Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

So everyone’s talking about cooking and eating healthy these days.   But does that mean we should give up our favorite recipes all together?  Of course not!  Instead we should learn to modify without losing the taste.  And who knows, you may come up with something new that taste even better than the original!!!

If you have little ones at home Mac & Cheese is probably a popular item on the menu. Sure!  You want to keep then happy, at the same time you want them to eat right and more importantly you want them to develop good and healthy habits.

Here are a few suggestions:

Pasta: Use whole wheat /grain pasta instead.  Also, Gluten-Free rice pasta might be a good substitute.  Please note that cooking time might vary from the “normal” pasta you might be used to.  Also, it’s been my experience that some (like rice pasta) gets kind of hard after it gets cold.

Cheese: Here’s where calories and be saved big times.  Get in the habit of reading labels at the grocery store.  Experiment with low fat cheeses.  If you’re vegan, some of the non-dairy cheese they have at the grocery shelves works quite well for meting. 

Some additional suggestions: I’m going to come right out and say it….Add veggies to your mac and cheese!I usually chop my veggies real fine and add them (raw) to the mix.  Ok!  I must admit This doesn’t always fly at hour home.  I have learned to use veggies that they like and approve.  Here are a few examples of what works best for us.  Carrots, broccoli, collie flower, garlic.  Experiment with your kid’s favorite veggies.  You may also try putting the whole thing in a casserole dish and bake it for 10 to 20 minutes before serving.  The crispy golden top is a winner with kids from 2 to 92! Try getting kids involved into making the recipe and suggestions of cool veggies to add.

I hope you find the above suggestions and tips useful.  Please remember that this technique can be used with all your favorite dishes.  Spaghetti, pizza, rice dishes and even deserts!

Happy cooking!
