One of the foods that I am always craving is macaroni and cheese. But macaroni and cheese is really high in carbs. And it’s not an easy thing to eat on the Superbowl if you have a gluten allergy. I’ve found this awesome gluten free high protein pasta. I was buying the kids their favorite Annie’s macaroni and cheese the other day and guess what? They are now making MY MAC N’ CHEESE!! It’s gluten free AND full of protein. It’s an easy to make macaroni and cheese! Life is good again. I need my macaroni and cheese. It always sounds good after my long runs.
