Ok, let’s be honest: comfort food is probably one of everyone’s favorite things. The warm carbs, the delicious, melty cheese–it’s all so…comforting. And now that it’s winter, there’s nothing I’d rather have in front of a warm fire than a big bowl of cheesy pasta and a glass of red wine. Unfortunately, bingeing on mac & cheese and mashed potatoes isn’t healthy. Last week, I satisfied my craving with some deliciously cheesy spaghetti squash and from then on, I’ve been inspired and interested to find more healthy alternatives to classic comfort food favorites. So I’ve come up with this great collection of recipes that are both healthy (ok, semi-healthy) and tasty (full-tasty). Just click the link for recipe info. These healthy recipes were all found on Pinterest – where I’ve been spending the better half of my days lately.
