Hey guys, just wanted to share some amazing vegan cheese recipes I've found.
Best Ever Vegan Mac & Cheese | Vegangela
They're way better than the store-bought ones! They actually don't taste vegan.
I've been a vegetarian for two years now, but sadly didn't manage to switch to a vegan diet yet.
I'd love that, though, I gave up milk (I take soy one instead) but it isn't actually that easy for cheese.
I heard that caseine can be addictive and has a similar effect to morfine itself, and that's the reason it's hardest to give up cheese than meat or fish.
Is that true and what do you think about that?
I think you are referring to casomorphin, which has an opioid effect that releases histamine, which would cause an allergic effect rather than addictive. But who knows, those things are quite complicated, and there aren't enough conclusions from studies yet, at least from the little I searched now. You could always try to switch to cheese made from other milk than cow's.
Sadly I don't like tofu. Any other alternative?
A friend of mine asked recipes for non-creamy soups. I normally don't eat soups that much and I use oats cream for my soups so naturally they are creamy more or less. And of course there's basic soups cooked with water, either a) mashed or b) left in big cubes.
How do you make your soups? Do you have any recipes to share?
I know others like to weigh and measure everything and write everything down so that they can repeat the recipe, but I don't cook much from recipes. I cook intuitively, just adding things I think may work. Sometimes, I'll make something and my guests will say, "this is really good, I can I have the recipe?" and I'll just have to describe it like I did above. They'll ask, "yes, but how much? how long do you cook it?" I never know, I just fake it.
Haven't kept up with your for a while so it's possible that you've already fielded this one.
Kale. Other than juicing it, making kale chips and adding it to salads, what are some other tasty ways to prepare it. We grew some in our garden for the first time this year and we have more than we can keep up with!
