Except you’re not done because we live in an age where food is not just a way to nourish your body, but also a serious fashion statement. If you don’t have at least quinoa, avocado, kale, goat cheese, chia seeds, or something with the word “organic” in your meal, then you’re doing it ALL wrong.

So, to make a really food-forward statement, we added in some peas to our mac n cheese today.

This is the super cool, super hip thing to do and we’ll just pretend that we bought them this morning at the farmer’s market, organic or course. No one has to know.

They are totally and completely ridiculous and you shouldn’t listen to ANY of them. Except, you should make this mac n cheese because it really is pretty tasty even if it is from a box ????
