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.

I love fruit smoothies when I have a sweet tooth. I usually use 100% fruit juice instead of yogurt since I can't have a lot of dairy. It works great in keeping me away from the candy

I used to love to get hot Chai tea lattes, but they have way too many calories. I found Chai tea bags in the grocery store, so in the evening I brew a big mug of it, and add Splenda and sugar-free French Vanilla creamer to it. It seems like a treat to me.

I make the homemade oatmeal, add coconut oil, ground flax seed ,cinnamon, and sometimes walnuts, and dried cranberries.....................surprising
ly good......I rarely add milk and never use sugar... good for the heart and thyroid......

I have oatmeal daily with fruit, cinnamon and a splash of sugar free hazelnut creamer. If I have skim milk I add that too. I also mix in Oat Bran with the oatmeal in the storage container to get extra fiber.

these are good suggestions. something else than can be really
comforting is sugar free or low cal hot-chocolate. hot tea with lemon
& splenda is nice too.

I like the Old Fashion Oat Meal but I add 1 Tbls of chunky peanut butter to have some protein with the carbs. I didn't think I would ever be able to eat oat meal without sugar but the peanut butter adds just enough sweet to make it enjoyable.

I eat Quaker "Lower Sugar" Oatmeal, the maple and brown sugar flavor... I also add a pack of splenda to satisfy my sweet tooth even more (the oatmeal has 5 grams sugar itself). Heat it up with a half cup of nonfat or lowfat milk and you've got yourself an under 200 calorie treat that's low in sugar and has a fair amount of protein. You can easily add a sprinkle of raisins or sliced bananas to make it a complete breakfast, remember to factor in the extra calories though... Enjoy!

you say to drink V8...I understand it is loaded with sodium..fluid retention??? I also think that oatmeal tastes terrible without sugar and milk...any suggestions??

I agree that Yogurt with fruit and Oatmeal are healthy comfort foods. These are my two Favorites, although I eat Stoneyfarms O'Soy yogurt with the fruit at the bottom. For oatmeal I love the steel cut type which takes a little longer to cook. I add raisens while it's still cooking and some slivered almonds at the end. Wonderful texture and comfort, comfort, comfort.
