Plant-based Dairy with Miyoko Schinner

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
Plant-based eating is here to stay.

Most of us have heard about the health benefits and the environmental benefits of going plant based thanks to documentaries like “The Game Changers” and “What the Health.” 

While eating plant-based sounds great on paper, a lot of us wonder how you can possibly replace the unique taste of dairy products like butter and cheese. So, is dairy really the final frontier for plant-based eating? Miyoko Schinner thinks it is.

Miyoko is the founder of Miyoko’s Creamery, a company that makes incredibly delicious vegan, plant-based cheeses and butters. In this episode, she’s sharing her journey as a plant-based entrepreneur, dishing out advice for how to eat more plants, and more! This is a conversation that vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores alike will get something out of. 

“When you go vegan, you’re forced to think outside the box.”

    Thank you for this inspiring podcast. I purchase vegan cheese products from this company. Kudos for getting rid of the natural flavorings.

    It’s also true that dairy is the biggest hurdle to becoming vegan eater.
