Healthy macaroni and cheese?! Does that even exist?! Yes my friends, it does! And I have the perfect recipe for you! Even Lyme patients still enjoy their comfort food! ;) This mac n' cheese tastes better than the stuff that comes in a box, it lacks all of the chemicals and additives that can harm our bodies, and it's filled with nutrients that feeds our bodies, and our souls! ;) This recipe gave me a chance to travel back in time to my childhood when mac n' cheese was a staple at my house, and now it's something that my family enjoys regularly. Take your taste buds on a journey with this cheesy delight!
1 lb macaroni or pasta of choice
6 Tbs. butter (preferably grass-fed)
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/3 heavy whipping cream (organic)
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk
2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cup sharp shredded cheese
*If you desire a sauce that is less thick, you can add water a tablespoon at a time until you have your desired consistency.
*You can always add more salt to taste. I also like topping mine with basil and other herb mixes.

Food is one of the greatest forms of science, art, medicine, and sustenance all at the same time! It's what feeds our lives and pumps through our blood. It's what connects us and what gives us energy to fulfill our purpose. It is for that reason that I have a deep passion for discovering, cooking, and eating only the most nutrient dense foods. In my kitchen, we only use organic, whole ingredients that feed the body, as well as the mind and soul. My hope is to inspire healing through healthy AND delicious food that feeds not only our stomachs, but also our hunger for connection and quality of life.
