What Is Comfort Food?
Comfort food is not a diet. It was created to help you cook healthy, budget-friendly meals in a little more time than it takes to pop frozen chicken strips and fries into a toaster oven.
It’s all about using fresh, seasonal ingredients and choosing smart filler-free prepackaged foods (while mindfully still enjoying your fave fast foods!).
It’s maximizing flavorful ingredients — all while savoring the food you’re eating, leaving you feeling satisfied and more connected with your meal.

#1 Fast Fried-Rice
Forget about take-out. You can make this flavorful, fast, easy, and healthy fried rice in under five minutes.
#2 Pickled Onions
Zhuzh up your recipes by topping them with bright-pink tart pickled make-ahead onions.
#3 Sheet Pan Dinner
One make-ahead meal makes breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the rest of the week.
#4 Pasta With Clams
Pasta with clams feels fancy AF, but it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare (and dirties up very few dishes).
#5 Thai-Inspired Soup
Throw all the ingredients into a mason jar or Tupperware. Add hot water and condiments when you’re hungry.
