Raw Comfort Food ?

Do you have any raw comfort foods? Be honest. If you didn't grow up in a Raw Food family the chances of a raw comfort food imprinted upon your early food choices is remote. Fried Chicken, Pecan Pie, Eggs, bacon, Toast etc etc. You probably have a list of your own... Emotional foods are powerful imprints that may effect our attempts to change a diet.

One of the reasons many adults may have such a difficult time with a Raw Food Diet is "Food Imprinting" We learn our food choices and favorites early in life usually between birth and six years. Our first tastes, textures, smells and appearance of food were important but also important is the attitude and emotions of our parents regarding certain types of food. Emotion plays a large part in our food imprints and plays a large part in creating a 'comfort food"

Here is a video that makes sense regarding how we "learn" food. More importantly how parents can introduce future " Healthy Comfort Food" to their children.

Video 1 explains how food is imprinted early in life and dispels some myths about how children feel about "Healthy" foods.
