I could have a separate blog all about stress eating. But for fun right now, let’s list a few items that I favour when under a great deal of stress (notice that most – not all – are conveniently served from a box or tin):
– Chef Boyardee Beef Ravioli
– Kraft Dinner
– Hot dogs
– A mixture of rice, bacon and fried onion
– McDonald’s cheeseburger and fries
Notice that my list does not contain items like:
– Fresh fruit
– Skim milk
– Crispy salad
– Yogurt and granola
– Grilled chicken breast
– Carrot sticks and lite ranch dressing
And also notice that when under a great deal of stress, I can’t even attempt to draw these healthy items. My body completely rejects them. Physically and creatively.
Fear not fans of my blog! Although under stress, it is nothing, absolutely NOTHING to worry about. Just one of those “life” moments that will sort itself out in good time.

Yeah, I've never seen anyone binge on salad! Funny how that works. KD is a comfort food for me too. I like it because (1) it is fluorescent orange and there's not many foods about which you can say that, (2) it reminds me of my childhood and (3) you don't even have to chew the frickin' stuff — just slide it on down!
I am with you on the KD! My rice comfort food tends to be Asian-based rather than bacon and onion. 😀
with you on everything but the tinned ravioli. I would add jello/yogurt dessert, tomato aspic, any number of wobbly delights of that kind. Brie. grilled cheese sandwiches. And the ever faithful peanut butter…
