Comfort Foods...

I dislike the term “comfort food.” Even Gary “Baba Booey” Dell’Abate from The Howard Stern Show mentioned he hates the phrase on the show this week—although, that doesn’t stop him from GORGING on chocolates!

Comfort food sounds like a cover up for food addictions. Speaking of comfort food, EDiets offers up a list of the Top 10 Comfort Foods. Take a look:

  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Chocolate chip cookies
  • Ice cream
  • Pizza
  • Grilled cheese sandwiches
  • Tomato soup
  • Popcorn
  • Chocolate shakes
  • Pancakes
  • Homemade soups and stews

YUCK! Sure, tomato soup and popcorn aren’t horrible, but look at the rest of that crap. Lots of sugar, dairy fat and refined foods—not exactly health promoting.

My list of “comfort foods” would include: avocado, tomatoes, bananas and at worst, bread so grainy and hearty you could build a house with it!

Homemade soups and stews sound good to me- the veggie and bean kind. Shakes? Well how about a chocolate smoothie with spinach and fruit... and maybe raspberies or cherries or blueberries. Now that's comfort food.

I was going to say the same thing about homemade soups and stews. Sounds healthy and comforting to me.
