Sometimes life..... happens. And I know I'm not alone when I tell you food is my #1 go-to for comfort. Way back when, I mean WAY back, my go-to was a trip to KFC/Taco Bell for a snackwich and fries supreme. Not that long ago my go-to was a big bag of Old Dutch chips or a giant, grease soaked bag of home style fries from George's. But as I continue this journey into falling in love with foods that don't make me ill but can still comfort me, I've also learned to give myself a break from time to time. Now I can assure you my days of fast food are behind me and I miss NONE of it. But I will indulge in some George's fries from time to time and find some new alternatives that may not be 'healthy' but are certainly less processed and laden with ingredients I just don't want in my body. Yesterday my comfort was an entire Theo's chocolate bar from Vita Health Fresh Market. importance and HUGE benefit of organic chocolate that is certified Fair Trade and is made by a reputable company I feel good about supporting. And for a moment, I felt the creamy comfort I was in need of. Not only was I comforted by the amazing levels of flavor and texture and flat out yumminess, but it also felt good to support a company that gives a shit about the food they're putting out into the world.
What's your go-to comfort food? Do you have a healthier alternative that is giving you as much comfort as the not so healthy one?
