We all have our favorite easy weeknight meals, and mac and cheese is a classic American comfort food. By itself, it’s got the grains and dairy groups easily, but there aren’t and fruits, veggies, or much protein in there. Don’t fret! It is easy to upgrade a humble box of mac and cheese to a meal that is both delicious and has all the food groups!
As always, you can mix, match, or make up your own upgrades depending on what you like to eat and what you have at home. Make a game of it and try a new upgrade each month until you have your family’s favorite nutritious upgrade!
