How to Eat Less Cheese

So maybe you saw a documentary and you want to eat less cheese, but you don't know how.

Because it's hard, it is everywhere. It's convenient to eat cheese in the U.S.

It's a lazy way the food industry makes everything taste better, and it gets you wanting more ($).

(See this post on why cheese is addicting)

It just takes a tiny bit of effort to swap this hormone disrupting, artery blocking product for something else.

And that's exactly what it is, a swap. The words "cutting out" is never a positive frame of mind to begin a diet change with, so try not to put that mental stress on yourself.

Instead, think of it as a curious adventure of exploring new dairy-free options.

If you want to begin, I address swaps for all of our favorite traditional cheesy foods here.
