Share with us tips on making 100% bad-for-you food only like 85% bad for you!

Me, I've got a life long love affair with Kraft Deluxe Mac & Cheese (the one w the foil pouch of goop) and Velveeta Shells & Cheese, which makes me feel guiltier by the year. To combat this as of late, I've taken to adding half a bag of cooked Trader Joe's shelled edamame. It tastes even better and I can pretend its sort of healthy!

We always had peas in macaroni and cheese as kids, it still feels wrong without them.

What?! Peas are the greatest vegetable ever. I put them in all kinds of pasta stuff.

Lately I've been using Greek yogurt in place of cream in place of cream in recipes that call for it. Works out pretty well usually.

I can handle peas, but sweetcorn tastes like old people's rancid fallen out teeth.

Corn is disgusting. My mother would deliberately give me a double helping when I was little, I still feel traumatized.

My mother just dropped off 2 dozen ears of the best sweet corn -- fooey on corn haters.

I love using Greek yogurt as a substitute for sour cream on tacos, chili, and baked potatoes. To me, the difference in taste is negligible. Unfortunately, knowing that it's not as bad for me as sour cream, I inevitably wind up using way more!
