Broccoli Mac & Cheese

Mac & Cheese is a meal that many Americans have grown up on. With its warm, comforting, creamy texture and flavor, it's usually a family favorite. Most Mac & Cheese recipes can leave you feeling sluggish and heavy, and contain ingredients that don't support healing, like gluten, dairy, and added preservatives. Try this delicious and hearty homemade version instead. This Mac & Cheese recipe uses rice or bean pasta and a creamy cashew based cheese to mimic the traditional recipe without the health consequences. The addition of broccoli adds extra nutrients and healing properties, and a beautiful green pop of color.

Broccoli is packed with anti-cancer compounds such as sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol, which are known to help prevent stomach, colon, liver, breast, skin, and prostate cancers. Broccoli is excellent for strengthening and sharpening cognitive abilities such as memory, focus, and concentrations skills. It is also great for helping to prevent Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Broccoli is highly beneficial for the nervous system and is known to ease migraines, hypertension, anxiety, and nervous ticks. It contains natural antihistamine properties and is fantastic for warding off seasonal allergies, watery eyes, sinusitis, sinus infections, colds, flu, and bronchitis. Broccoli is well known for its ability to protect against heart disease and reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, strokes, and heart attacks. It can also help to lower high blood pressure and maintain good cardiovascular health.

Cashews are high in protein and are a rich source of vitamin B-complex and essential minerals such as iron, selenium, zinc, and copper. They are also packed with anti-cancer compounds called proanthocyanidins that have the ability to starve tumors and stop cancer cells from dividing. Cashews are highly beneficial for lowering blood pressure, preventing heart attacks, preventing gallstones, reducing the frequency of migraines, providing energy boosts, strengthening bones, and promoting healthy skin and hair. They are also excellent for the nervous system and they are known help keep muscles and nerves relaxed and free from tension and constriction. They can also help the body become more flexible and aid in elasticity of the tendons, muscles, and joints. Cashews have the ability to satiate hunger which decreases overeating and aids in weight loss and weight management.

Enjoy this recipe with family or friends. It's perfect alongside a crisp green salad of lettuces like mesclun, romaine, or butter lettuce.

Ingredients:
12 oz elbow shaped rice or bean pasta
2 cups cashews
2 tablespoons lemon juice
