The March 2014 edition of Women’s Running magazine hits newsstands tomorrow with celebrity Stacy Keibler on the cover. Keibler is famous for WWE pro wrestling and hosting The Supermarket Superstar among other things like having a hot bod and dating George Clooney.
Apparently Kiebler dished about what her favorite comfort food is. When you think of comfort foods, you probably think mac n cheese and other cozy, carb-y, fulfilling treats that make you feel good in your belly and in your soul, but not SK:
“Her favorite dish that feeds her soul these days is a 25 calorie cup of Cauliflower Mash (her take on garlicky mash potatoes).”
Record scratch sound. What? If that is her comfort food– the meal she turns to when she needs to feel all warm and cozy, what is she eating normally? Dry spinach? The garlicky mashed potatoes that cauliflower mash is meant to imitate would be a real comfort food; cauliflower mash is just a healthy, albeit tasty, side dish. Saying a 25 calorie cup of pureed veggies is your comfort food is like saying your sinful indulgence is adding a squeeze of lime juice to your seltzer or eating a section of grapefruit. I’m all for eating healthy and everyone eating whatever the fuck they want, but this is just silly. Either she’s being dishonest or she is very confused about what makes a food comforting.
My comfort food is rice pudding, by the way. And my healthy spin on it is chia seed pudding with almond milk, cinnamon and stevia.
