Comfort and Casseroles
January…the heart of winter; and if you’re like me, all you want is steamy, warm comfort foods. But if you’re also like me, you’ve just made a vow to eat healthier, maybe to lose weight, maybe to have more energy, or maybe to help avoid health problems. And let’s face it, sometimes those hearty, yummy comfort foods don’t fit in with the attempt to live a healthier lifestyle. So I went in search of some lighter fare that should still fill that craving for cozy meals on a chilly night.
If you’re watching carbs or on a Keto-type diet, there’s actually lots of options out there. Check out these high-protein, low carb delights:
Reuben Casserole (from KetoWize)
Philly Cheesesteak Casserole (from Whole Lotta Yum)
Mushroom Cheeseburger Casserole (from Savory Tooth)
White Keto Lasagna (from Joy Filled Eats)
If you are on, or transitioning to a plant-based diet, here’s some yummy veggie options for you:
Vegan Enchilada Casserole (from Sweet Simple Vegan)
Cheesy Vegan Cauliflower Casserole (from Vegan Hugs)
Broccoli and Wild Rice Casserole (from Forks Over Knives)
And for those traditional creamy casseroles and comfort foods you just can’t live without, try these healthier versions:
Healthy Green Bean Casserole (from A Sweet Pea Chef)
Healthy Shepherd’s Pie (from SkinnyTaste)
Protein Packed Healthy Mac ’n Cheese (from Eating Bird Food)
Stay warm and eat well this winter!
