Comfort food and winter go hand in hand. You want something that sticks to your ribs, warms up your belly, but doesn’t upset your nutritional coach. Well, you’re in luck! You don’t have to forego that resolution to lose weight or give up your favorite comfort foods and snacks. A few comfort snacks to keep you on track are:
 
• Matcha tea – Matcha is all the rage right now, and for good reason. The frothy green tea contains antioxidants, it gives you a natural energy boost, and it ramps up your metabolism while warming you from the inside out. If you’re in the mood for something indulgent, adding a bit of warm milk to your Matcha is just the ticket.
 
• Bone broth – You’ve probably heard of bone broth recently, as it’s benefits have turned it into a big deal in recent years. Bone broth is packed full of magnesium, making it a perfect post-workout or pre-workout comfort snack, and it also helps to regulate sleep as well as calm digestive issues. This nutritionist favorite is enjoyed hot to warm, and will warm you up from the inside.
 
• Chili – When you think of comfort foods, chili is probably at the top of your list. If you watch your meats and sauces, chili can also be a great healthy comfort food, as it’s filled with fiber rich beans and plenty of healthy spices. Rather than using ground beef in your chili, swap it out with a lower saturated fat meat like lean chicken or turkey and stay low-sugar and low-sodium for your sauce.
 
• Oatmeal – Oatmeal is warm, comforting, and invokes feelings of nostalgia for many. Using natural oats packed full of magnesium, phosphorus, and fiber, flavor your oatmeal using a bit of protein rich peanut butter and a few slices of chopped banana. What you get is a healthy snack or meal with a perfect balance of savory and sweet flavors.
 
• Bean soup – Bean soup is the perfect healthy comfort snack if you want to keep on track while not having a ton of time to prepare food for every snack or meal. Choosing a low-sodium recipe, warm bean soup is full of healthy soluble fiber, helping you to feel fuller for longer, and it can be made simply in large portions and frozen for enjoyment all throughout the week.
