Feel Better While Staying Healthy

  • I didn't really find too much comfort in the comfort foods listed, but that doesn't mean they aren't comfort foods--for someone else.

    Chicken noodle soup, for instance, I turn to when I'm not feeling well. I guess you can call that comfort if you feel better after eating it, but that's a stretch.

    If nothing else, it's making me think of my own personal list of comfort foods!
  • I read the list and I agree with everyone, the food items listed aren't really comfort foods. Angel Food cake yuk! I will admit a big pot of homemade soup/stew is comforting during a chilly evening warp in a blanket and watching a good movie on televeision. That is comforting to me. Sounds great! I think I will cook a pot this evening.
    I have to agree with the crowd who could not find a single comfort food on the list. I eat yogurt most days. Its great. I love it . Its not comfort food. I'd rather eat a carrot than angel food cake, which has absolute no taste beyond sugar. My idea of comfort food is a grilled cheese sandwich. I try to make it healthier with good whole grain bread, a couple slices of tomato and the absolute minimum amount of butter I can spread on the bread. I've tired just spraying the pan and its OK that way but its comfort food with a teaspoon of butter on the bread.

    I also think that none of those listed are comfort food. Those foods are simply run-of-the-mill healthy everyday foods.For me, comfort food isn't supposed to be healthy! It should be rich and yummy and COMFORTING! lol

    Slice of home-made chocolate cake with moka icing, that's my idea of comfort food. I just take a much smaller piece than I used to and instead of having it often like I used to, I only have it now one in awhile, as a special treat :-)

    Well, there is only one entry in that list that meets my definition of comfort food! That is Angel Food cake. There is no way that the others are comfort foods!!
  • You can always substitute Stevia for sugar in a recipe, it's an all natural sweet herb that is a dietary supplement option and safer than sweet n low or all those other subsituties.
  • Sorry, I don't know how that happened, I just pressed the 'back button'!!!
    Anyone interested about yoghurt, try this link to my other forum (it's an Aussie one).

    Give up the fructose now, I promise you will lose weight, then just tweak the portion size/carbs, and you're on your way. Join that forum, even.

  • OMG, I just read the fruit smoothie recipe, 14 grams of sugar!!!! Quelle Horreur!!! Don't drink it people. Use plain greek-style yoghurt at least. The fruits used are all high-sugar fruits. Look for an alternative lower sugar fruit , and use the whole fruit as much as is possible.

  • Sorry, that should read no more than 5 grams of sugars per 100 grams. A typo, honest!!

  • I always read the nutrition panel after I look at the ingredients. The panel for the Angel cake shows 'Sugars : 0.0 g" Gimme a break!!!! 1 and a half cups of granulated sugar makes zero sugars? I think someone made a mistake. Fix it quick, please. Also, Spark Kitchen, can I substiture dextrose powder for the sugar? If so, how much do I use?
    I've given up sugar, at least the fructose half of it, 9 months now, I don't want the fructose poisoning my body anymore. In that time I lost 6kilos, put on 3.5, then lost another 5, almost 6. I'm down almost 9 kilos now, and on my way to my goal of another 3 before my birthday in August. I did it by stopping myself eating/drinking fructose. If anyone's interested, start by not ever drinking fruit juice again, or eating dried fruit. You may as well drink neat fructose. On your nutrirional panels, don't buy any sauces or products that contain more than 8 grams of sugars per 100 grams. Always eat whole fruit, & make it your business to find out how much sugar is in the fruits you do eat. Fructose makes you fat, look up the research yourself, just put fructose poison into your search engine. .

  • The last time I had a bite of angel food cake, it tasted like chemicals. I suppose if it were homemade, I might like it. But it's mostly sugar, and too sweet for my taste.

    I disagree about breakfast: Oatmeal is terrific, but why not have coffee too? Coffee is good for us.

    Sometimes we get carried away. But otherwise, this article was Okay.
  • Not really comfort foods to me either; I make my smoothies with full fat yoghurt and any frozen fruit - very satisfying. A better comfort food for me is 1 serving of cooked pasta of any type added to a can of seasoned diced tomatoes, and a TB of butter. Reasonable in calories, filling and yummy
    Angel food cake with LOTS of icing. that's comfort food.
  • Sorry, not one of the foods listed fits into my definition of comfort food!
  • angel food cake can be scrumptious...cut up some strawberries and put them on top with fatfree whip cream...yum! think i'll buy some tonight.
