This is my new favorite party dip. I’ve been making nacho cheese sauce for years, mixing the sauce from my Macaroni and Cheeze with salsa, but I really love this version for its flavor and for the fact that it contains no nuts, seeds, or nut butters. Instead, it gets some of its richness and color from mashed sweet potato. I start with a base of lightly-flavored cheese sauce and stir in a can of the original Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Chilies, which gives it a medium-spicy flavor. Rotel makes several flavors, so if you’re a spice-lover, you can use their hot version and if you don’t like the spicy, use the mild version. Whichever one you choose, you will be amazed at how rich and cheesy this spicy dip tastes.
Vegan Nacho Cheese Sauce
Use this luscious sauce as a dip or as an ingredient in burritos, tacos, or jalapeno poppers.

I watched my friend Leslie's weight loss journey with Beachbody for THREE YEARS before I finally decided to jump in. After that, it didn't take me long to wonder, "Why on earth did I wait so long?!"
But even once you do start down your own path, you need to be prepared for more waiting. True health is not achieved overnight; it takes hard work and dedication to nutrition, exercise and nurturing your spirit. You will need to be patient and willing to wait as long as it takes to reach your goal. No one program is going to be the right fit for everyone, but the person who never tries at all will spend their entire life waiting.
So what are you waiting for? If you're ready, I'm here. And I can't wait to help you.
Yum! (Seriously!) It took a little bit of trial and error to figure out the best way to crank out the noodles, but once I got the hang of it, it was very easy. As you can see from the picture, I also produced a few rotinis (bonus!), but no matter--it all tasted really good. There are a variety of ways you can cook the zoodles, but I chose to saute them in coconut oil (also part of CRC protocol). I ate some of them plain and the rest with marinara sauce. I definitely see putting this into our regular meal rotation!
