comfort foods.

  • For a sweet tooth: chocolate, strawberry or vanilla protein shakes or mixed nuts with dried or fall's fresh fruit including apples, apricots, cranberries and peaches.
  • To satisfy savory or cheesy cravings: include cottage cheese with berries and cinnamon (a favorite fall spice), or ricotta cheese with salsa and vegetables warmed in the oven as a dip for tortilla chips.
  • Salt cravings: include vegetables and hummus, salted almonds, or feta with sun-dried tomatoes.
  • Some like it hot! (spicy cravings): include salsa blended with soft tofu as a dip for vegetable sticks or a Cajun or Tandoori chicken skewers.
Fall's cooler climate naturally invokes the need for warm and cozy comfort foods. Combining lean proteins with the season's healthy harvest of fruits and vegetables can satisfy your need for filling, appeasing fare without forsaking your healthy diet.
