Cheese. It makes the world go round (at least a cheese-lover's world, that is). It's so delicious that you should be able to incorporate cheese into every meal of your day with no shame. And guess what? It's surprisingly easy to do. That's right, you can have your cheese and eat it too.
Cheese is one of the most versatile foods on the planet. It's so much more than just a slice of dairy on a sandwich. Its range of flavors is just as versatile as its uses. Sharp, sweet, sour, or spicy — you really can make just about anything. (And if you're in need of some new cheeses to try out, check out these seven cheeses that you've probably never heard of).
Provided below are some simple (yet tasty) ideas to get you started on your daily cheese-venture. Yes, I said daily. Yes, I also said cheese-venture. Things are about to get real cheesy. (Sorry, I can't help myself). An excellent source of calcium (and happiness), you're doing yourself a favor by indulging in the scrumptious goodness that is cheese.
But enough talk already, it's time to get to the goodies. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert are waiting for you — and you've been waiting for them. Get some menu inspiration, pick your pleasures, and start shredding.
Skip the cereal and fruit (or have it on the side) — because if you want to get cheesy during the early morning hours it's going to have to be on the savory side. Scrambled eggs? Sprinkle some cheese on top. Roasted potatoes? Ditto. How about a cheese danish? Donezo. If you're wanting something quick and easy, grab an everything bagel and slather on the cheesy goodness that is cream cheese. (Blueberry, vegetable, strawberry, pumpkin... whatever your heart desires).
While your first thought might be to cook yourself up a grilled cheese, there's actually so many more exciting ways to go when it comes to incorporating cheese into your lunch. If you want to keep things on the healthier side, cheese seems to be salad's best complement. Don't limit yourself in your cheeses. Think feta, blue, gorgonzola, and goat. Your options just became limitless. If you want something to warm your insides, potato cheese or broccoli cheese soup is undeniably delicious.
There's really only one protein that I don't think should be mixed with cheese on the regular, and that's fish (unless, of course, you're having a tuna melt). Beef, chicken, and pork, on the other hand, can only be made better with cheese. Cheeseburgers, chicken quesadillas, pork tacos, brisket sandwiches, parmesan chicken, Philly cheesesteaks, enchiladas of any sort — see what I mean? You don't really need help incorporating cheese into dinner.
Dessert may seem a little tricky at first, but it's really not. Obviously, you have your cheesecake option. However, if you're wanting to indulge in something a little healthier, a large plate of fruit with a side of cheese is a great option. It's also very European, so bonus points for that.
