Not that there’sanything wrong with it! We love whipping up cookies and breads in the kitchen — they’re tasty, and — let’s be honest — helping with our current stress levels.

But mixed in with all that baking, we kinda-sorta feel compelled to eat a vegetable once in a while. (Or keeping it real, we realized we hadn’t eaten any in a few days and were in desperate need of something green.) And what’s an easy way to make kids (and us) eat more veggies? Make them Disney World veggies, of course!

We scoured our huge collection of authentic Disney World recipes and pulled our favorite (semi) healthy ones — and here they are for you to enjoy! These are so good, and they go perfectly on the side of all our baked goods. 🙂

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Sure, it’s still creamy cheesy mashed potatoes. But they swapped out half the potatoes for cauliflower so that counts for something, right?
