Oh cheese, what am I to do with you?
I love cheese. When I first switched to vegetarian I decided I was going to be lacto ovo. Meaning I eat dairy and eggs. I currently get most of my protein from eggs, usually eating at least 1 a day. But the farther I get into this life the more I think of giving up cheese as well. I don't get much in the way of benefits from it the way I currently eat. Every time I eat something at a restaurant with cheese on it I feel like its overly greasy and heavy. I also switched to coconut milk about 6 months ago... So, is my body just not liking cheese anymore? Do I really need to eat it? I'd still eat things that were made with dairy (hello buttermilk pancakes!). And I don't think I could ever fully give up goats cheese is many of its various forms. So maybe I should say, do I stop buying it? We almost always have cheese in the house for The Man to snack on, so, maybe I will just stop buying it for myself and see what happens.
