Eating the Buddhadharma: On Mindfulness, Nutritional Racism, and Food Justice.


I love it. My body does not.

I often talk about the fact that I really can’t see myself giving it up. But the fact is 90% of Black people are lactose intolerant. I am a part of the 90%.

I really need to let cheese go, it hurts my body so much. At the same time I can’t really imagine a life without it. what’s really funny is I’ve given up all other dairy items. I rarely eat ice cream and I only use Almond milk. I just can’t shake the cheese.

Are there any vegetarians or vegans that can recommend good cheese substitutes and where to buy them?

I’d prefer to hear from people who have eaten dairy based cheese in their lifetime and can give comparable suggestions.
