Macaroni and Cheese

I know you all love your comfort foods. Those rich, ooeey, goey delights. Do those foods fit your intention to lead a healthier life? What if I made the recipes over, so they can?  Ok, done and done.  I am thrilled to announce my new column written for the team over at Diets in Review. Pimp That Recipe!

The idea behind most recipe makeovers is to take out or replace the “naughty” foods with “lighter” versions in order to reduce the big numbers from calories and fat. While reducing numbers is a piece of the health puzzle it doesn’t tell the whole story. Specifically since high fat/high calorie items are frequently replaced with chemically processed or highly processed “lite” versions which leaves a recipe that, quite frankly, can have a negative impact on your overall health. My makeover is a non-reductive food philosophy.  A makeover that focuses on REAL food, whole food, ADDING in rather than taking out.

Well you can see for yourself, continue reading below.

My first makeover? Macaroni and cheese… thank you to my tasters on this one. As it turns out, testing macaroni and cheese recipes while being dairy free is a bit difficult. BUT I have been reassured that this recipe gets multiple stamps of approval!

Do you have a recipe you would like me to makeover? Leave a comment below and I will Pimp that beeaatch!
