My greatest challenge in the transition to a vegan lifestyle has been cheese. I even came across information about the new blood type diet program and for B types dairy is a passion. I've never been fond of milks. My yogurt went peacefully. But that wonderful creamy texture of my beloved cheese has been a problem. Especially since the vegan "cheese alternatives" pretty much suck, though are kind of ok in cooking. But still, they do pretty much suck - and stink - and are really expensive
I found what I've been after in avocados. They have that same creamy texture. And they are in season right now. Not sure what I'll do in the winter when the price jumps this winter. And it isn't exactly local food here in North Carolina. But for now I'm in heaven.
