I got some really encouraging and to me, exciting news! Had gotten a visit from friends not long ago and the subject of food came up (specifically chesse for pizza), and my husband brought out the block chesse and started shredding it. Of course his friend asked why we do this instead of the easy bagged cheese. That got us all talking about food and reading labels. We told our visitors we can't even attempt to eat bagged pre shredded cheese anymore and talked about reading the labels and showed some labels of different foods. The response was, well, I don't know how to explain it but disbelief maybe? My husband proceeded to explain about what is in the other "cheese" and I had a grin from ear to ear. In a way it was like we were giving a mini session regarding food which felt awesome! My husband even said if you change just one thing, start with cheese. Don't buy the wrapped processed slices or the bagged stuff, buy a block of cheese and a shredder and give it a whirl. I mean, what a small but HUGE step for a family to take. Well, they returned home and did buy block cheese and a shredder. While my husband was back home in town about a month or so later, he visited his friend and guess what?!?!?! They no longer buy bagged cheese! His friend read the labels and when he got to the mold inhibitor part of the ingredients, that pretty much did it for him. They now buy block cheese and shred their own! This is exciting for me because it shows that just even a small bit of education on food can make a difference. The process is baby steps, as I could not expect someone to go "cold turkey" on all food. But this made me so happy to know that what I call "My Easy Cheesy Experiment" works! Again, start small and take on "My Easy Cheesy Experiment" and see what results from that one change! Make sure to read the labels too!! That is such a critical part when making these type of lifestyle changes!! If you decide to take on "My Easy Cheesy Experiment", I would LOVE to hear your experience!! Til later!
