After a long and stressful day, there's probably one food in particular that you are drawn to. There's something about that dish that is sure to bring back all kinds of positive memories and set your nervous system at ease. It goes way beyond simply filling your gut. In fact, just the thought of this particular food tends to bring a smile to your face.

Some people are drawn to sugary snacks that cause a rush and bring back fond memories of trips to the candy store when they were young. Others prefer the starchy goodness of carbohydrates. Whether it's potatoes, pasta, or bread, these heavy meals tend to ground us and bring on a feeling of solidity. Some are drawn to breakfast foods, some to late-night snacks, and others are drawn to the kinds of snacks that you can pick up at your local convenience store.

We'll ask about your preferences in food, how you tend to handle stress and details about your lifestyle in general. When it's all said and done, we're pretty sure that we'll serve up your favorite.
