Today, I wanted to talk about my favorite subject.
No, not books.
Food. (Sorry in advance if I make you hungry!)
I’m eating waffles for breakfast and it got me thinking about comfort foods. When you think of comfort food, I’m sure you think of eating food that turns your sadness into happiness if that’s what you’re experiencing at this time. For example, in most movies, people go for that favorite pint or bigger size, depending, of ice cream in the freezer and eat their little hearts out! Or it’s something with chocolate, brownies or giant Hershey bars.
I’ve always been a savory kind of comfort eater. Well with the exception of waffles. I go for the alfredo noodles or scrambled eggs and grits. I started to really think about when I eat these comfort foods. Usually I’m not even sad. I’m just feeling some kind of way in general. Could be about literally anything. But then I thought isn’t really comfort for my feelings or is it just a comfort craving? For example, last night after fixing my turtle’s unexpected fiasco madness (story for tomorrow), I decided I wanted lasagna. I wasn’t upset about the situation. I knew it was inevitable and I was just being lazy but I randomly decided lasagna would make me feel better. Luckily my husband was going out to buy snacks for his work and I asked him to pick up some of those frozen lasagnas. Beautiful soul that he is, he literally bought four different brands and I proceeded to eat two of them. Great Value (Walmart brand) makes good frozen lasagna, just FYI. Anyway, I felt my spirits lifting eating this, probably not good for you, frozen lasagna that turned out to be super delicious.
But, my spirits were never down to begin with. I was quite happy before the lasagna even came into the picture cause my turtle was a happy little turtle swimming around in his new and improved tank. So how did lasagna shoot my happiness levels higher?
Now I’m at work and my feelings are blah. Probably cause it’s Monday and it’s work and waffles can’t even make me happier. So now what do I do? Cross my fingers that the day goes faster I suppose.
And that my friends, are my random thoughts for today. Hope you enjoyed them and their chaotic flow from my mind to this blog post. 🙂 Do you have any go to comfort cravings? How do they normally make you feel? Let me know in the comments below!
