We’re adding a keto twist to the classic comfort food Mac N Cheese. Instead of pasta, we’re using our trusty friend the cauliflower. I promise you babes this is just as good, even my toddler likes it!

Get Cheesy

Our household is all about the cheese and we love our Mac N Cheese. So I thought, why not make it keto and keep it delish?! Obviously, it was a success because even Teddy likes it. I used Aged White Cheddar for my recipe, but feel free to experiment with what cheese to use and let me know how yours turns out. Cauliflower is such a great substitute for macaroni because you can change the texture depending on how long you cook it. I love the versatility because it really doesn’t taste like anything and embraces the flavor that you give it. I also love all the health benefits that cauliflower has. It is naturally high in fiber and B-vitamins plus it has antioxidants that can protect your from many diseases. I still have a hard time adding veggies to my diet, but this definitely helps because it’s all comfort even though it’s all veggies. I hope you can try it out for yourself babe.
