Surfing / Wind Chimes / Mac n’ Cheese

Chase gets gnarly and rips some waves! Surfing looks totally different when Chase hangs with an expert for a few pointers. Back at the Fuel Lab, one of Daja’s favorite recipes gets a healthy makeover. Healthy Mac n’ Cheese, anyone? And she brings some of the beach back from vacation for a shell wind chime project!

Fuel Lab

1. Bring water to a boil and add the pasta.

2. Cook the pasta for 5-6 minutes then add vegetables and cook until the pasta is done, approximately another 3-4 minutes.

4. Next, add the half and half, cheddar and parmesan cheese, stirring the mixture until the cheese has melted.

5. Sprinkle with the lemon juice and combine.

6. Garnish with more parmesan cheese and parsley if desired.


Tip – Fat-free and low-fat cheese have the same amount of calcium and other essential nutrients as the full-fat versions, but fewer calories and less saturated fat. Do a taste test, can you even tell the difference between the low-fat and regular versions?
