Protein Mac ‘n’ Cheese
It’s started to get cold here in the UK and when its cold all I want is a snuggly blanket and comfort food. To me there is nothing like a cheesy pasta bake and lets be honest, the type I’m talking about is all carbs and fat and a big no no when you’re trying to eat clean. I have a recipe here that’s a game changer; its under 500 calories and packs in a fantastic 56g of protein per portion, while still being rich and comforting.
The key to this recipe is clever substitutions. I swapped out the usual macaroni for Dr Zak’s Protein Pasta and the cheese for MyProtein Low Fat Protein Cheese. It’s a pretty simple recipe and quick to put together.
My recipe is for a simple creamy cheesy pasta bake (with a bit of chilli but its optional). You can add veggies or meat if you want, just mix them in at step 6. Of course this will effect the macros.
Tip: Eat as soon as its ready for gooey goodness.
