First of all, let me state that I love cheese. I used to always include extra cheese in any recipe that called for the wonderful dairy product. If the recipe suggested 1/2 cup of cheese, I went for 3/4 or 1 cup! When I first began My Healthy Eating Challenge, I was sure I would miss the quantity of cheese I was used to having, but that has not been the case. In fact, I realize now that cheese actually covers up the taste of the food too much, so when I do have cheese (usually just a couple times a week--if that--and usually a white imported cheese now, rather than orangey cheddar) I prefer a very small amount as to enhance the flavor, rather than cover it up.
