My new comfort foods

Growing up with ramen and eggs as a go to food when sick (or not) leaves me in the lurch when I'm sick today.

I have a cold. I'm not willing to eat 500 calories of noodles fried in unhealthy fat these days.

Pick your favorite vegetable soup, homemade or not. Simmer it up, then add two or three eggs and poach them, right there in the soup.

Eat. Feel better.

Tomato soup and grilled cheese is a bigger challenge...

What's your comfort food? What do you miss? What's your healthy (or healthier) replacement?


  1. 1/4 C. cornmeal, cooked with 1C. water and salt like polenta, in microwave safe bowl. 30 sec at a time. Add egg on top and cook another 30 sec or so, take out and smother in salsa, and cheese if you want. Good for a cold or just miserable.

  2. I'm a big fan of polenta. Lately I've been making something like it from masa rather than cornmeal. Good stuff, and it seems to have a lot less "stuff" added than most bags of cornmeal.
