Clean Mac n’ Cheese!
Who doesn't LOVE a big, creamy bowl of mac n' cheese?! :)
Am I right or am I right?!
Although mac n' cheese may be one of the all time LEGENDARY childhood favorites, it's a meal that is generally packed full of butter, milk, and flour... which will leave your digestive system saying "Girl... no more!"
Sister, we've got you. I perfected a homemade vegan-(ish) mac n' cheese dish that is both hubby and toddler approved. My secret? Butternut squash. I know.. crazy. (Don't tell your husband ;) ) Now, onto the recipe! I'm so excited for you to try this dish. Pair it with a big kale salad and some fresh garlic bread and GIRL, you'll be the mama of the night! ENJOY!
