Skinny Mac n’ Cheese
This Skinny Mac N’ Cheese is half the calories of your regular macaroni and cheese with all of the creaminess you want from SkinnyMom’s new cookbook Skinny Suppers: 125 Lightened-Up, Healthier Meals for Your Family .
I have spent the last week in New York City with my husband for his MBA program. Believe me when I say that we have left no stone unturned, no calorie untasted. If you follow me on Instagram or snapchat you know that’s true. The sad thing is that I only posted about 1/10 of the things we’ve eaten. But it does make me feel a little better knowing how much we walked everywhere. We did 26,000 steps on Wednesday which is about 13.2 miles.
Before I left town I made this Skinny Mac N’ Cheese from SkinnyMom’s new cookbook Skinny Suppers:125 Lightened-Up, Healthier Meals for Your Family . She has a ton of healthy recipes that your family will actually eat. I’m usually skeptical when it comes to making classic comfort foods lighter but this one totally held its own. My kids said, “Can we have this every night for dinner?”
They ate it all! All of it. It’s only 156 calories per serving so you can feel good about that.
