31 Days of Comfort Food: Day 24, Junk Food

I fought long and hard against including junk food in this series on comfort food.
And by long and hard, I mean like 15 minutes. But who's counting?
You see, there is a certain time of the month when nothing  is as comforting to me as junk food.
During this period {see what I did there?} I tend to crave sweets- especially ice cream. That craving was magnified a hundred-fold when I was pregnant. As a result, I gained close to 80 pounds with each baby. Thankfully, I am better able to control my appetite these days.
I am not advocating junk food for every day- heck, not even on most days.  As with any indulgence, moderation is the key to enjoyment. But there are some days when a Snickers really does satisfy, when I really do scream for ice-cream. And on those days I think it is okay to take comfort in my favorite treat.
What are your favorite junk food comforts?

  1. Oh, my goodness, I gained weight like that with my babies. It was terrible. People didn't even recognize me.

    Anyway, white chocolate covered pretzels, sesame sticks, and m&m's - those are my normal junk food cravings. And then there are the burgers...

  2. oh yeah definitely have those days when nothing else satisfies like a hershery bar and a coke.


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know what you think.
