Delicious Vegan "Cream Cheese" Spread




By Jordan Miller;

We all know how hard it is to completely come off junk food when we are making the transition to more healthier food options. For many of us, processed foods were always part of the daily food regime. They provided our families with a simple alternative to preparing meals. Little did we know however, that these types of foods were taking their toll on our health. As we continuously awaken to this fact, we come to understand food more as a source that is whole, unadulterated, and completely void of processing or reconstitution. We rekindle the once lost desire for "healthy food" and redefine our perception of food as nature intended it to be.  It is both an enlightening an overwhelming experience to come to terms with this reality. As we make the step to eating  more whole foods, there are times where we "crave" certain "junk foods" that once inhabited our palate. In an effort to help with the transition, and to ease the cravings, it is our purpose to continue providing you with healthier food options. In this segment, we decided to share with you a great vegan alternative to herbed cream cheese spread. We hope you enjoy it!
