When each new year comes around, I always say that this is my year to lose weight! Apparently the last ten years have not been my year haha! This year felt different somehow and I vowed that I was going to start eating healthier. I also decided to stop beating myself up if I did decide to have that occasional burger or that scoop of ice cream. Since January 1st I am happy to report that I have lost 20 pounds and am feeling great. I’ve been doing the online Weight Watchers program and keeping myself accountable. They have so many recipes you can choose from and when I saw this mac and cheese recipe, I had to make it.
What I love about the Weight Watchers program is that there are healthier versions of recipes for all of my favorite foods. This way I don’t feel deprived, like with this mac and cheese recipe. It is easy to make and delicious. Plus, it has lots of flavor and is great to save leftovers for lunch. Not to mention it has bacon in it, which makes everything better. The recipe called for turkey bacon, but I used center cut bacon, which is the same amount of points.
I hope you enjoy this mac and cheese recipe as much as I did…it’s definitely a keeper.
