Comfort Foods Under 300 Calories



Tips to Make Recipes Healthier:

- Pick leaner cuts of meat and remove visible fat.

- Serve with a side salad to boost vitamins and fiber intake.

- Fill your plate with veggies! Vegetables contain essential nutrients, antioxidants, minerals, folate, potassium - all good things for your body that you need more of in wintertime or when you're feeling under the weather.

- Swap out an ingredient such as full cream for low fat milk (e.g., use skim milk instead). This will make recipes healthier while not compromising on flavor too much. Going lighter on dairy can also help people who have lactose intolerance or are vegan/vegetarian! It's worth taking note if this is something that affects you personally so that it can help you enjoy your favorite foods.

- Reduce the amount of sugar or sweetener in a recipe, or substitute it for other natural ingredients (e.g., honey instead of white granulated sugar) to reduce daily intake and prevent tooth decay!

- Use low sodium sauces when cooking so that recipes are healthier without compromising on flavor too much - salt can be saved for seasoning at the table if desired.

Do you want to have a taste of all the good stuff but are afraid that your diet will suffer? Look no further! All these Comfort Foods Under 300 Calories, with their simple ingredients and quick preparation time, make for an easy way to enjoy lunch.
