Guilt Free Macaroni and Cheese
Who doesn’t love a creamy, warm bowl of macaroni and cheese? Although it’s quick and easy to make, traditional preparations of this favorite dish don’t offer many health benefits. This recipe features whole-wheat macaroni (and you can make it gluten-free with gluten-free elbow pasta/macaroni), which unlike refined pasta, is rich in nutrients and fiber. Delicious bell peppers, garlic and onion add vitamins, minerals and cancer-fighting phytochemicals. Coupled with reduced-fat cheese, this is a macaroni and cheese you won’t feel guilty about serving to your family.
(As always, for the healthiest version of this recipe use organic content as much as possible)
