Healthy and comforting? The recipes that fall into this magical sliver of the Venn diagram are nothing short of pure mealtime genius. I'm talking about vegetable-forward foods like Lasagna-Stuffed Spaghetti Squash and Grown-Up Tater Tots that still you feel like you're eating something comforting, plus old favorites like Blueberry Pie Smoothies and Turkey Taco Salad. So good, right?

I know that some of these recipes aren't exactly low-calorie, but there are many ways to define "healthy" in our diets. These dishes are filled with plenty of good-for-you veggies, fruits, and other wholesome ingredients — but also don't skimp on the cheese. Personally, I consider that a win-win situation.
