Homemade mac & cheese, store-made mac & cheese, boxed mac & cheese, restaurant-made, you name it, I’ve had it. Does anyone else just love mac n’ cheese as much as me? It’s like comfort in a bowl. It’s the last thing I gave up before switching to veganism. Luckily, being vegan means you can still eat mac n’ cheese.

Frozen food has come a long way since it first hit American supermarkets more than 50 years ago.

I recently received a sample package of Annie’s new mac n’ cheese products — Vegan Elbows & Creamy Sauce (Gluten-Free) and Vegan Shells & Creamy Sauce.
I love mac n’ cheese and try to make a homemade vegan cheese sauce as much as I can out of cashews and nutritional yeast. However, when I don’t want to make it from scratch, I usually opt for a boxed version since there are so many dairy-free choices now on the market!
Annie’s Homegrown now offers Organic Vegan Shells & Creamy Sauce, as well as Organic Gluten Free Vegan Elbows & Creamy Sauce! They are similar to other boxed mac n’ cheese products that sit on the shelf, and they’re perfect for young people, college students, busy families, and anyone who wants an easy-to-make meal.
New York City is a sprawling metropolis that’s overflowing with frenetic energy, and sometimes it can get overwhelming. I like to de-stress and make the city seem a bit more manageable by relaxing at Caravan of Dreams, an organic and kosher vegan restaurant in the East Village. Venturing into this dimly lit restaurant when a live band is playing can seem like a breath of fresh air, forcing me to focus on the present moment and enjoy a meal while forgetting all of that craziness outside.
As a child, I ate plenty of boxed mac & cheese, and I loved the Kraft kind in particular. Now, I have completely changed my diet to cut out most of the things I grew up eating – including cheese. But that doesn’t mean my taste for those childhood products has gone away! I still want some easy, creamy mac n’ cheese as much as the next American. Luckily, Earth Balance is here with a new, vegan mac n’cheese product that sits on the shelf.
