Can you believe it?! I actually don't miss cheese in my diet! Before I chose to live vegan, I used to eat it EVERYDAY! Bought gigantic, warehouse-sized bags of it every week! I grew up on the stuff! And now I never even think about it...
I miss cheese so little that I hardly even buy the dairy-free alternatives like Follow Your Heart or Daiya, which I used to rely on more heavily as a "younger" vegan. These brands are a taste treat, don't get me wrong, only I don't need to consume them on any regular basis. And no one is more amazed by this than I...
While talking to my Jordan the other day about this very subject, he confided that he feels the same--he doesn't pine for cheese either. We both just shrugged our shoulders and laughed at how far we've come. It is a liberating feeling to finally be "weaned" (pun intended) :) from such a fatty, artificial, and cruel product. Mostly, I just feel grateful.
Many people think they cannot live without cheese. They're wrong. It's an addiction that CAN be broken.
I'm proof of that.
