Our story

Fauxmage is a husband and wife team, David & Brooke Young, in Seattle, WA. We spent a decade in the fitness industry and saw that many people were struggling with their weight and health despite regular exercise. Convinced diet was the missing (and most important!) piece, we began researching the benefits of plant-based nutrition. Longtime vegetarians, after reading the China Study and other books it became very clear that all animal products had to go for optimal health and wellness.

As any vegan will tell you, giving up cheese is the hardest part of going plant-based. Unable to find healthy vegan cheeses on the market, we began experimenting with our own. And voila! Fauxmage was born.

We are amazingly thankful to be able to work together every day, and proud to provide a delicious option that doesn’t harm animals or the planet. It is our mission in this life to reduce animal suffering as much as we can, to not add to the destruction of the planet, and to practice ahimsa in all of our thoughts and deeds.

Thank you to the following people and organizations

By T. Colin Campbell, PhD

Even today, as trendy diets and a weight-loss frenzy sweep the nation, two-thirds of adults are still obese and children are being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, typically an “adult” disease, at an alarming rate. If we’re obsessed with being thin more so than ever before, why are Americans stricken with heart disease as much as we were 30 years ago?

by John McDougall, MD

From Atkins to Dukan, fear of the almighty carb has taken over the diet industry for the past few decades―even the mere mention of a starch-heavy food is enough to trigger an avalanche of shame and longing. But the truth is, carbs are not the enemy. John A. McDougall, MD, and his kitchen-savvy wife, Mary, prove that a starch-rich diet can actually help readers lose weight, prevent a variety of ills, and even cure common diseases. By fueling the body primarily with carbohydrates rather than proteins and fats, readers will feel satisfied, boost energy, and look and feel their best.
