To think cheese is a staple food?

Just trying to figure out what on earth to have for tea. I realise nearly every item in my fridge and freezer (that I want to eat right now) is cheese based.

- cheese nacho Mexican things
- cheese pizza
- cheese quiche
-cheesey potatoes
- cheese garlic bread
-cheese and garlic dip
-cheddar
Followed by...-cheesecake!!!

Am supposed to be starting diet on mon. Surely the reasonable thing is to eat them and get them gone right?? Am I alone in my cheese based fridge?

Go for a low carb diet.... cheese is encouraged!!

Yes, I agree with Not, I do low carb and had cream cheese stuffed giant mushrooms (2) librally sprinkled with Manchego cheese (lush) and baked, crispy bacon on the side, wilted spinach. Mmmmm smile.

I agree also. There have been studies showing people are healthier who eat cheese. Go for it!

Any diet that does not involve cheese is not worth the effort.

Red wine goes really well with cheeeese!

Cheeseyness is next to Godliness.

Lulabell1979 Sat 01-Apr-17 20:43:30

Oh the cheesy nacho things were amazeballs!

Low carb hi cheese... hmmm if only I didn't also have a bread issue!

A Low carb diet Ian good for cheese lovers, but you have to think of new, non carby things to balance your cheese on. No bread, crackers, jacket potatoes, pizza. Roasted cauliflower just doesn't cut it!

I love cheese. My new favourite lunch is crusty tiger loaf doorsteps, slathered in butter with generous slices of Jarlsberg on top <drool> DH would be shocked if he knew how many times I have eaten that over the past week blushgrin

Saucyjack grin

I am low carb and just eat hunks of mature cheddar as snacks. Cheesetastic!

LovelyBath77 Sat 01-Apr-17 21:10:01

I eat slices of cheese with a slice of kerrygold butter.

We regularly reflect on how many of our meals contain cheese, lasagne, enchiladas, homemade pizzas (well all pizza but we usually do homemade through the week), etc etc. Even when we do susupposedly healthier stuff like turkey burgers and salad DH sticks cheese on top of the burgers! We reflect, but never enough to do anything about it!

I'm low carbing at the moment, currently eating cheese dipped in guacamole . Food of the gods!

JamesDelaneysHat Sat 01-Apr-17 21:26:56

Now i want cheese and there's only a hard bit of cheddar in the fridge.

I used to agree - ate tonnes of it with everything. I've recently gone vegan, and do you know what? I don't miss it. It was an addiction but I'm beating it.

UnicornButtplug Sat 01-Apr-17 21:40:32

Mmmmmmm cheese shock I love it so much

Lovely "I eat slices of cheese with a slice of kerrygold butter."

I do this! grin <who needs bread>

Lulabell1979 Sat 01-Apr-17 22:51:30

Need to try the kerrygold...

highinthesky Sat 01-Apr-17 22:53:51

I've had to cut out cheese lately. I subbed dairy for carbs and it sent my cholesterol levels rocketing.

Meekonsandwich Sat 01-Apr-17 22:53:55

Ewwwww you're totally unreasonable.

I hate cheese.

It's texture, it's smell, its taste, where it comes from, just noooooo.

cafetea Sat 01-Apr-17 22:56:33

it's the perfect snack

Plunkette Sat 01-Apr-17 23:00:08

If I lived alone there would never ever be cheese in my fridge. I don't dislike it I'm just not interested.

However DH and the DC are cheese lovers.
