What is Comfort Food?

When someone mentions Comfort Food, the first thing that pops into my mind is sugar. That would be followed with a lot of unhealthy snacks, high carbs and fat food.

And minutes later, I would start thinking… are those food going to give me comfort? Why? I don’t think those food would make me fee comfortable at…

Of so many food related lifestyles (if you don’t really want to call it diet approaches), one that has piqued my interest for a couple of times is this idea of Intuitive Eating.

What Is The Difference Between Food Addiction and Binge Eating Disorder?

What Is The Difference Between Food Addiction and Binge Eating Disorder?

Since my post about addiction a couple of weeks ago, I started to think a lot about crisps and my rich tea biscuits.

I am not sure yet how this is going to help me or anyone else, but probably someone can take an advantage of this particular post. Like I said last time, I don’t get addicted easily.

How Your Food Culture Affects Your Relationship With Food

How Your Food Culture Affects Your Relationship With Food

“Itadakimasu” Of all food culture in the world, I love the Japanese the most. Before they eat, they would put their hands together in front of their food, bow a little, and say “Itadakimasu”. Which now casually translated as something like “Bon apetit” but actually has a deeper meaning like being thankful for the food they are about to eat. But unlike saying grace, this has no religious undertone. Not just consider eating as a part of life — fuelling…
