Parma! Vegan Parmesan

Whether you and cow’s milk agree or not, this Parmesan substitute is a terrific treat.

Made from raw, organic walnuts, brewer’s yeast and Celtic sea salt, Parma! Vegan Parmesan from Eat in the Raw is a welcome change from the indigestible nature of most nondairy cheeses. It’s also a nutritional windfall. Walnuts are full of omega-3s — excellent for both vision and nerve health — and protein. Brewer’s yeast is a great source of hard-to-get B vitamins, which play an important role in helping your body manage stress. Celtic sea salt is rich in trace minerals like magnesium and iodine; the latter is essential for thyroid health and is largely unavailable to those who don’t eat fish. If you avoid eating animal products, this is a great supplement for some key nutrients. For everyone else, it’s a delicious, nutrient-dense alternative to the pasta lover’s favorite standby. Available at your local natural grocery; about $4.50 for 7 ounces. Visit for a store locator.
