We all love eating our favorite comfort foods from time to time, even if we know they’re not really healthy or nutritious. If you don’t want to feel guilty after eating your favorite ice cream, here are a few great alternatives to popular comfort food.

Swap Pasta For Spaghetti Squash

Preparing spaghetti squash instead of your usual pasta dinner is an easy way to cut up to 150 calories and it’s just as tasty and very nutritious.

Swap Ice Cream For “Nice Cream”

Ice cream is by far the most popular comfort food, even though it’s not really healthy and is packed with calories. “Nice cream” is the perfect alternative to our favorite comfort food that’s sugar-free and dairy-free, but equally tasty.

Swap Potato Chips For Nuts

Potato chips are the popular, unhealthy snack that we love eating while watching movies. Eating a handful of your favorite nuts is a much better, healthier, and nutritious option and it’s just as crunchy and delicious.

Swap Mashed Potatoes for Cauliflower Mash

Even though we love mashed potatoes, cauliflower mash is the perfect low-carb swap for this popular side dish. It’s easy to prepare and is much more nutritious than mashed potatoes.
