Cookbook Giveaway: Get Your Comfort Food Fix

By: Kirsten Vala

Yes, you can eat healthy without depriving yourself of lasagna, meatloaf, chicken pot pie and other comfort food favorites that are so appealing this time of year. Ellie Krieger, host of Healthy Appetite, shows you how in her latest cookbook, Comfort Food Fix. With some simple substitutions and a few healthy tricks, Ellie serves up 150 classic, hearty dishes full of flavor and low in calories and fat. She includes full nutritional information for every recipe, along with a before and after, classic vs. made over, comparison (classic lasagna has 800 calories per serving, while Ellie’s weighs in at only 550). So go ahead and indulge in your favorite foods, guilt-free.

Give a few of Ellie’s made-over classics a try:
