I read somewhere that cheese is as addictive as cocaine. I also read everywhere that it is not good for you. Tell that to most American kids. Then try to take away their "cocaine" in that little blue box with the yellow pasta of death for a healthy swap and you will quickly learn why obesity is a problem around here. That's why I recommend serving this Healthy Vegan Potato Carrot Mac n Cheese without ever saying WORD about it coming from vegetables to see if your kids like it as much as mine do. I also have a not so SECRET Ingredient that I'm about to tell you all about...


We decided to try this all natural and organic Coconut Oil with Buttery Flavor from Nutiva. As you can see, it has been a hit and since coconut oil tends to be a healthier alternative to other oils and vegan butters and spreads, we use this. You can certainly use other vegan buttery spreads but this is our favorite!
