My 12 favorite healthy comforting recipes from the blog I make over and over again! If you love your food clean, filling, AND easy to prepare, these recipes may just become a household staple!

Here they are, friends! My absolute favorite recipes from this site.

12 Healthy Comforting Recipes you'll want to put on repeat.

While I’m constantly developing new recipes for this site, there are some I make time and again. We food bloggers tend to only make a recipe a couple of times and then never revisit it. Like most people, I have my favorite comforting meals that I gravitate towards because I find them to be so satisfying and easy to throw together. 

I do my best to keep meal time simple and stress-free! We could all use a dose of easy and cozy right now, so I figured I would share the recipes that are absolute essentials for me.

When you’re in the mood for something that really hits the spot and is also nourishing, you can use this post as inspiration!

During those times we’re overwhelmed and it feels like everything is falling apart, one of the best things we can do for ourselves in the name of self-love is be good to our bodies. This means honoring our cravings in a way that supports our immune system and mental health.

Leave me a comment letting me know which one(s) you try!

Enjoy! xo
