Make this kid-favorite Gluten-Free Macaroni and Cheese recipe in just 30 minutes that the whole family will love – featuring healthy, real food ingredients.
Macaroni and cheese is all-time favorite dish for both kids and adults. Unfortunately, most packaged mac and cheese meals on grocery store shelves are laden with toxic ingredients, including artificial colors, flavors, preservatives and more. Even the so-called organic mac and cheese options on the market contain processed cheese.
So what’s the alternative? Make your own. I swear it’s a piece of cake. It pretty much takes the same amount of time as cooking the noodles and reconstituting the cheese sauce from boxed brands, yet this recipe is so much better for you. Plus, I’ve got a quick and easy turkey meatball recipe that’s a great side dish for this pasta.
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
