10 Best: Vegan Cheese Slideshow!

As a vegan blogger the number one question I get asked is about how one goes about kicking their dairy habit. The most notable dairy-delicious food items: ice cream and cheese. As a former cheese addict, I know what it means to love, adore and crave cheese. On any shopping trip, you could find me hovering in the cheese section – sniffing creamy cuts of brie and robust pepperjack – a blissful look on my face. My favorite foods involved cheese. Grilled cheese, cheese pizza, cheese and crackers – and don’t get me started on my love of ricotta and Mozzarella laced lasagna. But eventually I conquered my dairy habit. Dairy cheese actually turns me off now! Today, vegan cheese is something I lust for, swoon over and crave. And it is all thanks to some amazing vegan alternatives to classic dairy cheese. Find out my 10 best dairy-free, vegan cheese options!..
