Cheese made without cow's milk or goat's milk is gaining in popularity. It tastes similar to the originals styles, has great texture, and offers new flavors and uses which makes it exciting and a great complement to food. In fact, it can be used as a spread, mixed into meals, and even used as a topping on salads to add an extra flavor element.
Plant-based cheese is made from a variety of ingredients including cashews, walnuts, pine nuts, macadamia nuts, and even plain oats. Because it doesn't contain dairy, it's cholesterol free and lighter on the stomach and palate. It can be very refreshing and easy to replace regular cheese in the future in your everyday favorites.
As many people who desire to convert to plant-based diets will attest, giving up cheese is one of the hardest challenges. Sanctury Vegan Cheeze, based in Mojave, California, has a wide range of cheeze flavors that make eating cheese replacements a welcome option. Try their American Style Cheeze made from oats, or Ricotta made from macadamia nuts, and of course, the chèvre made from cashews with a very earthy flavor.
My favorite on so many meals I cook is the Parmesan Style made from pine nuts. The flavor is wonderful and makes the transition from regular parmesan a treat. You can order Sanctuary Vegan Cheeze on Treatmo and have it shipped to your home in cold packaging. Choose 4 - 8 items for the same shipping price and enjoy the great flavors.

If you visit NYC a want to check out the latest vegan restaurants that are shaping the cuisine, then make your way to Washington Sqaure Park in lower Manhattan. The West 4th Street Station can be reached by the A, C, D, E, and F trains. The park is an enjoyable place to relax in Greenwich Village before you start eating. When Manhattan was smaller in size, the area was used as a local military training ground. In the 1960s, it was the center of the burgeoning artistic culture of the city. Now the surround area hosts enough vegan restaurants to keep you busy for your entire time.
