Comfort Food, Redefined

I'm as guilty as the next person for seeking comfort in foods that don't always make me feel very great later (I've had quite a toast & butter addiction lately).  Shooting this story for the 'Eating Wisely' section of Yoga Journal  definitely got me thinking about what I grab out of my pantry.  Tamar Alder, author of "An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace", makes some excellent points here and I'm so glad I got to take the lovely photos to go along with her story!
