Can Comfort Food be Healthy?

Can comfort food be healthy? This is a question that has been puzzling me for years now, and I think I have come to a conclusion finally. My answer is yes. You might ask: “But isn’t comfort food something like macaroni and cheese that packs on the calories but makes you feel better?”

I admit that the food that falls under this definition makes me feel better while I am eating it, but after the fact, I feel like a large blob of jelly that is in need of a trip to the gym.

In my opinion, comfort food can be any food that you associate with a good memory. For me, this means fish. As a child, I frequently ate salmon and other types of fish at home or at my grandmother’s house, so I associate fish with my childhood.

Fish is healthy, but that shouldn’t mean that it can’t be comfort food. Plus, I don’t feel the urge to go to the gym after I eat it. Now that’s comforting!
