With the colder months fully present in South Africa and winter soon rearing its head, many of us will be looking for delectable warm recipes that are on the healthier side. While winter is known for being a period where people prefer comfort foods that are higher in calories, consuming too many fattening dishes is undeniably bad for your health. If you’re looking for a few recipes that are delicious and warm, we have three perfect meal-prep videos for you, directly from TikTok.

1. A healthier butter chicken meal

While butter chicken is normally packed with calories, with the meal prepared with fresh cream and a significant amount of butter, TikTok user, halfbakedharvest uses coconut milk instead, making the dish slightly healthier. She does, however, serve with both naan bread and rice, but you can choose to make either with your dish – both are not needed.

2. A delectable vegan soup
