When I'm in the mood for something comforting and filling, this is my go-to meal.
I bake a sweet potato in the microwave, split it open, add a cup of chili and finish it off with a dollop of plain greek yogurt. This meal is not only super satisfying, but full of fiber and protein. This should keep me full through my run in a few hours.
If I don't have homemade chili in my fridge, I use a store bought vegetarian chili. I usually use Trader Joe's but today I tried a new one : Health Valley's Spicy Vegetarian Black Bean Chili. My only complaint is that it's really not spicy! It has a slight kick, but not spicy enough for me.
This morning I had another one of my favorite comfort foods, a bowl of oatmeal, as a snack. A serving of oats made with water, half of a pear, cinnamon and a few sliced almonds.
What are some of your favorite comfort foods?
