When you’re trying to eat healthier, you don’t have to give up your favorite comfort foods. Instead, smart ingredient swaps can help you save calories and reach your goals. The recipes below do this for you, by serving broccoli instead of rice with peanut chicken, and using lean ground turkey (plus beans) instead of beef in chili.

What’s more, using the slow cooker to make breakfast, lunch and dinner not only saves you time, but it also leaves room for two snacks and a comforting chocolate dessert. At 1,800 calories, this day features plenty of comfort foods with 24 grams of fiber and 78 grams of satiating protein.
