5 healthy twists on your favourite treats

DH Vancouver Staff Jan 05, 2016 5:07 pm

Everyone has a dish that makes them feel all cozy and nostalgic. A dish that immediately puts a smile on their face, the second they smell it cooking.

Gooey mac and cheese, meatloaf, mashed potatoes or maybe it is as simple as chewy chocolate chip cookies. Regardless of what it is, comfort foods are notorious for being full of calories and loaded with fat – probably why they taste so good.

We’ve searched the web to find recipes that taste just like your cozy, comforting favourites and are surprisingly good for you too.

Get ready to indulge, with zero guilt.

Parmesan garlic mashed “potatoes”

Trust us, they’re so good, you’ll forget you’re eating vegetables.

Baked mac and cheese

Cheese really does make everything better.

Fettuccine alfredo

This is the perfect hardy homemade meal for a cold winter night.

Chicken Pot Pie

This warm, comforting, easy to follow recipe is bound to become a weekly staple.

Ice cream sandwiches

Better than the ones you loved as a kid. Bonus, the frozen yogurt doesn’t melt as fast and drip all over your hands.
