Do you need comfort food?

Do you need comfort food?It’s been a few years since I was able to eat comfort food without consequences. When I think of comfort food, I think of my mom’s meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Or creamy chocolate ice cream with hot fudge. What I also think about are the hours the next day in the bathroom while my digestive tract reacts and recovers. Do you need comfort food?

About a year ago, I replaced my vitamins with essential oil infused vitamins from Young Living. I added a juice, Ningxia, also from Young Living. And I started drinking bone broth every morning.

I’m not sure what helped the most, the vitamins, the juice, or the bone broth, but I need to partake of all of them every day in order to spend less time in the porcelain office. This is my experience.

Now I can partake of our meatloaf and mashed potatoes.

The meatloaf has no eggs, uses corn syrup free ketchup, has organic or grass-fed ground meat, organic oats, and lots of shredded organic vegetables. I can eat at least one serving of vegetables with each serving of meatloaf!

The mashed potatoes consist of white sweet potatoes and cauliflower cooked and mashed with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper added. There is no butter, cream, or milk in this and it is creamy deliciousness.

Why no white potatoes? Because I react to white potatoes now. So these are my new mashed potatoes.

Have a hankering for potato salad?

Try it with white sweet potatoes, cauliflower, spinach, and cut up Bubbies Bread & Butter pickles. No mayonnaise, no eggs, and no dairy. Add in garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

We use a lot of onion powder and garlic powder. I buy it organic from Amazon. It’s less expensive and I know it doesn’t have any additives.

These are the simple comfort foods I cheat with when I want good old fashioned foods.
