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?
It's been about 10 months now since the video was published, however, and the negative feedback has since died down (that's the beauty of the internet, remember). But then last week @TheFitFood decided to share the video on their page and a whole new group of people revolted against these mac and cheese crimes.
Most people were pretty upset about the color of the mac and cheese, which looks electric and almost fake.
normally if the mac & cheese is green I throw that out, no food poisoning for me— Kermanetherunner (@KermaneB) August 20, 2017
Other people on Twitter blamed millennials for all of this nonsense.
Millennials will never be able to afford their dream homes because they're spending all their money of avocado mac and cheese!— Jason Diamond (@imjasondiamond) August 20, 2017
And then other people just posted a GIF to explain their overall feelings.
