Butternut Squash “Mac” & Cheese

Butternut Squash "Mac" & Cheese | Life Currents

I love mac & cheese. But, I don’t eat it very often because of all the calories & saturated fats. But, this one’s awesome! With all that butternut squash, you can cut back on the cheese without losing flavor or creaminess. All the pleasures of mac & cheese with no guilt! #pasta #dinner #lightened

Sausage, Broccoli, and Roasted Lentils

This dish makes a great fall dinner or lunch. And, it makes a great budget-friendly weeknight meal. The roasted lentils give a nice spicy smoky crunch to the dish. The smoky roasted broccoli helps lighten it up, while the sausages (even if they are vegan) are meaty and yummy.

Homemade Rice-a-Roni

As part of my remaking our childhood favorites, I thought I’d take on the Rice-a-Roni copy cat challenge. The Homemade Broccoli Au Gratin Rice-a-Roni is really close to the original. And, I have a Mixed Veggie Rice-a-Roni that has way too many veggies to be compared to the boring packaged stuff! #chidhoodFavorites #healthier #copycat
