Food for Thought: Pun Intended
I was just thinking about comfort food. If we are raised to eat healthy when we grow older and go through tough times our comfort food would be healthy food. This healthy comfort food would ultimately make us actually physically feel better. What if when we are feeling down we grabbed some sliced apple with cinnamon (something my mom made for me when I was a kid) instead of hitting up the drive through? If you are already feeling down and turn to unhealthy foods you are going to just feel worse. If you turn to foods that remind you of childhood where your parents/guardians taught you to eat well then your comfort food would not be such a bad thing.
