Forget what you currently think about comfort foods! Winter warming comfort foods don’t have to involve high calories and zero nutrients. There are PLENTY of delicious, warming, healthy foods that will give you energy, a dose of nutrients and a buzz to keep you happy during cold winter months. Throughout January – with the return to work and the post-Christmas blues – there is no better time to start focusing on healthier comfort foods.
With the world now posting about their ‘healthy’ dinners and their #Fitspo on social media, there are so many ways you can get your inspiration for good, healthy foods. My instagram has been FILLED with winter warming ideas and quick fix meals that don’t take forever to prepare. I also try and ensure that my instagram is filled with REALISTIC foods, so that people actually feel confident that they can make them. Head over to my instagram if you’d like some ideas from my page and check out some of my favourite sample ideas below too.
Otherwise….this month I have written a piece for Harper’s Bazaar (see here for other work I’ve written for Harper’s Bazaar too) all about my healthy comfort foods to include right now! The article also has plenty of top tips for healthier cooking too including using plenty of vegetables, trying out meat free days and getting to grips with herbs and spices.
Check out the article here and let me know if you have any ideas you want to add to my list too – always happy to take more food ideas from readers.
