Veggie Mac & Cashew Cheese Chowder

Sometimes life is about making guilty pleasures a little bit better for yourself. Cashew cheese has substantially less saturated fat than real cheese. The Cassava macaroni won't save you carbs, but it has no saturated fat at all, fewer calories, and double the amount of fiber you find in traditional macaroni.
