Vegan Cream Cashews Cheddar Cheese

0-559459360-cashewcreamcheese

I recently had a couple of breakthroughs which inevitably resulted in vegan nachos, complete with cheese and yoghurt (or sour cream, if you will). The first breakthrough was the cream cashew cheddar cheese. I had been experimenting with nut cheeses ever since I became a vegan. It took a while of exploration but I think this cheddar was really, really tasty. The recipe is below.

 

I should note that this cream cheese does taste like cheddar but in form, it has more of a spread consistency. So you won’t get the runny, gooey melted cheese form.  But in my opinion, cheddar taste in a hummus like spread is sheer awesomeness.

The second breakthrough was the cashew yoghurt. I made it twice so far. This latest batch had a wonderful, sour cream like, firm and smooth texture. But I think it needs more sourness. So I need to work on its culture a little more before I am ready to publish a recipe for it. But keep tuned in, it is coming.

    Q: I have a question for you. Do you have or recommend an herbal cellulite cream that can be used as a body wraps to lose inches? There are so many products on the market and no one knows if they truly work or not. Is there an herbal body cream that I could use to shrink the fat cells in my stomach area? I have done a body detox and have been dieting for the past year. Hope you can help me to find the perfect herbal body cream that will help me.

    A:

    Cellulite doesn't come from a crème so it can't be healed with a crème. Cellulite is the result of diet and lifestyle so you have to make the necessary changes to your diet and lifestyle. Period! You're dealing with the Law of Cause and Effect here. The cause of cellulite is poor eating and lifestyle habits and the effect of poor dieting and lifestyle is disease, i.e. cellulite. I suggest you keep on detoxing! These wraps only work minimally, but it's cutting corners because even after having them performed you are still toxic inside - a walking time bomb!

    Q: I just recently found out that the face cream I have been using for 1 year has a horrible carcinogen in it called hydroquinone. I have been putting it on my face twice a day for over a year. Of course I had no idea this ingredient was a carcinogen, apparently a very serious one, until recently. I am not so worried for myself but concerned for my children who through cuddling and kissing were exposed to this substance as much as I was. What could I possibly do to get this horrible chemical out of their system and reverse it's damage. Also, my 7-year-old son had a CT scan of his head and I am worried about the radiation, can you recommend anything for that.

    A:

    Beloved, I would highly suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX and have the children perform the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . A good cleanse will help you out!

    Q: I just ordered the FULL BODY DETOX and I know there's a dietary regimen that I will have to follow. I was wondering if you would approve of a protein shake that consist of (raw hemp protein powder, raw almond butter, sea salt, flax seed, 100% young coconut water & meat inside the coconut, raw carob powder,) (optional soy or rice milk or soy or rice cream)

    A:

    Doesn't sound like it will mess up your FULL BODY DETOX. Go for it! But leave out the rice/soy cream! The rice milk is okay (but it is processed/cooked)!

    Q: After I had my baby over a year ago I've had a constant discharge. There is no foul order just thin white. I've been to the Doc four times she says I had Bacteria Vaginosis and treated it with gel. Its back! Can I do a cleanse to get rid of this or change my diet. I'm vegetarian but I occasionally have pizza with cheese. Help!

    A:

    There is help for you. I would highly recommend that you perform our Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse. Using a gel is only masking the problem. You need to address the root of the problem, and herbs can successfully attack the root of the problem.

    Q: During my phone consultation, I inquired about shaving creams other than the magic shave that I had been using for years. I tried the Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap as well as the Alba shaving cream. I have tried them both, and I use the hydrogen peroxide after I shave. But after a couple of days of smooth butter skin, my face becomes slightly irritated and small bumps form around the area where a goatee would grow. I know that I have some skin issues as of late, but don't know what. I even put a good amount of the OZ OIL on my face after I use the hydrogen peroxide. Should I not expect any constant smooth shaves until I go through the FULL BODY DETOX (FBD)?

    A:

    Whether you know it not but you answered your own question and correctly so. Yes, give the FULL BODY DETOX a try!

    Q: My father (age 56 who's between healthy and sick. jogs every morning, but doesn't eat healthy) has pain traveling from knee, back to shoulder, I, myself am very health conscious! but I can't put my finger on this one! His (history) no high blood pressure, non-diabetic, no history of heart attics, stroke etc... but loves to eat sweets.. cakes, cookies, milk, ice cream, etc....I believe this could be a combination of many things, like yeast build up, gas, arteries clogged. Can you help me?

    A:

    The best way to find out is have your father (or someone on his behalf) to schedule a health consultation so we can get at the root of the problem. While there could be a host of things causing the problem on the physical level, I'm more interested at getting at the emotional root of the problems. Product-wise, I would have your father start with the FULL BODY DETOX.

Is there anything that you know of that might help me to get rid of them. Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Truthfully, thank you very much.

    Q: My questions to you is how to I get rid of this keloid on the back of head thats been there for years. I?ve been told that surgical procedures would only make it come back, perhaps worse than what it is now. I?ve attempted an injection of steroid directly into the keloid and subsequent application of a topical cream, that resulted minimal results; but that was years ago and I haven?t done anything since. What do you suggest I do?

    A:

    Rub Oxy-Oil on the keloid every morning. This product is great to help heal skin conditions.

    Q: I have recently made the transformation to becoming a complete vegan. How can I determine what foods are for vegans?

