Comfort Food - soothing body and soul

January 2017 represents an interesting dilemma for those seeking to increase their level of self-care. 

Many choose to limit or eliminate certain foods for a variety of health-seeking reasons.

Others feel an acute need for comfort and turn to specific foods to feed that craving.

What are your comfort foods — the ones you look back on nostalgically with the assurance that after their ingestion, all will be well again? 

Often, it's not one's favorite dish that stirs such longings. Rather, it's the memory of the time, place, or people that the victuals conjure. 

So, what are the treats that make you smile ... and why? Do please share so we may all savor your contentment.
