Twitter Is Not Happy About This “Low-Calorie” Avocado Mac & Cheese — Food Media

When the internet revolts against a "healthy" recipe, things can get ugly pretty fast. So when Glow by PopSugar created a video for a "low-cal" avocado mac and cheese recipe back in November 2016, it quickly went viral, but not necessarily for a good reason. You see, the brand suggested subbing in avocado for traditional cheese, but then added goat cheese to the mix and topped it with low-cal mozzarella. They also topped the mac and cheese with gluten-free bread crumbs (almonds!) but then failed to say they were using gluten-free pasta. So what was the point of this recipe?

Twitter Is Obsessed With This Brilliant Way to Save Recipes — Food Media

The way we have saved our favorite recipes has changed drastically in the last couple decades. Recipe cards were the norm in the past, alongside clipping recipes out of magazines and newspapers. But then came the internet, and with it new ways to keep track of recipes were available, including Paprika and Pinterest. It can't get much easier than these digital, right? What could possibly be better?

Seriously, how brilliant is that?
