The Desire for Comfort Food

A desire for comfort food,

Plagues us in times of stress.

In tacit agreement with our emotional chemistry,

Our body makes us crave familiar treats..

Warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream,

Chicken baked in a rich creamy sauce.

Favourite flavours and aromas comfort us like a warm blanket,

Or bring joy like a surprise package in the mailbox .

  1. Although I love treats, especially warm apple pie, and Cheetos, I have to be mindful of what’s going on in my life when I go to them instead of finding a solution for whatever is happening.

    I guess that’s because I don’t need the extra weight from the treats or the stress. What I most enjoy is getting surprise packages, cards, or letters, in my mailbox. Instant lift, assured smile, no wrinkles, no calories!!!
