For many vegetarians looking to shift to an all-vegan diet, giving up cheese is often the Mt. Everest of obstacles. Actress Kristen Bell, perhaps best known for her staring role in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”, would like everyone to know, however, that the fake stuff is absolutely delicious.
“The first month or so I really missed cheese,” she tells Shape. “But then I discovered Daiya, which melts just like regular cheese. It certainly doesn’t taste exactly like real cheese, but it’s really, really good. When I order vegan pizza now, I am glad that the Daiya is so yummy but lacks that heavy feeling a lot of cheeses can give you. And honestly, there are so many good substitutes available now that I really don’t miss anything!”
“It’s all about being respectful to yourself because long-term you will feel and see the difference, and everyone else will see it too,” she says. “Know that you always deserve to feel good and that that can happen by taking good care of yourself.”
