Hello! I'm yet another newbie here. I'm trying to work my way into vegetarianism. Haven't quite gotten to vegan, although that is the ideal. I can't seem to shake the cheese habit. :0)

I have two cats and a dog. They are all raw-fed (two of them due to problems with tolerating kibble, though can't say I like feeding them kibble anyhow). I wrestle with the issue of buying meat cheaply (especially for the dog) and knowing it comes from highly unethical situations. I've been purchasing a free-range, grass-fed venison raw food from New Zealand to deal with this, but it's expensive! I think the dog's food costs more than mine
... but I love him to bits, so there you have it.

I'm glad I found this board... it looks like it will be a big help!

Hi there LilMo! Is that your doggy in your avatar? So cute
My name is Clare, welcome to the Veggieboards! I joined a few days ago.

I admit too, I get cheese cravings, but I recently found a couple of vegan cheese recipes, and some of the store bought can be quite good. When I get a craving I sometimes make some "cheese" nutritional yeast sauce. :B

Anyhoo, see you around!

Thanks for the welcome, Clare. The pup is my semi-dog. ;0) I adopted her and she and my dog were not a great match so now she lives with my mom. So cute, though.

I've been hearing quite a bit about the nutritional yeast cheese replacer so may have to give that a go.

Welcome!

Cheese can be a tough one to shake. When I was omni, I could go through an 8 ounce chunk a day. I would put it on everything and eat it as a snack. If you google 'cheese and addiction', there are some interesting ideas floating around about why it is so difficult to give up. But it is possible. I got over it by finding tasty recipes for non-dairy sauces. The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook by Jo Stepaniak is a good resource.

That is highly disturbing. I have a hard time giving up cheese myself, but I'm getting there! I just love the way my body feels when I eat right!
