Comfort Food Without the Calories
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 you – and your family – lose weight in the most delicious and simple way possible. Look out for lots of freezer tips too.
