I found these comments, better yet they were put on my page by someone who cares, and that makes me feel I don't know , so many things . One I am afraid to lose theme. I am not so good at with the PC. Then I feel great that there is out there a big world full of hope and wonderful people who are very willing to share everything with you. I don't want to lose this site .
I am comforted by the fact that I like all these foods and they are good for me. I am unhappy when I know I'm eating something that is keeping me from reaching my goal of good health. How can something that makes me unhappy be comforting" All it takes to get over eating unhealthy food is a change in perspective and a willingness to love yourself.
I guess everyone is different, for me, yoghurt with berries and a little bit of honey comforts me more than mashed potatoes, cake and candy. Then again I've never really had a sweet tooth. I loved seeing vegetable juice, i'm a sucker for carrot juice! Delicious!
I hope you received the help you were asking for!!! I too eat EVERYTHING to stuff my feelings!!! I have recently been put on medication that help with depression and obsessive and compulsive behavior! What a sincere life saver!!! I wish you the very best with finding healthier ways to cope with a broken heart!
What would you suggest to those who suffer from chronic depression and eat their feelings away? To someone that doesn't even know that they're stuffing down their feelings, it's a mindless act every day and night. With me, this is how i gained 60 lbs since last July. My grandpa had died and I ate and ate and ate until I felt bloated and full. I felt so bad and am now 230 lbs. I used to weigh 170. It's hard for me to decide how I go about eating. I have cravings and i don't know how to stop them. Please, is there anyone who can help?
When I think of comfort I don't really think of a smoothie, but still I like the list. Except for the crock pot. I'm a good cook *amn it! But not when it comes to the crock pot. I don't know what it is but I can't just throw stuff in the crock pot and it comes out tasting good. Heck, I've followed recipes and it still comes out awful. (except for the re-fried beans recipe on Spark - those were cool) I think I'm supposed to stick to the stove.
I am a 60 years old amature bodybuilder. I guess I am the only oatmeal nut with a unique recipe. I have been eating oatmeal as part of my breakfast at least five times weekly for the last 20 years. I cooked 20 oz. of ground turkey with green onions and other seasoning, then placed them in a container, then I scooped about 6 oz. into my pot and cooked the oatmeal with water. Sometime I would throw the left oever in there. It would look and taste like hot soup when cooked, this along with 3 - 6 eggs and dry wheat toast would get me through the morning workout. I loved to put some hot sauce in there too. It was especially filling in a chill winter days.
I like the chicken noodle soup idea! I will try it next time, never thought of it before but boy I wish I had read this earlier in the day today - it may have saved my day. I have listed them out for my cupboard door and will refer to the list next time! Thanks!

I think natural yogurt with blueberries, strawberries and 1/2 banana mixed with 1/2c water and 1/2 non fat milk is absolutely one to die for. No need for sugar because the banana, and berries have more than enough sweetner in it. I make this everyday whilst berries are in season. I've frozen berries for when out of season. Not only is it healthy but that's a breakfast on its on.
This is my comfort food. Porridge is another one. The rest don't do anything exciting for me.
