Kourtney Kardashian Has a Healthy Bacon Mac and Cheese Recipe You Can Try at Home
Kourtney Kardashian is one of the most health-conscious of all her sisters. Although she admitted she does allow herself to have some cheat days, she cut out processed foods and recently began the keto diet. But Kourtney has admitted that macaroni and cheese is the “perfect comfort food.” Read on to find out a healthy way you can make the dish just like the reality star.
Kourtney explains that eating dairy used to affect her skin
The mother of three has become an advocate for clean-eating.
“I felt like there wasn’t really [a resource] for a woman who is healthy and into wellness but also sexy and cool,” the Poosh founder said during an interview with Health Magazine. “There is this image out there of the woman who cares about eating organic and feeding her kids that way that is somehow uncool. That’s not the case, and I wanted to make something that embodied my passions and interests.”
Kourtney also told the publication, “In my house, we are gluten and dairy-free. My skin is very sensitive, and if I eat dairy, it affects it. I love doing a keto diet, though I’m not doing it now. I noticed my body change for the better. I love intermittent fasting. I try to do that all the time. Sometimes if I’ve had a normal day of eating and I’m pretty full, instead of having dinner, I’ll have some bone broth, especially if I’m not feeling well or starting to get sick.”
How to make her favorite comfort food
So you must be wondering how Kourtney makes bacon mac and cheese on a gluten and dairy-free diet. Well, she uses all organic ingredients and gluten-free noodles as well as non-dairy cheeses. Oh and she still does use bacon; turkey bacon that is. The eldest of the Kar-Jenner siblings previously shared her recipe with People.
To make Kourtney’s turkey bacon macaroni and cheese you’ll need the following ingredients:
*Serves 8 to 10
6 tbsp. organic butter
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
3 cups organic pepper jack cheese (or a non-dairy cheese substitute like Kourtney uses)
3 cups organic mild cheddar cheese (or a non-dairy cheese substitute)
1 package of gluten-free macaroni noodles
1 tsp. dry mustard
5 cups almond milk
½ cup organic flour
1 package pre-cooked and crisped chopped organic turkey bacon
Then, follow these step-by-step instructions:
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Next, prepare the noodles according to package directions.
Melt butter, then add in flour, salt, dry mustard, pepper, and almond milk. Stir for 10 minutes until thick, over medium heat. Then add in the cheese and melt completely.
Pour cheese over fully cooked noodles and mix well before placing it in an oven-safe pan or dish. Finally, bake for approximately 45 minutes until crisp.
