Food for Thought: Comfort Food

The best comfort food will always be greens, cornbread, and fried chicken. –  Maya Angleou

“Food is the most primitive form of comfort.” Sheila Graham

Comfort foods are foods we use to soothe our anxiety and depression.  They make us calm and increase endorphins.  For me, my comfort food is pizza or pepperoni rolls  Heck, I will take a good hot dog with chili.  I like salty and spicy foods.    Recently, I learned to eat my pizza with banana peppers instead of pepperoni.  If you can find a way to make it more healthy, you can eat them with a little moderation.  The problem is not the comfort food.  Instead, the problem is the volume of comfort food.
