If you’re like me, you love cheese. Especially mac and cheese. If you’re like my sister, you can’t enjoy this comfort food like you used to. Fear not, dietary-conscious eater. There’s a delicious dish for you to enjoy!
Daiya to the rescue! The dairy-free alternative company has three types of cheezy mac: Deluxe Cheddar Style, Deluxe Alfredo Style, and Deluxe White Cheddar Style Veggie. Nikki had the latter. Aside from being dairy-free, it’s also gluten, soy, egg, peanut, tree nut, fish, and shellfish-free. The noodles are made from brown rice and contains no trans fat or cholesterol. This cheezy mac is 300 calories per serving. As a reminder, I do not recommend looking at the carbs. It’ll make you sad.
