When I am feeling down or discouraged, I often turn to food for comfort. But it can’t be just any old food. It’s gotta be sweet.

Do you engage in comfort eating? If so, what are your favorite foods?
By the way, I don’t endorse comfort eating, but exercise doesn’t satisfy my sweet tooth. If only I could find something to comfort me that didn’t involve eating…
