Comfort food thread

I have not been eating right lately and its catching up with me.
I went to the bulk store and bought some real floor and baking stuff and made a loaf of old fashion potato bread.

3 cups of good bread floor.
3/4 tea spoon of salt. ( to taste I go a little light on salt )
Spoon full of butter ( about 2 tab spoon ).
One boiled potato mashed up and I used just enough water to boil it to moisten the dough ( eyeballed this maybe a cup ??? )
Some yeast ( perhaps 1/2 a packet again I eyeball this )
Spoon full of spray malt ( eyeball again about 2 tab spoons of dry malt extract like you would use for bagels, or brewing beer. I avoid sugar where I can )
Hand need 50 times and let rise, kneed a second time in an hour and form loaf for final rise.

Bake at 375 for about 1/2 hour until ready.

Very easy bread, that’s it…
Makes good toast, keeps well.
I also make a nice rye ( for myself wife does not rye or sour dough )

My wife is an awful cook, she boils everything or uses a lot of process foods.
So what are your meal plans and simple recipes for healthy eating

hi wallis i have running the same problem, too much processed foods and veg oil fried potatos caught up too me when i caught the flue bug end of winter, Now i am trying too stick too fruit and vegies non cooked as posible. I have been tested blood for vitmen D Defient, so eating salmon about eavery 2 or three days, There are a few good alternitive medicen type docs on youtube. Proper Food is are best meds type thiery.

It is amazing what a deficiency can do. I had some thyroid problems several years back. The doctors wanted to put me on replacement hormone drugs. I set out to use supplements and vitamins instead. After a time I was able to heal the problem completely and don’t have any trouble at all. But I had to eat a lot of sea food and lay off the sugar and stimulants.

I have a pound of ground beast sitting in the fridge and need to plan something for supper.
It will probably be a meat loaf.
I think I will use some rolled oats egg red and green pepper fried onions and garlic with some mustard ketchup and seasonings in it.
Nothing fancy ( see what the wife says before I do that ).
Probably just make a salad to go with it

It does not take much to throw you system a little wonky by bad eating habits.
Breakfast today is some red river and coffee.
Maybe a nice piece of that potato bread toasted with some peanut butter…

I should go easy on the coffee in hind sight too.
Billy reminds me how those stimulants can upset the natural rhythm of the body.

Meat loaf turned out mushy.
Its Jenny Jones fault…

I think I added too much milk but I will try again.
