Most of these are extremely high in carbs which I have to keep under 35 gr because of bariatric surgery. However, they all look delicious.

I have already found healthy ways to enjoy my comfort foods. Lots of sugar free, dairy free foods out there. I can have ice cream (Sort of) and chocolate. Love alomond milk and have found lots of ways to make oatmeal.

This is absolutely incredible! Thank you for this article, two or three 'comfort' foods may be worth trying.

I am sorry but none of these so call comfort food should be here in a healthy website. Eleven of the mentioned were full of dairy which should not be in any healthy diet. Plus many people could not tolerate it.

I have made several of my own versions of these recipes in the past several weeks! I have a luscious one for Baked Oatmeal (with almond milk). I was sick with sinus infection craving chicken made that with rice, rather than noodles. Yummy lowfat version of meatloaf, a friend made cauliflower pizza which was to "die for" yummy!! I have a really low fat version of pasta alfredo with broccoli that is very tasty! So I think in the comfort food department I have done well!! :)

Excited about the mushroom gravy recipe for biscuits and gravy! I have several lower cal mac and cheeses and other pasta dishes-- I can enjoy some of my favorite foods and feel good at the same time.

Am a bit surprised at how meaty many of these comfort foods are.

Had to laugh at GREENHOME1's comment. Obviously she didn't try it before commenting. Stating it was more like "pudding" instead of mousse because it didn't have egg whites.....yes it does and it IS fluffy and it IS a mousse. Please, people, don't leave a criticism if you haven't tried the recipe. I loved it and so did my entire family. No one new it was a lower calorie version of an old recipe.

I eat all of these but do not lose weight. It is the QUANTITY of the Comfort Food that is really important!

Hey, you can't call it "mousse" if it's not airy and fluffy from egg whites. Greek yogurt is neither. It's pudding, maybe.

Otherwise, there are some good suggestions and reminders in that list. Thanks.
