Winter can get a bad rap — you get the extreme indulgence of the holidays quickly followed by the more austere resolution months. On top of that, the vegetable assortment is less than exciting compared to summer. But sticking to a steady goal of 1,500 calories is doable during the colder months by focusing on hearty whole grains, root vegetable-packed soups and lighter versions of comfort food classics. This menu gives you a taste of what a balanced and filling 1,500 calorie day looks like during the winter.
