Comfort food can be soothing and fun, but it tends to be high in calories, fat or sugar. Luckily, we have healthy swaps for go-to favorites:

Instead of… a banana-split sundae

Try… sliced bananas topped with whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel and slivered almonds.

Instead of … a large bagel and cream cheese

Try … a whole-wheat English muffin with 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter.

Instead of … chips and dip

Try … multi-grain pita chips with hummus.

Instead of … apple pie เ la mode

Try … a baked apple topped with 1 crushed graham cracker and ฝ cup of low-fat yogurt.

Instead of … mashed potatoes

Try … steamed cauliflower mashed with 1 teaspoon of olive oil.

Instead of … french fries

Try … baked sweet potato fries.
