As a child, I thoroughly enjoyed your cheesy delicious macaroni and cheese, and ate it at LEAST 3 times a week. Nothing made me happier than sitting down at the kitchen table, and digging my spoon into a bowl of your fake-orange goodness.

But then things changed.

I started reading labels and your magical orange powder became suddenly less appealing.

It’s been fun, but you’re no longer needed…because mother nature has a perfect swap…

Nutritional Yeast!

Yummm. I’ve been filling up on this Vegan Mac and Cheese with Nutritional Yeastย (Click for the recipe!) Ok, it’s technically it’s couscous ‘n nutritional yeast, but it’s a GREAT swap for this comfort food.

And 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast has 12 grams of protein! Yes, TWELVE! (All for about 100 calories.) Oh, and it’s loaded with B Vitamins.

 

Go make thisย Vegan Mac and Cheese with Nutritional Yeast. Now. You won’t regret it. ๐Ÿ™‚
