WFPB Creamy Mac & Cheese
Leaving off on L'chaim, Bob was still living in Maryland for the remaining 3 months before he drove truck #2 down to Texas on November 6. He came for 1 short weekend visit smack dab in the middle and I broke the news to him before he got here.
"Um...you need to know, I stopped eating meat. I feel so much better and wait till you see how much weight I've lost."
He said, "Okay! Great! Can't wait to see you Baby!"
Boy that was easy. Actually Bob's been easy for the entire 36 years (March) that we've been married. I could put a cold shoe on his plate and he'd trust me that it was delicious.
This afternoon, I knew there weren't any leftovers in the fridge so when he asked, "hey Babe, what's for lunch?" I said, "well, there isn't anything, so I better get movin." And I quickly went through my brains recipe file...and remembered Mac & Cheese!
I'd pass grains in the grocery store with evil thoughts....I'd just trained myself to eat Paleo (dead animal flesh) for gosh....well over 10 years. Not to even mention that we ate animal flesh like most Americans...3X day! I just kept eating dead animal flesh and I kept gaining weight and the inflammation was evident in my face.
I'd even find myself starring at the meat or seafood...and putting it in my cart! It probably took well over 6 months after the change for me to not even give meat a second thought and not accidentally pay for it!
No, it's not dairy cheese AND it's certainly NOT "vegan" cheese from the store...we eat real food...not manufactured food...it's an awesome Son In Law & daughter tested and proven delish plant cheese made with potato, carrot, onion, nutritional yeast, cashews.....and NO guilt!
We love this stuff! I'll make the cheese just so we have something healthy to snack on. With homemade fat free tortilla chips, it hits the spot for that yummy crunchy snack. It really is the best queso dip I've ever had!
If you need help finding good WFPB recipes, I've collected and tried many on my Pinterest WFPB board.
*One BIG distinction between WFPB and Vegan....is that WFPB is REAL FOOD made from plants and generally low in fat. Vegan foods are high in fat and manufactured...I mean, Oreos are Vegan!!! There are some well meaning FAT vegans! The chef for Dr Pam Popper's organization weighed in at a whopping 450 lbs and he was VEGAN! Thankfully he's down considerably after she helped him see the difference.
I challenge you.....do you want to see a health issue turn around? Are you looking for that cure to your disease? Are you feeling sluggish and tired all the time? Is your skin showing signs of oxidation?
Join us old folks and live well! I want to die after I've been used up and poured out...not propped up and kept alive with Rx.
Let Food be your medicine!
