It’s that delightful time of year when the crisp autumn air draws us back to warm comfort foods like casseroles, homemade macaroni & cheese and grilled cheese with tomato soup. These classic fall foods warm up our bodies and prepare us for winter. The base ingredient of many comfort foods is cheese, cream cheese and noodles. None of which can be touted as health foods. However, all of these ingredients when included in the right amount can make a delicious healthy meal.
Over the next month we’ll be highlighting healthy, and organic, ways to make your favorite comfort foods. Mac and cheese can be made balanced and healthy. Each traditional dish will include vegetables, whole grains and of course a healthy amount of cheese and cream cheese. My hope is that you will find fresh inspiration to make your favorite comfort dish healthy for your body and soul.
