December 5, 2016

There are some days when you just need something that will comfort you inside and out. It may be your favorite sweats and a big sweater, it may mean a snuggly blanket, and it may mean certain foods that make you feel warm and cozy. On December 5th, we get to indulge in those feelings because it’s National Comfort Food Day. Comfort foods are different from person to person. For some, it may mean fried food while for others, it may mean a bowl of soup. What they do have in common is that they are foods that bring out emotions in us — nostalgia, safety, sentimentality, calm, or peace. We tend to crave comfort foods when we are stressed or feeling unsure and unsteady. Another thing most comfort foods have in common is that they are indulgent.
