Who art in my refrigerator, Hallowed be thy name.
Knowing me, you understand that I live by all states of cheese: Creamy, Crumbly, Soft, Hard, and Stinky to name a few. This faith in all forms of pasteurized dairy goodness also brings out the devil inside. My holidays can be summed up in the photos below. Consumed, demolished and enjoyed – every single bite and every single moment! No rind left untouched, and no regrets (well maybe some 😉 )
(Cheesboard of local cheeses of Quebec… Don’t mind if do!)
*NOTE THE CHEESES WERE CONSUMED BY MULTIPLE PEOPLE
Needless to say my body is going through a slow (even shaky) detox. So while I shake off the cravings for this fantastical source of protein, Vitamin D, Calcium enriched D-Food (yes, cheese is super T1D friendly!), before my eyes appears this article in the January issue of Women’s Health Magazine! “Big Cheeses” listing 7 salivating selections and their benefits!!!
Everything from calming pms symptoms (cheese you’re my best friend), serving as a great source of protein and amino acids, even cavity prevention! ( sure “I eat cheese for my dental health”…)!
Oh the sweet smell of JUSTIFICATION! So while curbing these cravings, my consumption of mass quantities of cheese were not in vain! However it is still good to be mindful and aware of how much you are um enjoying….Moderation (yes I said the M word) is key! In ensuring a healthy calcium intake during said detox, I am using my dear friend Greek Yogurt as a base for this antioxidant, protein filled snack!
