Vegan Cheese and Tofutti

Right now, me and my almost vegan mom are out ona quest to find a good vegan cheese. Colorado Springs isn’t the most vegan friendly town…(like there is basically nothing, i’ve never even met a vegan here)  But our local Whole Foods and Sunflower Market has a few things

Our first cheese we bought was


This. It wasn’t all that good. It is ok toasted over veggies or stirred in Chili Mac, but besides that? Nope.


Next was


and this is way better than the other stuff. It dosent melt all that well, but it kind of tastes like goat cheese slices…thats how i would describe it. I’m planning to try all the other flavors and the cream cheese as well. Do you guys have any suggestions about your favorite vegan cheese?


Also: From now on I’m going to do (drumroll) Monster Question Mondays! (I don’t know..trying to get my alliteration in here)

for this week..

What is the usual reply to when someone says to your being vegan, “I could never be a vegan!”?


  1. You guys don't have Daiya yet? That slicey stuff sucks for anything but putting on a sandwich, in my opinion. My favorite pre-Daiya cheese was Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet cheese, but I wouldn't touch it now as long as I can find Daiya. But honestly, I prefer using a nutritional yeast sauce for most things unless we need it to be realllly cheesy. In that case I recommend trying to find your nearest Daiya provider, even if you have to drive a ways.

    As for the other question, I will get back to you. Haha. People say that ALL. THE. TIME.

  2. I'm going to have to go look for it now. I keep reading about it. It must be good then!
    Haha. Understandable.
