Did Romero become a chef?

I have been known to eat my own body weight in those foods, but I never thought they were healthy.  That's kind of the point

Aren't the majority of comfort foods unhealthy?
/that's why they're comfort foods
 
2013-11-11 08:46:11 AM
Seriously? Comfort foods aren't supposed to be healthy. Even with our generous idiot population, I really don't think anyone DID think that pie, chowder or lasagna was healthy.

But, I've said too much.

Most of the fat in chicken pot pie is from the crust. I make mine with phyllo dough instead. It actually works rather well.

Eesh, yet another idiot counting grams of fat like it's still 1970.

loads of carbs, calories and sugar.

Because sugar isn't a carbohydrate, which doesn't provide calories?

Don't quit your day job, Sherlock.

One can of Campbell's Chunky New England Clam Chowder has 26 grams of fat, 460 calories and 1,780 milligrams.


GASP!  It contains milligrams!?  I almost put that shiat in my mouth!

By the way, why does sodium get all demonized by being in milligrams but the fat above is not written as "contains 26,000 milligrams of fat!"  I guess being paid to write an article about something that contains nearly two grams of salt would just sound silly.

A friend of mine in college trying to gain weight (the dude made a pencil look obese despite eating like an elephant -- just one of those metabolisms) once tried to consume a cup of heavy cream, about 1200 calories in a single cup.  Not only did he not finish, he didn't want to eat for the rest of the day.  Probably finished with about 800 calories in him.  That's barely above starvation levels.

Not only are the health risks of heavy fats vastly overstated, and this sounds crazy I know, but it's difficult to gain weight eating something that kills your appetite*.  Much easier to gain weight eating stuff that keeps you hungry even after 3k-4k calories.  In sweets, that's mostly the sugar.

*If you let it, anyway.  Building up a tolerance to satiety isn't proof of the food being bad; it's a bad habit.

Omnis_evil_twin: By the way, why does sodium get all demonized by being in milligrams but the fat above is not written as "contains 26,000 milligrams of fat!"


Because salt is more potent.  Fat is part of food bulk so it's going to be measured in grams.  If you consumed 26g of salt in one sitting I'd send you to a hospital.

And it's not like salt is benign at high doses.  Its ties to hypertension are overstated, but the Japanese consume salt in bulk and stomach cancer is so common there that they test everyone over a certain age annually for it.

The work cafeteria has Salisbury steak and mashed potatoes for lunch today. The lunch I brought to work has now become dinner.

Rick Bayless has a place in there. Reading up on and cooking some of his recipes, they're at least reasonably healthy. And simple, yet highly effective!

My grandparents ate real food.
Real cream in their coffee
Real pecan pie
Real butter in their mashed potatoes
Real cheese in their macaroni
Real creamed corn
Real chops, steaks and chicken
Bacon fat left over from breakfast flavored many side dishes
Homemade biscuits every morning
Do I have to go on?

The difference is they ate  real food. Not modern 'whatever the hell they're selling these days' 'food'. A distinction author Colleen Casey doesn't address.

I'm still fuzzy on what exactly 'comfort' food is. Is there an uncomfortable food? I'm sure there is, but that guy you know from Pakistan might think Hummus and pita chips are the bomb, while others, not so much.

Zizzowop: I'm still fuzzy on what exactly 'comfort' food is. Is there an uncomfortable food?


"Comfort" food is anything a bunch of self-loathing women (usually women, but throw in some male bodybuilders) with shiat for brains in a ceaseless quest to both lose weight and make it as miserable as possible decided tastes good for obvious biological reasons.  Their idea of a "healthy" meal is a salad of iceberg lettuce topped with maybe chunks of bleached CAFO chicken breast and a "lite" dressing in an effort to keep the meal calories in double digits.  The obsessions with food and self-image follow same hypocritical and irrational fervor as creepy religious cults that preach abstinence until pretty much everyone is crazed for sex well beyond the point of infidelity and resort to beating or molesting their children, depending on what dysfunctional phase they're in.  These biatches count calories and grams like every one is an enemy, but they can't resist the body's urges to stay alive (and compensate for their bouts of self-induced starvation) so they binge until they puke and then start the depression-abstinence-abuse-purge cycle all over again. Then they write articles about the evils of delicious food they're terrified of eating so that they don't have to put up with others enjoying life around them.  Those of us among humanity that don't try to cheat, savor real food and eat in moderation do OK without having to count anything beyond getting recipe measurements right.

As long as I'm blindly speculating, I'll bet you dollars to donuts (mmm, donuts) the kunt who wrote this basically listed her favorite foods and demonized them to reinforce an unhealthy mental cycle.  Probably consumed everything on the list in the past week, gained 2 pounds and freaked.

Low carb and I can eat these comfort foods (slightly altered).

1. Pecan pie - yes, but no sugar and no AP flour. Use eggs, cream cheese etc.
2. Starbucks' White Hot Chocolate - since this is store specific stuff I don't know. But, hot dark chocolate with 85% or more cacao. Or if you want white, just use cacao butter. The ultimate is 100% cacao (baking bars) in heavy cream - bitter but creamy!
3. Chowders - Just made seafood chowder last week. Liberal amounts of heavy cream. Counted the calories and it came out to be 1200cals for the meal. Couldn't eat dinner that day because I was so full. Also, no AP flour to thicken the soup.
4. Pot pie - no AP flour but cook it in ramekins or tiny casserole dishes to make them a pie. Use cheese and sour cream instead of AP flour.
5. Cheesy baked pasta - no pasta, substitute pasta with eggplant slices, smooshed cauliflower or other non-starchy veggies

Also, I don't care about salt. Use as much as I want.

While you guys hate yourself after this comfort food, I'm enjoying them on low carb.

The best part is I'm not getting fatter eating this. Some would say my heart is getting clogged but the cholesterol numbers are excellent, My blood pressure is in the low end of the normal range (doctor says blood pressure of a teenager).

The only downside is that I have to cook all these myself and it can take an hour or two to fix up. Prepping, cooking and clean up takes up a lot of time.

Uncomfortable food - skim milk and cereal.

Also, hummus is not Pakistani food. It is a middle eastern food. Pakistani cuisine is close to Indian cuisine but less vegetariany.

You would think something as simple as Salisbury steak and mashed potatoes would be really hard to mess up. Apparently my cafeteria crew love a challenge.
