Is cheese healthy?

Macaroni and Cheese dish is perhaps one of the most popular comfort foods in America, and that’s saying something when you think about how much people love to eat hamburgers.

Cheese is an integral part of Mac and Cheese, so let’s talk about why it’s good for you.

Cheese is rich in nutrients that promote health, growth, and development. In addition, cheese is an excellent source of proteins and is easily digestible.

Protein is a good energy source and is one of the most crucial human body requirements.

Cheese is rich, creamy, and is considered comfort food. It is a good source of calcium and contains nutrients such as vitamins A and D, riboflavin, and phosphorus.

And the best part is that this gluten-free pasta meal will fill you up and satisfy even big appetites!

The presence of smoky bacon adds to the deliciousness and helps to increase the protein, which means you will feel full longer.

Why did we add fresh tomatoes?

One of the favourite ingredients in this baked mac and cheese recipe is fresh tomatoes. Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, a potent antioxidant.

Lycopene promotes skin elasticity and helps protect against UV-induced skin damage that can lead to wrinkles and possibly cancer. Lycopene also increases skin hydration, helps fight free radical damage, and may slow down aging.

Healthy foods can indeed be satisfying and comforting. This gluten-free mac and cheese recipe proves it. This beloved comfort food gets a makeover but still satisfies the taste buds of young (and old) alike.
