I recently returned from a trip to SF to visit my folks. When with them, I usually purchase a quart size of unsweetened soy yogurt. This trip, there was none to be found. I purchased something I had never seen before- a 24 oz size of an unsweetened cashew yogurt from a local company. It was delicious! It was lighter in feel, smoother, and more tangy than store-bought soy yogurt. The ingredient list is quite brief. I'm better off making my foodstuffs from scratch. Nonetheless, I look forward to this treat on my next return to SF.

NEUROMANTIC: Does your concern for cows extend to other vertebrates such as fish? Can the salmon be given to a food pantry? Soup kitchen? A friend?

I did quit dairy. checked the vegan dairy section at store, had some ice cream but no yogrt. I have frozen salmon in the freezer.huge cheat. was already a grudge within my self, now it is just harder. I am still not decided if I should cheat occasionally and eat that fish. buy more? it would be harder.

my self can't tolerate buying/eating more yogurt. it's cows that I care for first, then my health. what? yeah guess I didn't think dairy is bad. yeah my body already says maybe I should have stayed off dairy when I quit years ago. but I didn't ever feel different when I went more or less vegan years ago

Hello hello! Good to see you Petalia.

I've tried various non-dairy yogurts and have to say that Daiya is my favorite. I've eaten some yummmmmy non dairy ice creams as well. In moderation. OF COURSE.

I support you wherever you are on your path. I do hope you branch out and try non-dairy yogurts and cheeses and such when you are feeling adventurous!

No need to miss yogurt. There are various non-diary yogurts available. For savory dishes I make (and you can purchase by the quart) a non-sweetened soy-yogurt.

Something frozen and cheat-like....there is a plethora of vegan sweet foodstuffs that would fit that criteria. There are loads of vegan calorie-dense, highly processed, junky 'foods,' too. There are also sweet, frozen, vegan treats that aren't processed and junky. Some begin with a frozen banana and end up like a smooth sorbet.

No worries; bit by bit those personal extras can be supplanted by some delicious vegan ones. That is, if you would like them to be. Enjoy the process!

P.S. I LOVE frozen grapes. Wash, take them off their stems, freeze in a sack. Just one grape relished at a time. Astounding. Raisins are my downfall. I can eat 20 raisins in less time than it takes to have one frozen grape. Water rich foods are for me!

so I will miss yogurt; and I won't name the huge cheat I have in the freezer that I might excuse myself for now. even as a vegetarian my cheat choices were very difficult mentally. yeah I still consider myself vegetarian anyway. I excuse myself but I don't ignore my choices