    A:

    Simple question to the self that you can always ask now as a vegan, "Is this product derived from an animal?", and you'll never go wrong as a vegan. Two good questions, to help you make your own decisions as a conscious consumer and vegan: Is it nautral (from the Earth/plant)? Is it from animal? Always ask yourself these 2 questions when in doubt!

    Q: I've come to your website many times in the past few days and I would like to start ordering some products to begin detoxing my body and to rid my system of the herpes simplex virus and any other std that may be lingering within. I was diagnosed with this virus on 12/5, but since then I have been given amoxicillin by the doctor. After doing some research, I bought some Olive Leaf Extract, L-Lysine and Echinacea with goldenseal. I feel a lot better, especially since I began to stop eating certain foods, like cheese, pork, peanuts and chocolate. I've also been maintaining a positive attitude and believing that I will be free of this virus. I am extremely interested in starting a cleansing ritual beginning at the end of the month, but at current, I would just like to begin with a supplement you would recommend to cleanse my blood, my genital and vaginal area. Your recommendations will be deeply appreciated.

    A:

    If I had to recommend one product before your Anti-Viral Kit for you, it would be Dherbs STD-RID formula.

    Q: I'm on my 9th day of the FULL BODY DETOX which I am performing to heal from genital herpes. I am also am suffering from a yeast infection at the moment. I know that under your â€CANDIDA ALBICANS: YEAST INFECTION†article you suggested to do the full body detox. My question is will performing only the full body detox kit wipe away the yeast infection or do I HAVE TO TAKE EXTRA HERBS ON THE SIDE TO TAKE OF THAT problem including the genital herpes problem? During the FULL BODY DETOX you said lemon juice and sea salt for salad dressings but by any chance is regular dressing such as Italian, ranch or blue cheese or even hot sauce ok to eat the salads with? Are we able to eat crouton with our salads while performing the FULL BODY DETOX and anti-viral?

    A:

    After the FULL BODY DETOX, please perform the 10-DAY SUPREME CANDIDA CLEANSE. No commercial brand salad dressings (unless you use Anne's, Follow Your Heart, etc. available from Whole Foods Market). No croutons. Please read the article â€WHAT IS RAW FOODS†because if you know what raw foods are, many questions will automatically be answered on your own (not that it's a problem, simply for your edification).

    Q: I am interested in starting the Full Body Detox program. At this time, I would like to know which program is best for me. At current, I have started removing things from my diet as of 2 weeks ago (pork, chicken, red meat, I'm trying with the fish but it's hard!) I am not eating cheese but I still eat yogurt and every now and then I will eat a boiled egg (egg whites). I have removed soda from my diet, no coffee, I drink herbal or green tea, pomegranate juice or orange juice and I drink filtered water (I have a countertop filter that I change every 6 months and the Brita pitcher that I change every 2 months). Along with the supplement, is there an eating plan that you can suggest for me? I am eating more fruits and vegetables, but I would welcome suggestions on certain foods that I can eat while I begin my cleansing.

    A:

    The Full Body Detox kit comes with a prescribed dietary plan and notifies a person what they can and cannot eat during the detox.

    Q: Good Morning, hope all is well. My 11 yr. old son has a serious problem! The skin between his toes on both feet are peeling, and he has sores. The rest of his feet look fine. Also, on his arms & legs he has black spots. As if he had a mosquito bite, and scratched it. But that's not the case. What is this? I've tried tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar, and a cream from our local herb store for his feet. To this day nothing has helped. I don't give him meds from our so-called doctors. However, I am considering taking him to get a diagnosis. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanking you in advance and have a wonderful day!

    A:

    Please read the article on our site entitled "Skin Disorder = Blood Disorder" as your son is dealing with a blood disorder. Let his feet breathe which can be done by allowing him to wear sandals, or open air shoes. Allow him to soak his feet in warm water with about half a cup of sea salt, and 1 ounce of hydrogen peroxide (for about 30 minutes). After the soak, rub his feet down and in-between his toes with our Healing Skin Oil. Perform daily! Consider having the child completing the Children's Liquid Cleanse.

    Q: I read your website on the Michael Baisden's forum and I have been looking with much excitement at your products! I know you don't have time to recommend products to everyone, but if you could recommend something for my 3 year old son, it would be greatly appreciated. In the last year he has gotten the ringworm twice since starting daycare. Once in the head and the second time on the forehead. I've used over the counter cream the second time which made it go away for a short time. And now a month later he is developing a rash, it looks like small pimples, not the ringworm, but I'm thinking its ringworm because its in the same spot. If you could recommend some herbs for him to get rid of this ringworm once and for all, I will purchase it immediately. Just for your info, he doesn't eat meat except at school and absolutely no pork. Thanks in advance

    A:

    Please rub Dherbs OZ OIL on his body parts with ringworm.

    Q: I don't know if you remember or know, but there was a Vegan Couple that had a newborn baby, and the baby had died from what seemed to be a lack a of nutrients because the couple fed the baby a vegan diet. If you remember this, what do you think went wrong.

    A:

    The couple was from Atlanta! What went wrong is that while they were well-intentioned, they were ignorant, ignorant to true nutrition. They fed the baby soy milk, and soy milk does not contain nutrition. They didn't supplement the soy milk with nutrition which they could have done with herbs such as alfalfa, Irish Moss, Iceland Moss, etc.
