Sometimes, sticking to a healthy diet plan can be difficult. You want to eat the right things, but your favorite comfort foods seem to be out there, calling your name. We’ve got a solution to make sticking to your plan a little easier. Check out these remakes of traditional comfort food, created to keep you from feeling deprived while you’re working toward your goals. There are seven of them so that you can have one every day of the week!
- Spanakopita Loaded Potatoes: If you like twice-baked potatoes, you’re sure to love these. Spinach, feta, garlic, oregano, and mashed potatoes are stuffed back into potato shells for a delicious accompaniment to grilled chicken and a leafy green salad.
- Chicken Tortilla Casserole: Made with eggplant, corn, zucchini, and just the right amount of cheese, this healthy twist on a Mexican-inspired casserole is excellent for serving the whole family. If you are not trying to feed a crowd? You’ll have delicious leftovers!
- Montreal-Style Hanger Steak and Sweet Potato Frites: Frites is just the French word for fries, and this recipe will have you feeling like you’re in a French bistro. Swapping sweet potatoes for regular fries ups the nutritional value, and yogurt-blue cheese sauce is healthier than compound butter.
- Collards and Portobello Grilled Cheese: What’s more delicious than a gooey grilled cheese sandwich? Add in meaty portobello mushrooms, and you’ve got a hearty meal. The sautéed collards add not only flavor but also nutrients and fiber.
- Creamy Chicken, Brussels Sprouts, and Mushrooms One Pot Pasta: This pasta recipe is so easy, you’ll only need one pot. The chicken and vegetables are cooked with the pasta, and the water remains in the pot instead of being drained away. This leaves behind starch, making the pasta creamy and delicious, even though there’s no cream.
- Flank Steak Gyro with Quick Pickles: Flank steak is leaner than traditional gyro meat. When it’s seasoned with flavorful oil, broiled, and topped with quick-pickled vegetables and tzatziki sauce, it’s so delicious that you won’t notice the missing fat. Best of all, this Greek-style sandwich is quick and easy to make.
- Kielbasa and Cabbage Soup: Looking for a little bit of Eastern European flavor? This soup fits the bill. Traditionally made with sauerkraut, this recipe uses fresh cabbage to keep sodium levels in check. It’s a healthier option, and you still get the sauerkraut in the form of a delicious garnish.
