Vegan Butternut Squash Mac And Cheese

Cheesy Mac And Cheese Using Butternut Squash

Mac and cheese was everyone’s childhood favorite. But the type I personally grew up eating was the kind with the powdered cheese… I wonder what exactly is in powdered cheese… Well I’m just glad those days are behind me now!

Alternatively, I would eat the mac and cheese made with 100% diary products like butter, milk, and cheese. And we all know that dairy products are the top source of saturated fats in an american diet, it’s not meant for our species to consume, and I mean have you seen the dairy industry? No thanks. Luckily, these dark days are also behind me.
