5 Healthy Versions of Comfort Foods

1. Instead of spaghetti and meatballs…

Try spaghetti squash noodles and bean balls. By replacing processed white pasta with a vegetable and taking a break from red meat by eating protein-and-fiber-rich bean and flax balls, you can turn this classic dish into a healthy one. Get the recipe here.

2. Instead of creamy mashed potatoes…

Try cauliflower mashed “potatoes.” Mash up cauliflower with some cheese to fill you right up. Get the recipe here.

3. Instead of ice cream…

Try one ingredient banana “ice cream.” Seriously, this works. All you need is a frozen banana, but feel free to add ingredients like peanut butter or chocolate chips. Get the recipe here.
