Not even Kourtney Kardashian, a self-professed lover of organic produce and crowned queen of the racy swimsuit, can resist indulging every now and then.

But instead of reaching for the choccie block or polishing off a bag of Smiths like the rest of us mere mortals, her cheat-meal of choice is totally guilt-free (coz, health.)

In a recent interview with PEOPLE, the mum-of-three shared her version of the humble comfort food classic, mac and cheese. And it turns out this recipe is so g-damn delish, her whole family are converted.

“Who doesn’t love mac ‘n’ cheese?!” she quipped.

“I use all organic ingredients, gluten-free noodles and non-dairy cheese whenever possible, as my kids and I aren’t eating gluten or dairy.” 

To change up the traditionally decadent recipe, Kourtney incorporates simple substitutes like nut milk and vegan cheeses. She also prefers to use turkey bacon (as it contains less fat and sodium than regular pork bacon) and opts for organic ingredients wherever possible.

“I bake this on the top rack of the oven so it gets crunchy on top,” she explained. “I love the mix of flavours and textures. YUMMMMMMY!” 

She suggests to use the below as a base and add in veggies for extra freshness.

Brb, gotta go wipe the drool off our faces.

Women Fleeing Domestic Violence Can Now Receive A One-Off Support Payment

It’s been labelled the shadow pandemic and the fact remains that for many women across Australia, domestic violence is a lived reality that doesn’t discriminate by age, occupation, or socio-economic status. Researchers have found that during Covid-19 lockdowns, there was a surge in family and domestic violence, with agencies experiencing a surge in demand as nearly half their clients reported an increase in controlling behaviours. 

As many who have lived through such turmoil and trauma can attest, the roadmap to fleeing such situations at home can be fraught with challenges and extremely difficult to navigate, particularly when such bureaucracy makes it even harder. Now, it’s been announced that women fleeing a violent relationship will be given a one-off $5,000 payment as part of a federal government trial scheme. 

Known as the “escaping violence payment scheme,” the government has set aside $144.5 million over the next two years to give women $1,500 cash, with the remainder to pay for goods and services, bond, school fees and other necessaries to establish a new safe home. UnitingCare Network will be tasked with delivering the payments while helping link women and their children with relevant community services. 

As the Daily Telegraph reports, “An analysis of domestic violence data by the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows that while it is more common for women from poorer areas, women from high socio-economic areas are not immune from experiencing partner violence.”

As Women’s Safety Minister Anne Ruston explained, the trial has been introduced with the aim to help women overcome the financial barriers that might deter them from leaving a violent relationship. “We know that financial hardship as well as economic abuse - which may involve interfering with work or controlling or withholding money - reduces women’s ability to acquire and use money and makes it difficult to leave violent relationships,” she said. 

“The payments will assist people who need financial support to leave. We know the size of the house a woman is fleeing doesn’t matter. Often she bundles the kids into the car, maybe the dog too and they leave with nothing more than the clothes on their backs.”

To be eligible for a payment, women must be facing financial stress and have some evidence of domestic violence such as a referral from a family and domestic violence service provider with a risk assessment and safety plan, or an AVO, court order or police report. As UnitingCare Australia National Director Claerwen Little said, “We believe that all people, especially women and their children, have the right to live freely and without fear, and this payment is an important step forward to ending violence against women and children.”
