Miyoko is a chef, cookbook author, animal sanctuary founder and owner of dairy-free cheese brand Miyoko’s Creamery. She is a leading advocate for the right of vegan food products to use “traditional” meat and dairy terms on their labels. Miyoko is the author of “The Now and Zen Epicure” and “The Homemade Vegan Pantry”.
Miyoko is vegan and has said: “We need to move all of humanity to recognize animals as sentient beings that have their own lives, and their own right to having their own lives…” I’m not sure whether she has a naturalistic worldview but her ethics don’t seem to be grounded in the supernatural. She has said: “We need to create a culture that’s based on compassion and love. Those are the only things that matter.”
