What Is Your Comfort Food?

An interesting food study was released this week at the American Dietetic Association's annual meeting in Chicago. In the study, participants were asked to list foods according to a variety of emotional responses. Top on the list for happy foods were ice cream, grapes, chocolate, and pizza. I was surprised to see that grapes ranked so high on the "happy list," and I was equally surprised by some foods ranked lowest on the happiness scale: tofu, salmon, avocado, and bologna. Salmon and avocado? Those are two of my favorite foods and they make me really happy.

One thing I found interesting in this study were the foods that ranked highest in the comfort food category. Chocolate, ice cream, grapes, spaghetti, macaroni, apples, and oranges topped the comfort food list. Count them — there are three fruits in that list. As a health food freak, that makes me pretty excited.

Naturally, I am curious if any of these foods are also your comfort food. So tell me . . .
