Here’s an interesting thing I learned today: Kraft has gone stealth with its traditional mac & cheese. Apparently, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Veggie Pasta hit the shelves of some stores last month. A serving of the orange pasta provides a half-serving of cauliflower.
I’m torn about how I feel about this. Yes, it’s at least trying to make something that’s completely bad for you be slightly less bad for you. But, you could add REAL cauliflower and reap a whole lot more health benefits to the dish. Or, get really wild, and make your own version of mac n cheese – with added veggies – and cut out all the sodium and other processed crud that’s thrown into a box of Kraft Mac & Cheese.
But, still, some nights you just want that orange stuff. In which case, grab the box with the added cauliflower to at least feel less guilty.
