor called Carmel del sur or something like that. Amazing, but I only have a few bites, because it is so rich I am full after just that much. If I am depressed, I try to work out or do yoga or clean the house, or listen to music on a nice walk, that makes me feel better than filling my tummy with something unhealthy. But I do adore food and love good quality food with friends and especially my boyfriend. We eat a raw food diet often, organic, clean, and none of the minerals/vitamins have been killed yet, by heat. You kind of get a high when you eat like that, food doesn't weigh you down. So I guess in a way my raw/live food diet is comforting, but in a healthy way and its delicious!!

My comfort foods definitely depend on the situation, it's a little weird. A must-have mmm food, however, is Haagen Dazs White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. What else ... whatever I bake, since I tend to bake when I'm under a lot of pressure or stress. Comfort food does make me feel better while I'm under stress or frustration or whatnot, but after that phase, I feel a little guilty of what I ate!

My comment has to do with Brazilian waxing: my OB-GYN told me this is one of the worst things a woman can do to herself because this area is highly bacterial and you need pubic hair as protection against infection and for "cushioning". If the porno industry had not started this fad, women wouldn't feel the need to do it. But internet porn seems to be very influential. BTW, why would any adult female want her genitals to look like a five-year-olds?

Comfort foods generally involve fat and carbs for me: ice cream, the darkest dark chocolate(!), homemade hot chocolate with whipped cream, mac & cheese, etc. But the mood that needs comforting dictates the comfort food of choice.

During the day, I love fresh, sweet fruits. Crisp Fuji apples are on the top of my list. I also love grapes, kiwis, mangoes from Asia, Dragon fruit (not just for the name), pineapples, and strawberries.

I feed my body food that it craves at that moment. Cravings usually tell you what your body really needs; nowadays, however, people listen to mental hunger rather than physical hunger, causing themselves to overindulge. We humans, and we need food to survive and that is why we enjoy it so much. While many think we still value food in the same way, obesity's problems stem from no longer really knowing our body's signals and not truly enjoy the social aspects of food. Sit down to a meal with friends or family, and you'll feel the immediate difference from when you eat by yourself!

I find that whenever i have cramps, i crave hot foods. So i totally splurge on Hot Cheetos and Hot Fries or anything that contains jalapenos. Maybe i'm forcing myself to get an upset stomach so that i'll forget about the cramps!!! And after eating all that spicyness, then i start craving dessert- trust me, i have a huge sweet tooth. I enjoy eating very much, and the more unique, the better. For someone with a big appetite like me, I just find it very irritating when i see someone saying things like "I don't like the taste," or "I'm too full" when they've had only one bite. Eating is one of the pleasureable moments of life and one should expand their horizons by trying as many differents food as they can!

It can't happen everyday but sometimes good food is just what I need to feel better. But of course the next day I have to get in some extra workout time :(

I think that the comfort feeling of food depends on the person. I for one feel more relaxed after drinking a nice cup of hot tea or warm milk with nutmeg and cinnamon and vanilla. It may be just in my head, but I feel better. What matters most is, if it makes you feel good to eat or drink certain foods, then indulge yourself. Sushi anyone?

I can honestly say, that everyone has their "must have" items and i think the range is pertinent to what is happening in your life. There are days that i need the sweet and the salty to the days that one can indulge entirely on sugar, be it chocolate, ice cream or candy bars. There even happens to be the day that i can indulge in nothing but sweet but chewy (non-chocie)stuff. Comfort comes in all shapes, sizes, flavors and of course indulgence levels. All i know is sometimes there are just no getting out of what you crave. The longer I wait the more the hype and certainly... the more I indulge. Thus, finding all the reasons, why its ok to feel this way. And, yes of course at the end of it all... the grand finale comes when I carry it out more than one day and then become sick. It's obsessive and I know this, which is why it's comforting!

Carbs Carbs and more Carbs! I crave cake, cookies, pastries, etc. When I'm not feeing so great - these totally comfort me. I'm learning not to run towards them but towards God and my family. They provide much more comfort than food ever could. Then when I have the food I love - I'm able to enjoy it a lot more! Food should just be food that we enjoy but don't "need" to have.

the food i adore to no end is cookie dough. a lot of people think its gross but when i'm down its something that always perks me up a little. it's better than the cookies. i think food can be comforting and in many cases asks as a way to socialize. a lot of times i go out to eat with friends when im down and feel a lot better.

My must have foods are: flavored sunflower seeds (when I'm watching movies especially), fresh fruit, McDonald's parfaits, Lay's plain potato chips and candy bars (all kinds). I have chocolate cravings often. I love my sister's homemade cookies (they are SO good). I don't think food is really comforting. I believe it's more of something to occupy your time. I almost always have to have something in my mouth (thus the need for sunflower seeds).

I have found in those times when I just came seem to focus until I nibble on a little something. Nothing satisfies that void like a nice glazed honeybun. Preferably the vending machine kind! I depend on this at work at times. Thank goodness I was delivered from honeybuns during my pregnancy, it wasn't the healthiest food choice, but tasty nonetheless!

The second being Circus Peanuts, they are orange marshmallows shaped like a peanut. The third is Dulce de Leche Ice Cream. All 3 snacks and a "I Love Lucy" re-run I am in Heaven. LOL!!

I would have to say my favorite comfort foods are warm bread and milk, OR a brownie ( chocolate..surprise surprise ). I think food can be comforting. Because if you've had a bad day, your favorite "comfort" food, can help put you in a better mood since it is something that you love. And sometimes help you calm down enough to realize the stuff that made your day bad in the first place, is all going to be OK! =)

It depends on the time of the month for me. Sometimes, all that I want is something salty and bad for me. Most of the time though, I am a sweets fan. MooseTracks ice cream is my all time favorite. I think that I could eat it everyday and not get sick of it. The only thing that I would get sick of would be looking in the mirror and seeing how big I was getting!

I must admit Chocolate is my comfort food, regardless what time of the day, month or year it is. My most favorite is Ben & Jerry's New York Super Fudge chunk you can't go wrong. Its chocolate ice cream with chocolate covered nuts, chunks or milk and white chocolate. I can finish the entire pint in less than five minutes. If not the Ben & Jerry's chocolate fudge brownie. After a hard day at work I won't even make it out of the grocery store parking lot. Once I'm done eating it everything is all better.

I don't personally think food in a sense is comforting. I eat what you would call comfort foods according to what my body is needing at the time. I crave certain veggies during the month when I am stressed and lacking nutrients and sweets during that time of month. I always try to eat reasonably healthy so I consider comfort eating healthy eating that my body is needing at that moment.
