Who says healthy foods can't be comfort foods? Well, a lot of people actually (including a few members of the EDF team!). But here's the thing: one of the reasons why we love some of our favorite comfort foods is because they're soul-warming and packed with nostalgic memories. And, sure, many of these dishes happen to be rich and gooey plates of cheesy heaven -- but some of them aren't. We're not saying that you should do away with your most cherished, gut-busting meals. We merely think that you might find that same cozy, food-blanketing feeling from a few plates that happen to have health benefits. And for the non-believers, we dare you to try the Lightened Rice Pudding and call it anything other than delectable.
