Comfort food is often what we reach for to get us through the cold, dark winter nights. We love them because they make us feel good, but they are often high in calories and low in nutrients.
The good news is they don’t have to be!
We’ve compiled our favourite comfort foods that are delicious and healthy, and sure to satisfy your winter cravings.
Soups are a great option for lunch or dinner, or even an afternoon snack for hungry kids. They are also a fantastic way to get more veg into your day. One bowl of our vegie pasta soup meets 50% of your daily recommended vegetable intake! Or try our red lentil soup – easy to freeze leftovers for a quick meal and packs three serves of vegetables per bowl!
