Our Daily Challenge … comfort (food and eating)
This is a delicious but super easy recipe. I used to mass produce these muffins with my Food Tech students for functions such as Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. These days I whip up a batch with the grandsons if I end up with some over-ripe bananas.
Comfort eating, also known as emotional eating or emotional hunger, is eating to make oneself feel happier, rather than to satisfy hunger.
It generally causes one to crave specific types of "comfort" foods. When you’re physically hungry, almost anything sounds good … including healthy stuff like vegetables. But emotional hunger craves fatty foods or sugary snacks, like these muffins, that provide an instant rush. Unfortunately, the "feel better" effect is short lived leading one to repeat the same thing again and again. If it continues for an extended time it can lead to obesity and other diet-related health issues.
