Can Comfort Food Be Healthy Too?


Can Comfort Food Be Healthy Too?

By Caitlin Boyle

Can comfort food be healthy too? There’s something about February that makes me want to wrap a fleece blanket around me, sip a cup of steaming tea, and eat rich, heavy, buttery comfort food. It’s too cold to do anything else! But alas, one cannot repeat this ritual too many times without throwing all of those healthy New Year’s intentions out the window.

Unless … you’re noshing on healthy comfort food!

Oxymoron you say?

Not at all. It is possible to make comfort food taste delicious and still be good for your waistline and your teeth. Just check out these fabulous recipes from some of my favorite foodie bloggers.

Creamy Avocado Spaghetti Squash Pasta by Angela of

This recipe uses nutrient-rich and delicious spaghetti squash strings instead of processed white pasta. Starchy, refined carbohydrates like fettuccine can fill you up with empty calories and do a number on your teeth. Plus, one whole cup of spaghetti squash delivers just 42 calories and only 4 grams of sugar.

OMG. Pancakes! by Tina of

These pancakes — which really are oh-my-goodness delicious — are made without gluten, for those of you who have given up wheat. They use almond meal or flour and almond butter as the base, and are packed with protein thanks to the eggs.
