This blog post was created in partnership with Luvo, but all opinions are my own!
Y’all have heard me say it over and over again, but I absolutely LOVE frozen food.
They’re packed with the same (if not more) nutrients than fresh veggies/fruits and super convenient. You can read more about the benefits of frozen foods in this post: 15 Clever Ways to Eat Healthy on a Budget.
Michael and I are always working late and running around like crazy people, so we’ve loved finding new foods and brands to try that offer frozen meals.
Some of our favorite go-to frozen foods consist of: frozen fruits, veggies, black bean burgers, turkey burgers, smoothies, chicken curries and cauli rice.
A lot of people think since I’m a food blogger, all we do is sit around and eat glamorous meals… WRONG.
When you cook all day for work, you really don’t feel like cooking when it comes dinner time!

Since you all know i’m SUPER into modifying recipes (see: 7 Ways to Step Up Your Banana Bread, How to Eat Healthy at Any Restaurant, My Top Nutrition Tips blog post, + recipes like this, this + this) this meal was no different. I took this five minute cauliflower mac and cheese from Luvo and simply threw in a little extra love to doctor it up… and trick michael into thinking I slaved away in the kitchen all day 😉
The result…. the creamiest mac and cheese EVER. Plus it was jam-packed with nutrients so it was definitely a win-win.

OH & YOU’LL ALSO NEED
literally who doesn’t have a skillet and a microwave..? HA.
I was so impressed with how the mac and cheese came out before adding anything that I seriously debated spending time sauteeing the veggies. If you have some roasted bell peppers, those would be super delicious to add, too!
Maybe it’s just me, but I feel so much better when I can spot some veggies in my meal. So I went for it.
You better believe this recipe is going to be on repeat in the Moye house (apartment)! Recipe dEATs below!
