This recipe for low fat raw vegan cauliflower cheese is incredibly easy and delicious. Not only will you be getting cheese replacement, but even a boost of cruciferous vegetables! These are a group of vegetables that I recommend consuming daily, including 9 more foods:
Quitting that Dairy Habit
I love cheese, and it has been one of my biggest addictions, hardest to get rid of in the realm of unhealthy foods. But with such amazing alternatives, I have been able to overcome this mucus-causing, acidic substance, which is not fit for human consumption. And this raw vegan cauliflower cheese is one example.
One of the best things you can do for your health is get rid of your dairy habit. You will feel incredible, and see wonderful changes in your body. Replace your old favorites, like milk, cheese, and yogurt, with non-dairy alternatives made of nuts and seeds.
Raw Vegan Cheese
The only issue with many raw vegan cheese recipes is that they are extremely high in fat, and often use oils. I always advocate removing oil from your diet, because it is extremely calorie dense, rather than nutrient dense, and it crowds out other nutrients that you should be having. It is easier to be nutrient-deficient than calorie deficient in our day and age! With the cruciferous cauliflower in this raw vegan cauliflower cheese, you’ll be getting plenty of nutrition, while still eating low fat.
An awesome way to decrease fat from your recipes is by adding delicious vegetables, such as cucumbers, bell peppers, zucchinis, cauliflower, carrots, and tomatoes. These veggies will take up bulk in your recipe, but they will do so without adding fat content.
