With fall upon us, we look to comfort foods that are warm and cozy. Most of us are looking to also be healthy and there’s no better way to get healthy and enjoy foods like these than low carb!
Most of these are reminiscent of foods my Grandmother made, but made low carb. They remind me of my Grandmother and soothe my soul.
While comfort foods are not thought of as healthy, that’s not the case with low carb. You can eat so many of the foods you enjoy, including comfort foods.
I’ve handpicked some of my favorites to share with you in hopes that you get healthy and enjoy the same warm and cozy feeling I do with these comfort foods. Bonus, no guilt and very flavorful! Try them and let me know what you think!

Italian Meatball Casserole from Briana Thomas
“This Italian Meatball Casserole doesn’t take many ingredients and can be thrown together in a hurry. (Yes, it is very possible to make meatballs in a hurry. Simply use your hands to pinch off the meatball mixture in golf ball-sized blobs and plop them in a dish. You can take the time to roll them nice and pretty if you so desire, but I usually omit that step. They get covered with sauce and cheese anyway!) This casserole doesn’t take any special ingredients – you probably already have all the ingredients in your cupboard! Not only is this meatball casserole the ultimate comfort food, but it’s also pretty kid-friendly! What kid doesn’t like meatballs and cheese and pizza sauce?”

Buffalo Chicken Jalapeno Popper Casserole from ruled.me
“Jalapenos and buffalo chicken are a marriage of flavors that just had to be done. It’s a flavor explosion that is oozing with rich and delicious cheese, and packed full of spiciness in every bite. Of course – you can’t forget about bacon. Everything tastes better with bacon.
I based this on a quick skillet meal that my girlfriend made me the other night. It was pretty much this, but in a pan – and I knew right then and there I had to make a casserole out of it. Both of us absolutely love buffalo sauce and try to put it on just about everything we can. Spice in general is welcome in this house – and this have a serious kick of delicious and spicy flavors. If you’re not a fan of spice, make sure you de-seed the jalapenos!
P.S. Don’t forget to serve your meal up with a delicious piece of crispy chicken skin!
A word of warning in advance: try not to add too much salt and pepper to the filling mixture until you’ve tasted it with the hot sauce. The hot sauce itself is relatively salty and will usually balance out the dish on its own.”
So whether you want to get healthy, are on a low carb plan, or simply want comfort foods, these are sure to please even the pickiest of eaters! Let me know which ones you tried!
