Gameday Buffalo Chicken Chili
Developed by a born-and-raised Atlantan, this buffalo chicken chili is made with organic, whole foods like pastured ground chicken, cannellini beans, and all-natural buffalo sauce. It's full of protein, free of unnecessary food additives, and downright delicious. (Oh, there's beer in it too.)

Low-Carb Chili Dog Bake
A trip to Atlanta wouldn't be complete without a chili cheese dog from The Varsity—a much-loved drive-in located in the heart of midtown. Skip the lines and ditch the empty carbs with this bunless at-home version that's baked as a casserole instead of stuffed into an oversize roll.

Low-Fat Lobster Mac & Cheese
Fried chicken is a staple of the South, but it's traditionally loaded with fatty bad-for-you oils. This clean version is coated with breadcrumbs and spices and then baked, so it's still crunchy and full of flavor.

Vegan Boston Baked Beans
Molasses and pork give traditional Boston baked beans their sweet and smoky flavor. This healthier vegan alternative uses less sweetener and substitutes hickory smoked sea salt for the pork. And since it's made from scratch, there's far less sodium than the canned variety.
