How to eat with a beginner’s mind

nacho mom's!
Shoshin is a concept in Zen Buddhism meaning Beginner's Mind. "It refers to having an attitude of openness, eagerness, and lack of preconceptions when studying a subject, even when studying at an advanced level, just as a beginner in that subject would."

One of the reasons going vegan for the first time feels so good is because it gives you a beginner's mind about food. Everything is new. Sure, you've had the perfect BBQ, the perfect pizza, and the perfect dessert before, but what about the perfect vegan BBQ? Finding good vegan BBQ is like discovering the pleasure of food for the first time all over again.

So it is with great excitement that I announce the invention of the perfect vegan queso! Nacho Mom's has concocted a cheezy treat that is an exquisite complement to SO MANY dishes! We've been putting it on tacos, pasta (mac & cheeze!), potatoes, English muffins with salsa, chips, and bean burgers. It's delicious warmed up or straight out of the fridge. And ONLY 160 CALORIES in the whole jar! The Fire Roasted version is completely allergen free and the best part is that they are based in beautiful AUSTIN!

Check out Nacho Mom's site for a complete list of where to buy or say hi on Twitter. In Austin I've been getting my fix at Whole Foods (in the snack chip aisle!) and Wheatsville (by the mustards).

    Hmmmmm… I wonder if I can get this anywhere in Vancouver. I want to try it!

    I’ll look for this the next time I visit Karmavore (local vegan store), I need to try Daiya cheddar as well.

    I see deliciousness in my future.

    I saw someone from Saskatchewan buy it from here! http://store.veganessentials.com/nacho-moms-ultimate-vegan-queso-p3126.aspx

    Daiya cheddar is also yummy! But this DEFINITELY makes a better mac n cheeze ^_^

    This is a great way to look at it. I like it-b/c I have never thought of it before! Thanks!

    Glad you liked it Liz! It makes me excited about being vegan to think of it like this.
