Comfort foods like pizza, sandwiches, burgers are just a few of the things that many people struggle to give up entirely when looking for low-carb snacks. Fortunately there are plenty of ways to recreate some of these crowd-pleasing dishes in a way that's healthier than eating the real thing, without losing out on indulgence entirely.

The simplest way to turn a favorite food into a low-carb dish involves swapping out the bread for a vegetable or fruit. A few ideas include using sliced avocados as bowls, zucchini slices or a lettuce wrap as a replacement for breaded buns.

To ensure that a person's desire for health, good taste and familiar food textures are satisfied, one inventive recipe even uses a spinach-based bread to form the container for a sandwich.
