I have been dairy free for about a year now, and I used to love cheese! I mean, the bluer the cheese the better. Eating a lot of cheese never actually made me feel good, but it would be the price I’d pay for some cheesy pizza or creamy pastas.
I went dairy free quite early on in my health journey, and just got used to not eating any cheese or yogurt. Also, living in Asia, cheese can be quite pricey and was not something I would want to spend a lot of money on.
(After going vegan, I knew there were a lot of vegan cheese options, but they are even harder to find in Thailand. Just this weekend I found some vegan cheese options for the first time in Bangkok in a International supermarket! And as strange as it may seem, I didn’t end up buying any! I was so used to my own delicious cheese sauces that I didn’t feel like spending (way too much) money on, although vegan, processed cheese. It is for sure nice to have it as an option for when I am craving a wine and cheese kind of night, but knowing I can make my own version in abunda
nce is a good feeling. )
