  • 50+ Comfort Foods The Whole Family Will Wolf Down

There are times when you just want to eat and not think so much about the calories, sugar, carbs, fat — foods that would leave you utterly satisfied.

Yep, we call them comfort foods — and for us SAHMs, these are foods that we eat together with our kids, who don’t mind the calories, or the family as a whole.

But for people on diet, the time when they just want to eat any food they like is called a cheat day. So, if today is your cheat day, well, you’re in luck because we have over 50 comfort foods to make your cheat day the best one ever.

While for SAHMs, our choices of comfort foods for you will make bonding times with your family more fun and exciting. So, pick one (or all lol!) that you want to make for the whole family to enjoy.
