Along with grabbing our favourite comfy jumper and ugg boots, Winter is also the time when most of us start to crave comfort food like big bowls of warming stews, comforting curries and hot desserts.
Unfortunately, this sort of comfort food often gets a bad rap for being unhealthy and calorie-dense which can lead to weight gain in Wintertime.
Thankfully, the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has HEAPS of amazing comfort food for winter, which will give you all those comforting feelings you crave, but without all the calories. And what’s more, the July Budget Winter Challenge, is full of recipes that are kind to your waistline AND your wallet.
