Healthy Weeknight Meals: Macro Mac & Cheese

I can’t say that I made this tonight, but I did make this on a weeknight before VeganMoFo started.

This is the Macro Mac & Cheese from Blissful Bites. The stars aligned a few weeks ago: I decided I was tired of vegan cheese substitutes, and then I find out there’s a mac and cheese recipe that uses butternut squash instead!

Blissful Bites is a beautiful book, with lots and lots of healthy recipes. The recipes are organized by season, so this is a book where it might make sense to actually try to cook your way through, one season at a time.

The key to making this on a weeknight is preparation: have the squash peeled, cubed and ready to use, and then very little of your time is spent preparing anything- it becomes a matter of turning on a couple of pots, throwing things together in the Vita-Mix, and then tossing it in the oven.

I hope to try some of the other recipes soon!

Also, I love it when you follow me on Facebook or Twitter!
