I've loved yoghurt, even plain, all my life. Check.
Fruit smoothies, angel cakes, chicken noodle soup (or any other soup for that matter). Check.
Oatmeal.... I'd prefer low-sugar whole grain cereals anytime... but there is always muesli, so, Check.
Vegetable juice? No. No unless it's tomato or maybe carrot. And even then I'd prefer nibbling on crunchy fruit veggies anytime.
And I have no idea about crock pot creations. (Ok, I googled. I don't have a slow cooker, but I might like it)

Not to whine but since when is vegetable juice or yogurt a comfort food? There weren't a lot of true comfort foods on this, I was really hoping there would be mac & cheese, mashed potatoes and pot pie too :(

I was hoping to see mac and cheese or pot pie like the other person! LOL I do like chicken noodle soup. The sugar-free syrups from davinci are awsome for adding good flavor to plain yogurt or oatmeal or any number of things! They have tons of flavors on their site. It is hard (for me anyway) to find much more than vanilla and hazelnut at the store.

Will definitely stock up on more chicken noodle soup w/low sodium, and use my crock pot for more cooking. Now with the warmer weather, will also enjoy making and drinking fruit smoothies.

I never thought about angel food cake! Or chicken soup, for that matter. Next time I'm feeling a little down, I'm going to turn to one of these healthier alternatives!

I have discovered that crock pot cooking is an easy way to make sure I have a great, healthy meal ready when I get home from work. There is no need to use oils for cooking, and I use try to combine ingredients that make for healthier meals.

The only downside is that my Jeff works from home, and he says that the delicious smells taunt him all day!

The chicken noodle soup, crock pot food and angel food cake are all good comfort foods but I really couldn't buy into the others. V8 is full of sodium and is not what I need when I need comfort. I couldn't buy into the fruit smoothies or yogurt either. When I think of comfort foods I think of food with more substance even if its healthy.

I to was in the school of thought it must be fatting so when it was first suggestted to try a V-8 JUICE,i really thought she had hit her head on something! I am a dare devil,so i decided to give it a shot. I was really pleased! I now use it alot,it truly is a confort food! I heat mine in a mug, not only is it conforting,but you get your veggies in to.

These are great ideas but veggie juice for comfort? I don't think so. I would rather see some low cal/fat mac and cheese or a healthier pot pie as was mentioned earlier in the article!!

For SHATALAIN: I make juice for my daughter and she can only handle 6-8 oz so I learned to use half the portion of fruits and keep the other halfs for the next day in the fridge. Happy smoothie making :)

The problem I have with fruit smoothies recipes - most or all of them that i have seen make a serving for 4. Being single what do I do with the other 3 servings?

I liked the article because it can help me. I really have a problem with wanting comfort food and when i take just one small piece it never stops there. So thanks for the ideas and the recipes make it a reality. I also like milk with my oatmeal. I tried skimmed milk but the taste is terrible.
