Guilt-Free Mac ‘N Cheese Monday

Last night was my birthday dinner with my family. I allowed myself a “treat” meal and this is what I enjoyed at Wildfire.


A filet with blue cheese crust. I used to HATE blue cheese. Now, I’m a fan! YUM! Sorry for the half eaten pictures, it was just too scrumptious not to dig in right away!


Roasted mushroom caps. Delicious! I am definitely going to make a clean version of this!


My boyfriend, myself, my mom, my brother, and his girlfriend. What a fun night spending time with family!


Now onto what you may consider the most important part of the day! Guilt-free Mac ‘N Cheese Monday! This Mac ‘N Cheese recipe I’ve created is fat free & almost zero carb. How is that possible you say?? Let me show you! Winking smile

Guilt Free Mac ‘N Cheese



  • 2 bags of zero calorie noodles (miracle noodles, shirataki, NOoodles)
  • 4 ounces of Lifetime Fat Free Cheese (I like Cheddar & Swiss best)
  • Sea Salt
  • Non-stick spray

Step-By-Step How-To:

  1. Open 2 bags of zero calories noodles, rinse in colander.
  2. Dry “noodles” thoroughly with paper towels.
  3. Spray bowl with non-stick spray.
  4. Place dried “noodles” in bowl covered in non-stick spray.
  5. Cover bowl, microwave for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Grate 4 oz Lifetime fat free cheese (I like a combo of Cheddar & Swiss best).
  7. Put cheese and salt on “noodles,” mix.
  8. Microwave another 1-2 minutes, covered.
  9. Stir and mix noodles, cheese, & salt with fork until the cheese coats the noodles evenly.
  10. Microwave 1 minute, covered.
  11. ENJOY!! Open-mouthed smile


One of the varieties of Zero Calorie Noodles.


Lifetime Fat Free Cheese

All of the different flavors. Cheddar & Swiss are my favorites!


OOey-GOOey goodness!




SO SO good.



Try it and let me know how you like it! It’s one of my favorite guilt-free protein packed meals! 4 oz of Lifetime fat free cheese has 32 g of protein – more than a chicken breast!


I found after last night that a treat meal here and there (approximately once every week or two) is really good to help me get back on track with leaning out a bit and staying in the right state of mind. I can’t wait to do a full post on this in the future. I ROCKED my cardio this morning and am on the way to the gym with my hulk for some shoulders!! Have an AWESOME day today all you rockstars!

    I ‘heart’ treat meals!
    Makes the rest of the week so much more manageable. Of course, I have to make sure that a treat meal doesn’t turn into a treat day (or weekend!)

    This sounds AWESOME!!! I can’t wait to try this. I usually use the noodles for stir fry – never thought about a ‘mac n cheese’ THANKS for the idea!!

  6. Comment by Tara @ Sweat like a Pig:

    I have 1-2 treat meals a week. At the moment, I’m not watching my diet too closely so it doesn’t matter whether I have one or not, but I find that when I’m dieting I need those cheats or it’s too difficult!
