Healthier Comfort Foods

Healthier Comfort Foods

Struggling to stay on track as the holidays approach? We’ve got you covered! Nourish Snacks founder, Joy Bauer, created lightened-up versions of a few favorite comfort foods so you can savor the season without overdoing it.  We suggest you hit the market, start cooking and eat happy.

Creamed Spinach

A certifiable “superfood,” spinach is packed with beta-carotene and vitamin C, both of which help keep your skin, eyes and blood vessels healthy. If that’s not enough, Popeye’s favorite leafy green also happens to be a rich vegetarian source of iron.

Try this slim-style Creamed Spinach recipe, clocking in at just 110 calories per serving. #whatadeal

Spinach Artichoke Dip

We all know spinach is good for us, but artichokes deserve some of the glory, too. Aside from great taste, artichokes are a fabulous source of fiber, providing about 10 grams per cup. They’re also a good source of folate, which helps your cells regenerate and protects your ticker. 

Try Joy’s guilt-free Spinach Artichoke Dip with a batch of crunchy, colorful veggies for dunking.

Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie has a pretty significant health attribute—pumpkin. The delicious dessert provides beta-carotene for vibrant skin and healthy joints, as well as digestion-friendly fiber and heart-smart potassium. Plus, it tends to be lower in calories, fat and sugar than its apple and pecan rivals.

Try these Mini Maple Pumpkin Pies for just 180 calories each.
