Our Best Clean Comfort Food Recipes

What is comfort food, anyway?  Is there an actual definition?  Do some foods qualify as comfort food and others don’t?  Well, here’s what Google says:

So, basically, anything that gives you “comfort”!  That’s pretty broad.

When I think of “comfort food”, I think of Southern favorites that aren’t so healthy like Mac & Cheese and Fried Chicken.  Of course, since getting healthy, some of those things just don’t fit in with my lifestyle.  At least not the way they were made when I was growing up.

CAN COMFORT FOOD BE HEALTHY?

As it turns out though, MANY of my favorite comfort foods have healthier versions that fit in just fine with my “clean eating” lifestyle and they taste JUST AS GOOD or BETTER!  I am not going to tell you that they are low calorie or low carb, but we don’t believe in low calorie around here anyway.  When you eat REAL food, restricting calories to 1200 isn’t necessary at all.
