#42: All About Vegan Cheese

"But I could never give up cheese!" We hear this all the time, and if feel that way (or know someone who does), this episode is for you. We talk about why people are so attached to dairy-based cheese, how to break the habit, and we share our favorite plant-based cheeses available today.

Hi friends,

In today’s podcast, we talk about everything cheese! There are so many great options out there and it makes us so happy to even be able to talk about the different varieties of vegan cheeses that are now in existence! From home made to store-bought cheese, we talk about our favorites and also our tips on how to save money trying them out!

❤ Michelle + Toni

P.S. Our new book The Friendly Vegan Cookbook is now available and a very nice reminder that you can have all your cheesy favorites without dairy.
