Although comfort food is better known for its more indulgent dishes (think: mac 'n' cheese or pizza), the retro foods on your 2017 menu are also low-key superfoods! Canned and smoked fish (such as tuna) are all-stars to keep in your cupboard, and veggie-heavy pasta recipes plus potatoes, prunes, and cottage cheese recipes will be popping up everywhere. Another winner: cold soups, such as borscht and vichychoise!
First there were "zoodles," and now Pinterest trends such as veggie "rice," banana "sushi," and watermelon jerky (dried watermelon) are all the rage. Your best bets for trying the trend? Fruit and nut snack bars, bean-based chips, and veggie-loaded frozen snacks and meals are a great place to start. My favorite veggie swap? Using "slices" of baked sweet potato in place of bread for sandwiches. It's amazing with almond butter, cinnamon, and honey!
