Mac NOT Cheese Recipe + Pieter lost 12 pounds!

January 04, 2012

I’m so proud of my husband! It has been 2 weeks since Pieter has started his 30 day plant-based challenge and he has lost 12 pounds!!! The best part is that everyone keeps telling him he looks fresh, awake, and healthy (all great compliments). Before this all started I made a bet with him that he would lose 20 pounds in 30 days and I think he is well on his way. Along with the weight loss Pieter tells me that he has tons of energy and feels great. Pieter wakes up almost every morning at 4:30 for work and in the past has always needed a nap mid day. For the past 2 weeks he has not mentioned being tired or needing a nap once, that’s amazing! Even though I know he misses his beef he is a big trooper and I’m so excited that he is sticking to it (it helps the public is involved now . I love you Pieter! Here is a Vegan Mac Not Cheese Recipe: 1 pound of whole grain macaroni/elbow noodles 1 red bell pepper ½ cup nutritional yeast 1 T. lemon juice 1 clove garlic 2 t. sea salt 1 t. onion Powder 1.5 cups cashews, soaked for at least 2 hours 1. Place all the ingredients in the Vita Mix in the order in which they are listed and secure the lid. Blend until a smooth texture is achieved. 2. Follow cooking directions on the pasta and drain. Add cheese mixture to pasta and serve.
