20 Healthy Substitutes for Your Favorite Unhealthy Dishes

Get what you want, what you need, but without a serving of guilt, remorse, and shame. Long-term healthy eating means balance between your wants and needs. Lasagna, with creamy ricotta and stringy mozzarella oozing from each noodle layer and often punctuated with ground pork, sausage, or beef, is a comfort food favorite, no doubt. This lasagna recipe swaps in thin slices of zucchini for the noodles and is layered with a creamy cottage cheese filling and sautéed vegetables. You almost can't tell the difference between cheeses when it's mingling with so many other flavors, such as the tangy tomato sauce. And with no flour noodles, it's just one big vegetable, no?
