New Book from Neal Barnard MD -- Cheese Trap
The Cheese Trap is a fascinating tour though all the things you never knew about America’s favorite addiction -- and how to break free.
If you or someone you know has been looking to lose weight, tackle cholesterol, skin problems, headaches, joint pains, or respiratory troubles, or you just wanted to take an important step for the animals and the earth, this is the place to begin.
Some facts to know and share:
- The average American eats 60,000 calories’ worth of cheese every year.
- Two ounces of potato chips have 330 milligrams of sodium; two ounces of Velveeta have 800.
- Typical cheeses are 70% fat, most of which is saturated (“bad”) fat.
- Most cheese contains estrogens, because dairy cows are pregnant most of the year.
The Cheese Trap also tells the bizarre facts about how cheese is made, why it smells the way it does, and how it affects your brain to keep you coming back for more.
The recipe section, written by Dreena Burton, includes dairyless versions of all your favorites: Cream Cheese, Tofu Feta, Parmesan, Ricotta, Cheese balls, Fettuccine Alfredo, Spinach-Sweet Potato Lasagna, and endless others, including Divine Cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce.

The Nelsons just got back from a wonderful New York week. We ate at some great vegan restaurants like Candle 79, Blossom, and By Chloe.
We had some meetings on a special vegan project brewing.
And we experienced just about every kind of weather -- t-shirt weather, rain, eight inches of snow, and freezing rain -- all inside a week's time!
If you'd like to have a personal look at our recent romp around NYC, we've got just the video for you!
