Aug 22, 2017

While the Internet can rarely agree on the same thing (case in point: whether or not a certain dress is black and blue or gold and white) when it comes to the important discussions like how to prepare mac and cheese, they've come to an emphatic consensus: it is never a good idea to substitute cheese for avocados.

The Internet was in an uproar this weekend after healthy food Twitter account @TheFitFood posted a video of a 2015 PopSugar recipe for low calorie avocado macaroni and cheese recipe substituted millennials' favorite ingredient, avocado (along with a tiny bit of goat cheese) in lieu of cheese in the comfort food staple.

Needless to say, the Internet was outraged and immediately took to the web to voice their opinions on the matter.

Some people were turned off by the hue of the new recipe.

It inspired a slew of displeased GIFs.

One person even turned to Randy Jackson to voice their thoughts about it.
