21 Day Fix-Friendly Macaroni and Cheese
If you’re on the 21 Day Fix and craving comfort food, you don’t have to deprive yourself. This macaroni and cheese recipe is made with 21-Dayf Fix friendly ingredients. Plus, it tastes great! If your family likes a richer version, have them sprinkle a little more cheese on top. There are other different and unique styles to making one on CookingPlanIt. I highly suggest visiting their recipes as I learned a lot of things from them.
I won’t lie to you. It’s not quite the same as the rich, ooey-goody sinful version of the World’s Best Mac and Cheese I normally make. BUT – for about half the calories and zero guilt, this is a great compromise.
