VegNewsTV: Simple Vegan Sweet Potato Macaroni and Cheese

I present to you my second video contribution too VegNewsTV. Of all the vegan macaroni and cheese recipes out there, none has really seemed that appealing. I am not a fan of nut cheeses or artificial vegan “cheese” found at the grocer. Nut cheeses are heavy and unnatural to eat – you’d be surprised the volume of nuts it takes to make a small amount of “cheese”. Packaged vegan cheeses are full of preservatives, strange ingredients, and coloring – the farthest thing from “real”.  But a sweet potato with some spices? That I can work with. The result tastes quite amazing as well.

Why do sweet potatoes fit the glow bill, you ask?

Sweet potato: is high in vitamin B6 that helps reduce degenerative diseases, is packed with vitamin C and D, helps maintain skin’s youthful elasticity, contributes to healthy bones, heart, nerves, skin, and teeth, supports the thyroid gland, contains iron for white cell production, stress reduction and immune function, works as an anti-stress and relaxing agent due to its magnesium content, regulates heartbeat and nerve signals with potassium, has sugars that are slowly released into the bloodstream and thus don’t cause sugar spikes, and are high in carotenoids and antioxidants to help ward off cancer.

    Now that it’s nearly fall, sweet potato sauce seems like an even better idea than usual. Hooray!
