Raw Foods – Cheese Substitutes

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Dairy Free Cheese

For many people, cheese is a beloved comfort food.  However, there is mounting evidence that dairy products can cause serious health problems ranging from allergies to cancer.  It tastes good, but it may not be that great for your health.

Going dairy-free is an excellent way to boost your energy and find a vibrant new zest for life!  It’s a great way to decrease health care costs as well.

Making the transition away from milk is pretty easy for most people.  There are so many substitutes for milk these days.  Typically, when you walk into a grocery store, you will find almond milk, soy milk, rice milk, hemp milk, and sometimes even coconut milk.  Some of them are sweetened and some are plain.  The milk substitutes even come in a chocolate flavor.

If you don’t want to buy your replacement milk, you can make it.  It is fairly easy to produce your own nut milk.  All you need are the right tools.  Namely, a nut milk bag and a blender.  You’d be surprised how simple it really is.

Healthy cheese substitutes are not so widely available.  Most of the commercial non-dairy cheese substitutes are not actually dairy-free.  They are usually soy-based and they contain casein.  Casein is a protein found in milk.  It is the most common cause of dairy allergies.  So, I’m not really sure why it is included in the dairy substitutes.  Some commercial cheese-substitutes are better than others, but they’re all highly processed and contain questionable ingredients such as canola oil.

Finding a healthy and nourishing cheese substitute was pretty near impossible, until now!  You can learn to make your own cheese.  Your home-made, dairy-free cheese substitute will be complete with probiotics to support gut health and other nutrient dense ingredients that you wouldn’t find in those commercial options.

You can enjoy sliceable, spreadable, and deliciously tangy cheese while empowering your immune system at the same time!

Our cheeses are made from raw nuts and seeds, probiotics, lemon juice, seasonings and binders such as Irish moss or psyllium husk.  They are wonderfully nutritious and tasty additions to any diet.

It is available in video form.  You can learn how to create our soft ricotta, our cheese ball rolled in nuts, white and cheddar cheese blocks, macadamia nut feta, swiss cheese slices, and beautiful party spread comprised of white cheese-substitute topped with pesto and sun dried tomatoes.  The textures and flavors are so exciting, you won’t believe it’s dairy free!

These cheese substitutes are exquisitely beautiful and authentic!  I gave two types of cheese to my dear friend and colleague Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo for Christmas.  One was a block of spreadable cheese and another was firm and in the form of slices.  She ate them up on chia crackers sprinkled with sunflower sprouts!

It’s amazing to enjoy the tangy creaminess of cheese, while escaping the health issues associated with dairy products.  It is a wonderfully nutritious way to replenish your gut with probiotics!

We are expecting this class to be one of our most popular so far.  If you cannot attend the class in person, please join us through webcast or watch the video afterwards!  It’s going to be exciting!
