Soothe your body and mind with comfort foods

Soothe your body and mind with comfort foods

We all look and feel our best when we're at ease. Sometimes making time for relaxation isn't easy, but in order to reduce the impact of stress on our mind and bodies, it's essential for us to find some way to stay centered.

Many experts believe that comfort food cravings may be our body's way of telling us we need to cut back our stress levels. Unfortunately, many "comforting" foods are high in calories and fat. The trick is to find low-fat solutions to help satisfy cravings and relieve our feelings of stress.

Try this Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes recipe for comforting-yet-healthy satisfaction:
· 12 oz potatoes
· ½ sweet onion
· ½ tablespoon butter
· ½ cup low-fat buttermilk

Peel and quarter potatoes, then simmer them in 1 inch of cold water for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, peel and dice the sweet onion and cook in butter over low heat, stirring frequently, until golden. Drain potatoes and return them to the pot. Mash potatoes, and stir in shallots and buttermilk. Season to taste.

After you've satisfied you're comfort craving, complete your relaxation experience by soaking in a warm bubble bath. Try wearing a soothing masque like La Therapie Dermasque Purifiant and lighting some vanilla incense from Mandara Spa.
