One of the biggest challenges many people face when transitioning to a healthy – Real Food lifestyle is missing their favorite boxed convince foods. I’ve created an amazing Healthy version of Hamburger Helper, that will fool even your pickiest of eaters using all real food ingredients! While I didn’t grow up eating hamburger helper, I ate TONS of it while I was in college and after I was first married. Yes I liked it – I was quick, cheap & tasty. However it’s been YEARS since I’ve had it and thought it would be a great dish to reincorporate into our dinner rotation – only made from scratch with healthy real food ingredients. And one stop further made with spaghetti squash instead of pasta! But it would also be awesome with a gluten free elbow pasta if that’s what your family would prefer. You’ll notice there’s just one unusual ingredient in the recipe, Nutritional Yeast (buy HERE). It is what gives this dish the overly-cheesy flavor that replicates the cheeseburger macaroni helper we all remember. Although you can make it without, I promise it’s totally better with it. THIS brand of Nutritional Yeast is the only one that I use since it’s GMO & Gluten Free.
