Comfort Food

Monday Workout: 1 mile walk and abs

After school Colby and I walked around for about a 18 minute easy walk (1 mile) to catch up on our day and compare crazy kid stories from our school day.  Later I did planks, the sprinter and some other crunches to get some ab work in since I won’t be able to go to BodyPump tomorrow night.  😦 I have been eating very well lately and I continue to plan ahead for breakfast and lunch the night before.  I have been avoiding dairy at all costs to keep myself from having another stomach attack like I did last weekend.


This past Sunday I wasn’t feeling so great and I think it was from being so busy during the week.  I was in the mood for something comforting, easy on my stomach and warm and I remembered a recipe that I saw on this lady’s website…


Mama Pea knows what’s up and I have loved every recipe I’ve tried so far! I decided to try her Chickpeas and Dumplings recipe from her blog.  The only thing I would change next time is using the correct flour mix. Mama Pea uses half wheat / half white and I used all wheat. I also made my dumplings a little too big and they took longer to cook.  I was very happy with how this easy recipe turned out and thought it was delicious!

Warm and doughy. I tried to make it look pretty for you… I tried!

What is your idea of comfort food? What are your favorite meals?

  1. Mmm I love dumplings, but my absolutely favorite comfort food will always be macaroni and cheese – cliche, I know. Thankfully, I’ve become a psuedo expert at making healthier vegan versions that are just as delicious!

  2. Being super busy can take a toll on your body and mind. So it’s a good thing you took a rest day!

    I ultimate comfort foods are California burritos and meatloaf. Those two look really weird next to each other, but its true!

  3. I can’t say I’ve tried chickpeas but that looks yummy.
    Comfort food to me is mac and cheese, pot pie or soup.

  4. Comfort food is Chili. I have it on my menu for this week because it’s chilling down enough to enjoy warm yummy food that makes me feel happy.

  5. And you succeeded in making it look yummy! One of my favorite comfort foods is chili and I made it yesterday for dinner! And be proud, Holly–it was veggie chili! It was absolutely far more delish than any meat chili I’ve had AND the hubby liked it too! 🙂

  6. Mac & Cheese is my comfort food. Always makes me feel better 🙂

  7. Mashed potatoes & gravy are my favorite comfort food. ❤

  8. That looks really good! 🙂 My favorite comfort food is macaroni and cheese or mashed potatoes. Yum!
