Go Large With a Big Mac 'n' Cheese

·1-min read

You will need:

  • Macaroni, ½ mug

  • Boiling water, ¼ mug

  • Milk, ¼ mug

  • Grated cheese. ¼ mug

  • Flavourless whey protein, ¼ mug

  • Chili flakes, to taste

Time to make: 10min

Calories: 259kcal

Protein: 21.5g

Sat fat: 3.9g


To make this simple, you’re going to use your mug. Measure the pasta out and pour into a bowl with the boiling water on top. Put in the microwave on full for 2min intervals, stirring each time. The ‘mac’ should be done in 6-8min.


Now for the big cheese. Mix together the milk and the protein, both of which will limit the blood-sugar spike of the pasta, then stir in the cheese and chilli. If you haven’t got flavour-free whey, do make do with ‘chocolate brownie’ or ‘vanilla cheesecake’. Please.


Pour your high-protein cheese mixture on top of the cooked pasta, add a bit of salt and pepper, then stick the lot back in the microwaves for another 30sec blast on high. Stir then repeat twice more. Then enjoy your fast, muscle fuel in comfort.
