Winter can be a tough time for healthy eating: All too often the dishes that are cozy and satisfying are also loaded with saturated fat and excess calories.

Esposito, who must follow a gluten-free diet for medical reasons and who runs a gluten-free bakery, also shares her recipe for wheat- and gluten-free flatbreads that are perfect for dipping in the stew.
