Mac and Cheese w/Broccoli and Califlower!

I have a small daycare in my home so not only am I trying to prepare healthy meals for my family but also many other toddlers! My kids love Mac and Cheese, what kid doesn't! I started by putting pureed cauliflower in my Mac and Cheese, I think this idea originally came from watching Oprah a year or so ago, my kids loved it! I decided to take it a step further and added chunky broccoli to it as well. I add the broccoli before I even start boiling the noodles so it is extra soft and really takes in all the cheesy flavor! My pickiest eater even asked for seconds of this one!! His Mom and Dad said they tried at home to give him broccoli but it didn't work! I guess my Mac and Cheese has that special touch!

Do you have a recipe like this? Is there something you do to get your family to eat healthier and they don't even know it? My friend, Katie is having a contest on her blog and the price is "Deceptivly Delicious" by Jessica Seinfeld. If you have want to check out ideas for other contest entries or have an idea of your own to share then check out her blog
