If you’ve recently given up dairy, the search for good vegan cheese has probably begun! Are you looking for a good vegan cheese for your pizzas, toppings and baked dishes? There are so many new brands of vegan cheese on the market that it can be overwhelming to know which non-dairy cheese substitutes taste yummy and actually melt.

The first EVER vegetarian food festival that took place in Chelsea on Sunday, April 4th was a PHENOMENAL event! It was an amazing arena of super yummy vegan products like: Teese vegan mozzarella cheese, Sweet & Sara marshmallows, raw vegan ice cream, Gnosis raw vegan chocolate and soooo much more! The event’s keynote speaker was Dr. Neal Barnard, President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). Dr. Barnard discussed the positive effects that a plant-based diet can have on cholesterol, type II diabetes and joint pain. He introduced the 21-day Vegan kickstart, a program designed to help beginners explore a plant-based diet.
