16 Fall Comfort Foods Get a Diet-Friendly Makeover

When the season changes from summer to fall your skin can experience havoc. Whether the cold, windy climate makes you feel uneasy or ill. Windy climate of fall gives your skin a shock or worsens existing damage of summer. You should change over your daily diet routine. You may like Sugary oatmeal for breakfast or Creamy soup for lunch.

Veggie Mac and Cheese

It’s an old child food, but the carvings hit as an adult. In addition you can use Spinach, tomatoes, peas, and broccoli.

Shepard’s Pie

The trick with making this one healthier is to mix healthier stuff like cauliflower or parsnips and fill the inside with lots of veggies. You can still keep the full-fat butter and a little cheese as exceptions.

Green Bean Casserole

Family Thanksgivings shouldn’t be completed without this classic casserole. The cream of mushroom soup base and crunchy fried onion topper make it an unhealthy choice. Opt for a low sodium soup, throw in extra fresh mushrooms to make your own crunchy onion topping.

Spaghetti and Meatballs

I think nothing is more comforting as a big bowl of spaghetti and homemade meatballs with tomato sauce. Choose the healthier route and opt for whole-wheat or spaghetti squash as an alternative of pasta. try turkey as a substitution for classic beef for meatball, avoid any added preservatives, sugar, and sodium in the sauce.

Mashed Potatoes

Instead of overload on calories with classic mashed potatoes, try an alternative that’s a bit lower in carbohydrates and much higher in protein and antioxidants. This mix of mashed cannellini beans and cauliflower would be great as classic mashed potatoes.

Meatloaf

The mix of pork and beef is a classic meatloaf but not the healthiest choice of protein. Use ground turkey and oatmeal as substitute of them. Using oatmeal instead of white bread reduces the fat and increase the fiber.

Roast Chicken

A whole roast chicken straight from the oven is more comforting than many other things. It’s easy to make your own perfect bird at home with extra veggies and less fat.

Baked Beans

Baked beans are a great source of protein and potassium. Try the healthier version of liquid smoke flavor instead of bacon.

Pizza

Pizza is an unhealthy we all know it. It is full off fat and calories. Pizza can be a healthy meal but not those greasy pies hanging out in the local pizza parlor. Try a veggie pizza instead of mutton or beef. Get strong-flavored cheese so the pie requires less of the melty stuff to get full flavor.
