they ate mac and cheese like 4 times a week and pizza the other 3 nights. wife refused to cook before the malnourished bit because she had accidentally caught a kitchen on fire once.

OK, question: how do you make the cheese sauce? Every recipe I have made ends up being to thick, dry and almost grainy when I do lobster mac or shrimp mac.

The trick to making fantastic smooth-as-silk cheese sauce is to use evaporated milk (yes, the stuff in a can) instead of regular milk or cream.
Look up "John Thorne's Macaroni Cheese" for details.

>> No.11509993

That can work. My wife's family makes it that way. Throw a little butter in plus some pepper to finish it off and you've something similar to a casserole. Leave it in long enough and you get a crisp outer shell. I like to sprinkle tomatoes on top and let them bake in with the crisp layer.

My favorite way to go, though, is the white sauce with cheese in it method because I grew up cooking it that way.

>mac and cheese is for children m8
It clearly isn't. It's a cheap and easy staple food that people of all ages eat, and if anything, the age demographic that really stands out is young adults. You could also tell that's the case because of all the "deluxe" Cracker Barrel type brands that have come out in recent years. That's not marketing for kids, it's marketing for adults who want fancier macaroni and cheese. These aren't packaged with a bunch of cartoon animals and vibrant colors. They're packaged with stylistic minimalism and focus on things like the macaroni texture, quality credentials ("award winning"), and an understated shot of a couple nice looking cheese off squares at the bottom left of the macaroni. This sort of marketing would not exist if the demographic data these companies have been collecting agreed with your claim that only children were consuming macaroni and cheese at a high rate. You don't see new products like that launched across the board by all the major brands just to try to increase a low rate demographic's consumption. You want to increase consumption, but you also want some guarantee that the consumers you're going after are already buying more than average so you don't invest tons of money into a failure.

you realize 100 years ago the average human diet was literally 90 percent carbs, right? And those people were incredibly thin/fit compared to most modern man.

The true answer is basically in/out but it's also more complex than that.

Simple carbs fuck you up, the processed shit will rot you out slowly after time. Unprocessed carbs and starches won't make you gain weight even if it's 100 percent of your intake... in fact you can eat fuck tons of carbs that way and gain literally no weight.
I did it and ate 95 percent unprocessed carbs for a month. Ended up losing weight on accident and in the end had the same kind of energy keto gave me when I tried it.

TLDR; carbs/protein/fat all basically don't have ideal ratios, you can eat as much of any as you want whenever you want assuming they're unprocessed/not saturated it's the healthiest shit you can put in your body.
