4 Comfort Foods That Won’t Pack the Pounds

Rich, familiar dishes warm us on the inside and out. However, often these favorites are loaded with calories that can cause unwanted weight gain.

If you crave comfort foods, but want to remain health-conscious, there’s a way to enjoy them: swap out a few ingredients and use some alternative techniques. This way, you can savor your favorite foods and stay on track.

Sports and wellness dietician Emily Edison, who also owns Momentum Nutrition and Fitness in Seattle, Washington, has become an expert on making comfort foods healthy. Her advice: “Change only one ingredient at a time. Like any good research experiment, you only want to change one variable. Then if it flops, you know where the problem lived. And, accept progress without perfection. Sometimes it’s not possible to re-make a recipe to the delicious perfection it was with two cups of heavy cream and two cups of butter. But, your heart will thank you.”
