Hello, winter! Hello, cold windy days made for staying curled up under a pillowy comforter. This time of year has me craving those homestyle comfort foods that make me feel all warm and cozy. In their original forms, they are almost always high-carb, high-sugar, animal-based, and saddled with gluten. I mean, really–when you think about it, shouldn’t it be called discomfort food?
So how do I beat the winter blues that usually follow a binge of comfort food? Re-create them free of gluten, animal-products, and refined sugar, of course!
This roundup of 24 soul-satisfying comfort foods is perfect for getting you through even the worst possible blizzard–without the remorse of unhealthy eating. Your mind and body will thank you (and so will your belly!)
