What would some of our favorite comfort food classics looks like if we asked a nutritionist to give them a makeover? In this series of recipes, you see how smart choices around vegetables, meats, and cheese make for a lighter, more nutritious take on everything from mac and cheese to meatloaf without ever compromising the flavor.
When I was growing up, meatloaf was a staple recipe in our household. I specifically remember my dad and I being overjoyed to hear it was on the weeknight menu.
Now meatloaf is the ultimate comfort food for me. But while it’s a great source of protein, it tends to lack vegetables that could actually help to boost flavor and provide more vitamins and minerals.
