My name is Risa. I'm 25 years old and live in Boca Raton, Florida. I have battled with my weight since I was about 6 years old, and for the last couple years, I was finally winning the fight. But I slipped, gaining back more than I'd prefer from my lowest weight in ages. Now I'm buckling down again to shed the weight so I can look on the outside the way I feel on the inside. But the road isn't always straight and smooth. For more information on my life-long weight loss journey, please view my first post here. This blog exists for me, to keep me on track and motivated. If you don't like personal posts or personal opinions, you took the wrong fork at Albuquerque!

3 Ingredient Easy Peasy Mac and Cheesy (I’m corny I know)

  • 1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Elbow Macaroni
  • 1 Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge (Your flavor choice)
  • 2 Handfuls of Frozen Peas (Or any other frozen veggie you like)

The only real “cooking” is boiling the macaroni, the rest is just assembly pretty much.  Put the peas in the pasta water with the macaroni towards the end of cooking (Save some water in case you want to thin out your sauce).  After you drain the pasta and peas return to cooking pot and add wedge.  I cut it up a little to make it go faster.  Mix until fully melted.  Season to taste (lots of pepper for me :)).  Eat!

mac & cheese is my downfall, seriously whenever it’s around I have an almost impossible time controlling myself. I will be picking these items up at the grocery store on sunday, can’t wait to try it!
