Who didn’t love a heaping bowl of Kraft Mac & Cheese when they were a kid?
I certainly know I loved that stuff.
But now that I’m an adult, I can’t help but think twice about the package of cheese that you sprinkle onto the noodles and wonder if there’s a better and healthier way.
Not to mention that box of Mac & Cheese contains three servings (and I ate the WHOLE box).
ONE SERVING of the traditional box:
- 350 calories
- 13g of Fat
- 720g sodium
- 47g of carbs!
Multiple that three times over and you can see where we might have a problem!
So I was asking myself, “how can I recreate one of my favorite foods- make it low-calorie, have better macros, still be tasty AND convenient like the box.
A little bit of R&D in the kitchen combined with my favorite appliance, my air fryer, I struck gold.
And what I came up with shook out to be:
360 Cals, 50g Carbs, 8g Fat, 22g Protein for an entire skillet!
Bet you want in on the secret, am I right?
No worries, I’ll share 😉
And if you want to make sure you absolutely crush this recipe- I got you covered with a video tutorial on the Tubes as well!
