Comfort foods are the gastronomic equivalent of a relaxing shower or a favorite blanket. Many people crave comfort foods when they are stressed out or away from home or overworked. With two kids and a house to run I often feel frazzled and tend to seek refuge in food. I know that this is something that I should not be doing but I just can't help it at times.
My favorite comfort foods are icecream and potato crisps. I usually take potato crisps with a can of diet drink or a cup of hot Milo. I find hot Milo refreshing even in warm weathers....somehow hot drinks soothe me more. I am unable to lose weight partly because of my comfort foods. I indulge in emotional eating especially during those long afternoons when I have to keep my active toddler occupied.
