Shredded cheese is good, any cheese is good. With anything. I'm trying to go vegan but I can't seem to be able to give up cheese...

(Chiara, I'm vegan and it does eventually get easier. ;) btw, just clicked through to your link. JANIS! Bobby McGee! Love!)

Oh good! I have absolutely no problem cutting any other dairy products and eggs but cheese... Besides my love for any and all cheese, the fact that cheese substitutes aren't really easy to find here (I'm in The Netherlands), plus they don't taste well, it's kinda hard.

Janis is awesome and so is Bobby!! The freedom line is one of my favorite song lyrics ever... You should check out my favorite Italian singer Gianna Nannini, she's a huge Janis fan and has been influenced by her and did an Italian cover of Bobby McGee. Some years ago, she played a tribute with Big Brother and Holding Company:

Chiara: Two words. Nutritional. Yeast. I don't think I could have given up cheese without it. But you really do stop missing it quite so much. I've been dairy-free for maybe 4 months, and while I miss cheese, I don't so much miss how I feel when I eat it.

Jamila, have you ever made any of those cashew cheeses? Any good?

Wealhtheow: Thanks for the tip!! I've been educating myself quite a lot since I've gone back to being vegetarian and considering to go vegan but I hadn't come across nutritional yeast yet. I'll definitely be looking into that! I have absolutely no problems missing milk so far, I like my soy and rice milk so that's no problem but *sighs* cheese...

Jamila: Yes, I'd be interested in hearing about the cashew cheese as well if you tried making those! I just found out about those the other day and I wanted to maybe try it out soon as well.

I have nothing to add here, I just love this conversation. Cashew cheese and Bobby McGee? YES.
