Meal Prep: A twist on Mac and Cheese!

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you have been enjoying the weekend! I definitely have, got in food shopping/meal prep, my long run, a mani/pedi and went to a housewarming party! It has been busy but great!!

Let’s check out what I prepped Friday night! When I have a super long run on Saturday I skip Pump/Spin for my usual sweaty Friday night. Since I had to do 19 yesterday, I went grocery shopping and cooked Friday night. Thanks to Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers for their weekly link-up!

Dinner

Ever since I saw this Mac and Cheese article I had been brainstorming a way that I could make my own Mac and Cheese with a twist. Mac and Cheese is my comfort food 100%. But sometimes it’s not always the healthiest (yup I have consumed many of those boxed Mac and Cheeses LOL).

I found this interesting Cous Cous at Trader Joes. I have been wanting to switch up the carbs I eat for dinner, it’s usually potatoes, rice or quinoa or quinoa pasta.

I hadn’t had Cous Cous in SO long and it was $1.99 so I am all about that! Quinoa is $5.99! It also only takes 5 minutes to cook.

I boiled some Cauliflower and let it get really soft.

Then I put it in a blender and added milk, left over mozzarella from last week’s meal and some of this shaved cheese that I bought too. Along with salt and pepper.

Then I cooked up some ground turkey and then I added the cauliflower cheese sauce and cous cous, mixed it all together and let it simmer together for a bit.

It doesn’t look pretty but it tastes awesome! A twist on Mac and Cheese!

I also roasted carrots and cooked some zucchini and an onion together for sides.

OH and I have officially embraced the Fall…

Um that Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookie Butter tasted like pumpkin pie. It. Is. Amazing.
