Since I started reading healthy living blogs, I’ve been exposed to all kinds of different foods and eating styles that I’d never known about before. (And I’ve tried a lot of foods I’ve read about on blogs!)
I’ll try different foods, but right now, how I’m eating mostly works for me. I generally eat almost anything but am trying to go light on fried food, wheat and dairy to see if it helps my stomach.
There’s one problem with that.
I LOVE CHEESE.
Like, so much so that I joined French club in high school because my friend told me they did cheese tastings. DONE. This was obviously the club for me.
But I don’t think my stomach loves cheese. (Jerk.) I knew vegan and other dairy-free cheese alternatives existed, but I didn’t want to try them. They wouldn’t be as good as the real thing.
But for some reason, I decided to try vegan cheese last night.
(Um, technically it’s a “cheese product alternative.”)
I was having my friend Eileen over for tacos/fajitas, and I didn’t want to buy a bag of cheese I wouldn’t use again, so I decided to try this cheese. I was going to trick her and not tell her it was vegan, but at the last minute I told her and she didn’t seem too weirded out.
Maybe it was the wine.
Edited to add: The cheese wasn’t bad! It was in such a small quantity, though, that I wasn’t sure, so I tried it after dinner melted on a tortilla chip and it passed that all-important test.
