You can't go wrong with macaroni and cheese-just about everyone loves it! While there are plenty of convenient boxed options out there, making mac and cheese from scratch lets you use natural ingredients, including freshly grated cheese, and you get to control the amount of salt and fat. This means a healthier version with no artificial colors or flavors and it's not hard to make - you can even get the kids to help!

Yvonne, one of our Whole Story readers, sent us this idea for a recipe makeover:
My daughter used to love to bake. However, we recently found out from her naturopath's tests that she is gluten-, dairy- and egg-intolerant. Do you have any kid-friendly (cookies, cakes, muffins) baking recipes which are dairy, wheat and egg free? Thanks a million!

Do you have a favorite recipe that could use a natural makeover? Let us help!
  • Maybe your recipe is chock full of processed ingredients. We'll show you how to swap those out for natural versions.
  • Could the nutrition profile use some lightening up of calories, fat or sodium? Or maybe you want to get more of the good stuff - like fruits, veggies and whole grains. Let us tweak the ingredients to improve the nutrition without losing any flavor.
