I don't know anyone who doesn't take comfort in a warm bowl of some mac & cheese but let's face it, Krafts mac&cheese is NOT going to help you reach your goals. Buuutttt, I'm not asking you give up your cheesy treat-- just change it up a little bit with this homemade option that is healthier and yes, more delicious! This bowl of mac is made with REAL low-fat cheese, NO extra sodium, NO preservatives, and a more than a serving of your veggies for the day. So go ahead, enjoy your treat--guilt free! Thanks mom for the recipe :)
(Based on 1.5 box of elbow noodles... I usually make 2-2.5 boxes at a time so I have extra for some meal prep and leftovers)
I like to serve mine with some grilled chicken or grilled turkey so that I also get a good source of lean protein. I recommend doing the same so that you have a balanced meal.
