Salad is not comfort food.


  

     I don't care what anyone says, when you're not feeling well, are down in the dumps, or just plain cold, salad does not make you feel better.  I'm suffering from the first two today and I yearn for a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup, spaghetti and meatballs or a hot pizza.  I'm trying to get creative with what foods I can use in place of those fan faves.  The Low-Sodium Progresso soups are decent and zero Weight Watchers Points per serving (1/2 a can).  This week I also baked chicken and lightly sauteed some veggies.  I'm planning to throw them into some low-sodium vegetable broth to make my own chicken and veggie soup.  I've also made Gluten-free pasta (it's not that bad, I swear), combined with marinara sauce and chicken meatballs that my mom and dad turned me on to.  They got them at Costco.

     There are some good options for healthy comfort foods but it does take some thought and some preparation.  I tend to associate CHEESE with comfort - macaroni and cheese, pizza, lasagna, grilled cheese, etc.  but I really need to veer away from those things if I'm going to be successful this year.

Any recommendations on low-fat comfort foods.  I'm looking for any of the following:

vegetarian options
meals that have no wheat
meals that do not combine protein and carbs

Thanks!

Not sure if this fits your bill, but I really like the multigrain pilaf at TJ's (comes in a microwaveable pouch)...healthy (I think!) and filling. :)

If I want cheesy pasta I like to sauté a bunch of mixed vegetables, ESP zuccinni and carrots, and then top with good spagetti sauce. Ramon makes good homemade sauce, I like that. Then I had a big scoop of cottage cheese and mix it all up. The trick is to have a garlic heavy sauce and not sweet.

Thanks Joanne-I think I actually had that pilaf in my freezer. It was really good and filling! HOT MOM-I'm not a cottage cheese fan but I bet if it's mixed up in the pasta it would give it good texture and feel like I'm getting some mozzarella. Thanks for that idea. Ramon rocks :)
