What I’ve Learned About Healthy Eating
Healthy Comfort Food
Yes, comfort food can be healthy. ‘Wholesome Comfort Food‘ is the theme for Sisterhood Sharing Sessions Series, Foodie Favorites. The first comfort meal or ‘Dish One‘ in the series is Foodie Favorites–Farfalle Pasta with Turkey and Marinara Sauce. This dish is made with 97% Lean Ground Turkey which has less fat than the alternative Ground Beef, making it a healthier choice.
Pasta dishes are generally thought of as ‘Comfort Food’ and are not often associated with eating healthy, as pasta is associated with pounds. Certainly, some may argue ‘Healthy Comfort Food’ that includes pasta is a bit of an oxymoron. That said, the proof is in the ingredients.
Sisterhood Sharing Sessions, Foodie Favorites–Dish One, Farfalle Pasta with Turkey and Marinara Sauce has simple, healthy ingredients. Two of the standard veggies in ‘Dish One’ are known as ‘Signature Ingredients’ for this Foodie Favorites Series, meaning either one or all vegetables can typically be found in every one-dish meal presented for the series. The chart is a list of wholesome ingredients that should be a staple food for any healthy eating plan.
