Vegan Macaroni

Vegan Macaroni

Creamy Hemp Heart Mac n’ Cheese (vegan and gluten+nut+soy free) serves 2-3. 

OH MY people, this vegan Macaroni is killer. Maybe the best macaroni dish I've ever had. I'm so excited about our collaborations with Christine from Plant-Eaters Club because I just find that her recipes are so accessible, easy, and I learn new health tips each week! It's so encouraging and makes me want to cook more and more vegan food!

Pro Info:

This meal is PACKED with protein. Hemp hearts have 10g of protein in 3 Tablespoons! Plus Quinoa has more protein than wheat or rice <3 

Turmeric paired with black pepper and any type of lipid (lipid = fancy word for fat) is needed to absorb all the many beautiful medicinal effects of what turmeric has to offer the body
