This sounds very good but I could not find vegan cheese. Where do you buy it and does it not contain potassium and phosphorus

    Hello Cathy – you can generally find vegan cheeses in health food stores or in the alternative dairy section of your local grocer. There are many different name brands, some of which have no potassium or phosphorus, but you need to read the nutritional label to make sure because some can contain some potassium. You also need to check the sodium content as it can also be quite high in some varieties.
