The End of Cheese as You Know It

Vegan Cheese That Melts

Do you think it would be too hard to give up dairy?

I felt this way for years until a friend of mine pointed out the link between the dairy and veal industries. (Thanks, Megan.) I knew right then I had to make the change. For more information on what’s wrong with dairy, click here.

I use to live on cheese. So if I can give it up, anyone can give it up. 15 years ago the soy cheese options weren’t so good. They didn’t melt and many actually included casein, a milk-by-product.

But now we live in 2007 and there are great vegan cheese alternatives. My favorite is Follow Your Heart brand. It tastes delicious and it melts! It comes in cheddar, mozzarella, nacho, and monterey jack flavors. You can buy it at Whole Foods, Wild Oats, and many natural food stores. If you don’t live near a store that sells this product, you can buy it online. See how easy this is?

You can use it on pizzas, sandwiches, nachos, anything really! For instance to use it on a pizza, you would put the pizza under the broiler for the last minute or two to melt it. Yum! Try it and let me know how you like it.
