Comfort Food Without the Calories
Justine says, “For me, comfort food is about indulgence; dishes that are rich, full flavoured and satisfying. Think of creamy sauces, golden pies, hearty stews and luscious chocolate puddings. Not surprisingly, comfort food tends to be very high in fat, sugar and starchy carbohydrates – not what anyone needs if they’re trying to lose weight.
In this book, I’ve taken classic comfort food dishes and given them a healthy makeover. I’ve reworked the ingredients to reduce the number of calories while keeping the flavour, helping cooks lose weight in the most delicious and simple way possible.”
