Comfort foods. We all have a favorite go-to recipe or dish that makes us feel just a little bit better when things aren’t going our way. But the ugly truth about comfort foods is that the joy they bring is almost always replaced with a heaping helping of guilt afterward. Sure, we may feel emotionally satisfied as we are taking down that slice of pecan pie, or second plate of lasagna, but cut to the sugar crash an hour later and things are not comfortable at all.
Trust me; I know all about life on the sugar roller coaster. Before I lost over 90 pounds on the keto diet, I was an emotional eater with a massive sugar addiction. It wasn’t hard to do growing up in Mississippi.
As a southern girl, I know my way around comfort food. Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gumbo, shrimp and grits, and fried green tomatoes. That’s just a regular Sunday dinner in the South -if you add catfish. 🙂
Obviously, none of the above are remotely healthy or low carb meals, but you can make them low carb & taste delicious!
