10 Healthy Comfort Food Recipes to Try Right Now
I know we’re all a little stressed right now with everything going on, so I think some good comfort food is exactly what a lot of us need. For me, cooking serves as a really nice distraction from what is going on. This list of recipes is great because there are a lot of vegan and vegetarian options, and you can always tweak the recipes to cater to whatever your dietary needs are, like using gluten free bread or tortillas! These recipes include healthier takes on classic comfort food, and there are options for all meals, even dessert!
