Comfort Food…

Be Mine

I saw this card and just couldn’t resist…because it reminded me of comfort food.  You know, that food that takes you back to a simplier time ~ it doesn’t matter if it’s a food that’s actually good for you or not…but it’s a food that has a good memory for you.  Do you know what I mean?  Do you have one?

I went to a favorite restaurant nearby on Friday because I was craving a good grilled cheese ~ you know, the kind with crispy bacon, tomato and actually made in the pan with a little pat of butter…the kind I don’t make but the kind that brings me back to happy childhood memories.

I even bought a small package of my favorite brand of potato chips and 3 homemade chocolate chip cookies to top off my comfort to the max..and I can happily say, I ate it all (well only one cookie) guilt-free ~ enjoying every morsel and feeling that enjoyment with every bite.

Feeding your body and mind with comforting thoughts and foods is essential to a happy life.  The magic is in not overdoing it and in keeping a healthy balance in all things.

I’m not advocating emotional eating, but I get it when you can enjoy comfort from food occasionally.  Don’t you agree?

May you find comfort today in every thought and every bite!


P.S.  I have a special place in my heart for mustard sandwiches as well, but that’s a post for another day. 🙂

  1. Yumm!! Spaghetti-O’s and Alphabet Pastas fell into the same category as Twinkies when I was a kid! – How you just learn to love those things that are forbidden! – Hoping you have a wonderful day!
