Grilling

Mac N Cheese Please! A quick meal plan

No one likes being on a diet. Mainly because it means there is a long list of foods we enjoy that we can no longer eat. What I have learned most on Weight Watchers is how to structure meals so that I can enjoy the foods I love. If I can eat mac & cheese on a diet, I can probably stick with it. Here’s how you can do it too.
