We all need a little extra comfort some days and one of my favorite ways to love on myself and others is through a healthy, comforting meal. I am a firm believer that food is a true love language. Taking the time to make a home cooked meal for someone, or yourself, is a great way to show that you care.

Unfortunately a lot of traditional comfort food is made with unhealthy ingredients that don’t actually end up being so comforting. The last thing you want is to feel bloated or uncomfortable after eating a meal.

So, to help you out, I’ve compiled a list of twenty healthy comfort food recipes that are made with real food ingredients! These recipes are cozy, satisfying, and will bring a smile to anyone’s face. The best part is that they are made with delicious healthy  ingredients that will also leave you feeling great!

To make things easy for you, I’ve broken down the list into a few categories so that you can easily find what you need! Start with satisfying breakfasts, move on to cozy soups (these are great for lunch!), and then comforting dinners. I’ve also included a special section with recipes that I think would be perfect for the kids in your life. Finally, finish things off with yummy gluten-free treats that are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
