This Three Minute Veggie Mac is easy, delicious, and fast too! Thanks Horizon for sponsoring this super easy and delicious lunch!This Three Minute Veggie Mac is easy, delicious, and fast too!

If you ask my kids what they want for lunch, literally any day of the week, they will say mac ‘n cheese. I’m not kidding. It doesn’t matter if they had it the day before, it doesn’t matter if they had it the last three days. Mac ‘N Cheese.

And their favorite kind of mac ‘n cheese is Horizon. It’s what we always give them. I love it because it has organic ingredients, 7 grams of protein, and it’s a fast meal for them. They love it because it’s delicious. Duh.

So let’s talk about this quick and easy lunch option that I kicked up a notch. You start with a Horizon Microwaveable Mac and Mild Cheddar Cheese.

Pour in 1/3 cup of water. Note:  This is less than the amount that Horizon suggests, because we are going to toss in some veggies that will add moisture.

Microwave for two minutes. Stir in the packet of cheese.

Now toss in 1/4 cup frozen peas and carrots. Yup. Frozen. Right from the freezer.

I love this as a quick easy meal for my kids at home, but also for college kids! A bunch of these and a bag of frozen veggies in their mini fridge? Perfect. Also for at work! Keep a bag of frozen veggies at work, or just bring them along in a baggie, it’s cool if they thaw a little.

True story:  This bowl got packed up in a tupperware and sent with Gavin to school the next day. He loved it! Ate every last little bit. Sent with a cut up apple, it was a lunch that I felt awesome about. Way better than hot lunch, and cheaper too.
