I was never an emotional eater and food was never really a reward for me until a couple years ago. Now, I am realizing that I totally eat my emotions. My one big emotional binge is Entenmann's cinnamon powdered "pop'ettes", among other things.
It's the weirdest thing, I'm not even really into sweets but oh those yummy donuts. These things are highly unhealthy. 3 mini donuts have 23% of your daily fat intake along with hydrogenated vegetable oil and who knows what else. The nutrition facts for 3 donuts is not horrific but when I buy these things I can guarantee I will not eat just 3. Oh no, I've got to eat at least 5 in one sitting and usually with a glass of milk. Why is it that "comfort" food is always so unhealthy and so heavy?
I'm curious to know what your comfort food is. Do tell!
