Healthy Macaroni and Cheese (with Avocado!)
To say that I am proud of this healthy, creamy, avocado macaroni and cheese recipe is an understatement.
It took me a couple tries but I finally nailed it.
It was hard to get the right combination of ingredients with the right taste but I kept try and voila! One of my favorite recipes was born.
Avocado is a great substitute for creamy ingredients like butter, which is great in moderation but doesn’t have nutrients such as fiber and healthy fats that avocado provides.
The velvety taste of the cheese with the soft warmth of the noodles. All without sacrificing nutrients, which is a big thing for me.
Honestly, I prefer macaroni and cheese recipe to Kraft Mac and Cheese (shh don’t tell my friend Charlie, she should honestly be sponsored by them!)
Before you dive into this recipe and test it for yourself…
This is a healthy fat (remember, saturated fat is the type of fat that is more harmful to your body) and it helps increase the good cholestorel levels (HDL- high density lipoproteins) within our body!
Whole-wheat pasta contains a lot more nutrients than regular, refined pasta. One of those nutrients is fiber, which our bodies need to aid in our regular bowel movements.
They don't call it nutritional yeast for nothing! It contains vitamin B12, which is a key component in our bodies brain functioning!
