Thankfully, your cold-weather cravings don’t have to mean ditching your New Year’s resolutions. Here are four classic comfort foods made with a balanced diet in mind.
Turkey and Wild Rice Soup: Whip up this soup and have a protein-packed and hearty meal that you can enjoy throughout the workweek – and it won’t derail your goals, either.
Spicy Parmesan Meatballs with Spaghetti: There’s nothing quite as comforting as a heaping plate of spaghetti and homemade meatballs. This winter, take the healthier route and make our meatballs with high-fibre cereal instead of bread crumbs and use whole wheat pasta for a dish that is as healthy as it is satisfying.
Slow Cooker Spicy Southwest Beef and Bean Chili: Thick and chunky chili is just what everyone wants when the temperature drops. With beef and beans giving each bowl a double punch of protein, this is perfect for lunch and it will keep you full until dinnertime. Healthy hint: Look for low-sodium canned ingredients to make this recipe even better for you.
Apple-Cinnamon Butternut Squash Soup: Here’s a winter-worthy soup that blends the tartness of apples, the warmth of cinnamon and the sweetness of butternut squash for a resolution-friendly soup that doesn’t compromise on flavour.
