Colleen Patrick-Goudreau tackles a common issue for vegetarians transitioning to veganism or even meat eaters moving towards a plant based diet. Many feel they can give up everything except cheese.
She talks about the importance of doing everything you can and if this is the one thing you can't give up- do everything else you possibly can to live a more compassionate life and maybe one day you will be able to say 'no' to cheese.
Colleen also reassures you that one day you may not feel so drawn to cheese and that if you give your palate time to adjust to new flavours and textures you might find a non-dairy based cheese that will do the trick. What you are looking for is a certain taste and texture, which can be satisfied by vegan cheese if you are willing to give it a go.
A useful piece of advice from Colleen might be to watch videos and read up on the lives of dairy cows and the health implications of eating dairy-based cheese.
