The Aldi Mac And Cheese That's Actually GOOD For You
"I'm down over 20 pounds [10kg]."
There are few things in the world as comforting as mac and cheese.
Like, maybe a hug from mum and warm clothes from the dryer but that's it.
So, you can imagine our excitement when we learned of a killer 'CauliMac' and cheese made using ingredients from Aldi.
Basically, something like this:
A US food blogger named Resha has even posted about the recipe writing:
"Cauliflower mac and cheese is a delicious treat for the family and super easy to make. Instead of macaroni, boil cauliflower florets until tender, drain and mix in Greek yogurt, cheddar cheese and mozzarella until combined. That’s it!"
Resha goes on to explain more on her website, explaining that despite being 'Keto', the dish is "balanced, creamy, gooey and decadent".
"There is absolutely zero pasta in this recipe," she details.
"I knew that if I were going to be successful on this diet, I’d have to make delicious keto versions of my favorite comfort foods. It’s working, because I’m down over 20 pounds [10kg!] and hella inches, and continuing to melt. My energy is through the roof, clarity is my best friend, and I just get so much more done."
According to Health Direct, the ketogenic, 'keto', diet is an "extremely-low carbohydrate diet that is sometimes used as a medical treatment for certain groups of people."
"On a ketogenic diet, people eat a very small amount of carbohydrates, a moderate amount of protein and a large proportion of fat per day. This means that the body uses fat as its main source of fuel and breaks it down into ‘ketone bodies’ (or ‘ketones’) in a process called ketosis."
