Snow = Comfort Food
Well another snow storm and the desire to eat comfort food becomes a bit overwhelming. I think that we all end up being conditioned from childhood that snow means hot chocolate, marshmallows, warm cookies, etc. Mom always treated us when we came in from the snow. Things were different then - running up the hill with the sled just to slide back down really burnt some calories so all the added treats didn't seem to bother you. Now we see snow, think comfort food and cringe at the thought of going out in the snow to
sled! So I stay inside and want the comfort food. So let's try to recondition ourselves to make snow = salad instead of snow = cookies. :o) Yeah right!!! Happy shoveling!!!
