Going vegan seems like a daunting process for many because they feel they could never “give up” cheese.  It has been proven that cheese is addictive (Google it), and like many others, it was the last animal product I omitted from my diet on my journey to veganism.

I have found a frozen dessert that is better than ice cream.  Seriously.  Who needs dairy when something so rich, creamy and delicious comes from a tree?  There isn’t even any soy in it, which makes it a delicious choice for those who have issues with or allergies to soy products. Purely Decadent’s new non-dairy [...]
