Mac 'n Cheese

I have struggled hardcore this past year with my weight, eating, fitness, all of it. I did the 21 Day Fix back in January and lost almost 10 pounds because of it! It’s an awesome program, so you should definitely check it out.

BUT, I still struggled with the eating part.

Our lives are so fast paced. I always have good intentions and try to make good choices, but inevitably somewhere along the way I slip. And I got tired of slipping and feeling bad. I got tired of starting over and hoping tomorrow would be better.

So I joined Weight Watchers. Again.

I’ve done Weight Watchers a couple of times in my life, and both times I was successful. The first time I did it, I lost almost 65 pounds. CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE THAT? I loved the flexibility that Weight Watchers gave me. I can eat whatever I want, but always choose better choices while on the program because I WANT to. There’s no deprivation of anything. I can have ice cream if I still want, I just have to count the points. It’s easier, it’s flexible, and it fits my lifestyle perfectly.

It always has.

So I wanted to share a recipe here of an old favorite that I am SO GLAD I can still eat!! Mac n Cheese is one of my all time favorite meals. Am I still a kid?? If liking Mac ‘n Cheese makes me one, then YES. This is a low point recipe and pretty much the easiest thing to whip up. Check it out:

Ingredients

* 1 1/2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
* 1 can low fat cheese soup
* 1/2 can water
* 3/4 cup low fat milk

2. Return noodles to the pan and add cheese soup, water and milk. Stir well and bring to a boil.
