Have you ever tried to make a comfort dish healthy? I used to think adding vegetables made a dish healthy. So many times my answer to a really fatty (delicious) meal was just to add vegetables. I got away with adding peppers to sausage and carrots to meatloaf for many years. Then when my husband and I decided we were going to lose weight together, we turned to Dr. Ian’s Fat Smash diet.
One of my favorite comfort foods is shrimp fried rice. When I finally stumbled upon adding bacon to my shrimp fried rice recipe, I was ecstatic. The bacon added that flavor that was always missing.
