Mac & Cheese for Life
When I was in high school, I made an awful lot of Kraft Mac N Cheese for myself. It served as breakfast, lunch, snack, midnight snack. Whatever I needed. Growing teens need more food and I was especially fond of creamy sauces on pasta. PASTA!!!!
For a few months now, the vegan forums online have been buzzing about the release of Earth Balance’s mac n cheese in a box… just like the old Kraft stuff… but vegan and probably a little healthier.
So, when I couldn’t find it, I went to the source:
Then one day…. there it was!
I’ve since tried out both flavors (cheddar with frozen peas added and white cheddar plain)
The verdict? Really yummy. I don’t recommend eating the whole box by yourself (I regret that), but they were really tasty. A great treat or something handy to have in your pantry for food emergencies.
I let Tony have a taste of the white cheddar flavor and he almost refused to give the bowl back to me. “Please, can I have my breakfast back?” He laughed, took a few more bites and then handed it back.
If you don’t care for boxed stuff (and really it shouldn’t be a staple in anyone’s diet), here is my favorite vegan mac n cheese recipe. It’s also pretty guilt-free.
