Diet-Friendly Comfort Foods

We've made these American classics healthier and diet friendly so that you can indulge and stay slim.
Everyone has one—that special dish that immediately makes you feel good. Unfortunately, comfort foods are notorious diet derailers: high in calories and saturated fat. But don’t despair: we’ve lightened your favorite recipes so they can fit within your calorie goals, while keeping the traditional flavors intact.

Loaded Twice-Baked Potatoes
Potatoes are one of the great comfort foods, especially when stuffed with a satisfying mixture of lean ground beef and broccoli florets plus reduced-fat sour cream and Cheddar cheese. Add a tossed salad and you have a healthy and hearty meal that will leave you feeling good........

Oven-Fried Chicken
Great news—crunchy, flavorful fried chicken can be healthy. We marinate skinless chicken in buttermilk to keep it juicy. A light coating of flour, sesame seeds and spices, misted with olive oil, forms an appealing crust during baking. And with only 7 grams of fat per serving rather than the 20 in typical fried chicken—that is good news......

The addition of richly flavored dried mushrooms and the whole-grain goodness of bulgur increases the vitamins and minerals and decreases the saturated fat of this meatloaf. The loaf is free-form, rather than baked in a loaf pan, which means more delicious, browned crust. This recipe is large enough to feed a big group or, even better, have leftovers for a cold sandwich the next day.....
