i think ...
1. do you get enough protein?
2. don't you miss chocolate?
3. don't you miss cheese?
listen, i don't miss cheese. but i'm not going to lie, i miss mac & cheese. such delicious, filling comfort food ... hard not to miss it. but lucky for us, unlike vegans of generations ago -- we've got vegan mac & cheese options a plenty available for our consumption.
so i made my way over to vegan heaven (aka whole foods) & picked a few options. here's what i got ...
remember when we were kids & we'd say "first is the worst" ...? i decided to apply that principle here. this wasn't terrible (unlike the daiya white alfredo box or whatever, which was truly inedible), but it wasn't great. this one is trying to be like velveeta mac ... #fail on that front.
earth balance :
like the daiya wants to be velveeta, this one wants to be kraft. not going to lie, it's pretty damn good. my level of excitement when this first came out was sky high ... met / exceeded expectations.
pro tip -- skip the v. milk & add extra v. butter.
soul vegan :
my faveeee. reminds me of homemade mac & cheese ... i like to add some seasonings & crushed red pepper for a li'l kick (not pictured). if i see this when i'm at whole foods, i pretty much have to get it. it's that good. it comes from the people who brought us vegan now & the original soul vegetarian. so you can trust it's god. (that was a typo, but i decided to leave it.)
