It’s becoming widely known that dairy just isn’t healthy. We all grew up on milk and dairy, and now we’re finding that it simply has too many hormones and other nasty stuff that we need to avoid. Problem is, cheese is just so tasty and addictive that many people can’t give it up.
That’s where vegan nut cheeses come in! Now you can have your cheese, queso, nachos, whatever you like, without the guilt or health consequences later! Whether it’s cashew cheese, almond cheese, etc…they all, when made correctly, truly do give a cheesy taste and are gaining popularity every day. You can make macaroni and cheese, nachos, tacos, whatever you’d like without worrying about the harmful effects of dairy. Vegan cheese is light years tastier than some of the healthy food alternatives were just a few years ago.
This is a super simple amazingly tasty recipe for cashew cheese queso that will honestly satisfy your cheese craving and let you feel totally indulgent while still being totally healthy, which is what we all want, right? It’s basically like a vegan velveeta. You could probably even make a tasty Rotel dip with it.
When I first heard about this I wrinkled my nose at it. I’ve never liked cauliflower and my first and only attempt at making cauliflower rice for a stir fry left me with mush. So when I tried this recipe I was skeptical. Fortunately this time instead of using a powered food processor I used a hand crank variety and the cauliflower consistency came out much better.
I was still skeptical even as I was putting the crust into the oven to cook. It looked soupy and I wondered if this was going to be a complete disaster.
Fortunately I was mistaken and was rewarded with a golden brown crust that was extremely tasty and totally passes for a regular pizza crust! I urge you to try this cauliflower pizza crust recipe and enjoy! Gluten free and totally healthy, depending on the cheeses you choose!
We happened to choose ground turkey and regular cheeses for ours, but in the future I’ll try cashew cheese or perhaps goat cheese on my cauliflower pizza crust!
Seaweed. It truly is the ocean’s superfood, and a mighty tasty one at that. Thousands of varieties of seaweed grow in the earth’s oceans and lakes, but only a few varieties are edible by man. Those edible varieties contain much higher levels of healthy minerals and amino acids than land vegetables. Plus, there’s an inherent saltiness and umami (fifth savory taste sensation) that adds a nice kick to any meal. It provides iodine for the thyroid, lowers the bad LDL cholesterol, and has antiviral and anticancer properties along with lessening blood clots. Pretty awesome, right?
Here’s a tasty seaweed salad recipe you can add to any meal any time of day! It’s from Food.com. You’ll thank me when you try it!
