Daiya : The Cheese That Will Change The World

But HOLY SHIT! IT’S NOT CHEESE

In Sanskrit, Dayaa means “loving, kindness and compassion”. What an appropriate name for a vegan cheese alternative that doesn’t make my belly hurt or give me heart burn! This stuff is better than an over pants orgasm. Especially since it is free of artificial ingredients, gluten, soy, corn, nuts, preservatives, AND has 33% less fat than typical cheese! Woo Hoo!  Now I can eat guilt free pizza every day! Ok maybe not, but I think you understand how exciting this is…

At this point you must be asking, “So… what is it?’ Well The main ingredient in Daiya is Cassava, which is another name for Yuca; a woody shrub native to South America.  This Tuberous root is rich in calcium and vitamin C and containa a nutritionally significant quantity of thiamine. It is also what gives us tapioca! Yum! Other whole food ingredients include Arrowroot and pea protein.

So off with you!!! Go make a poutine, or a pizza or a grilled cheeze or something!!
