…for attempting to sabotage by healthy eating *shakes fist in their general direction* I went there to simply get some cheap salad greens and whole wheat couscous, and what do I find?
Cheese in a cup!
And not just any cheese in a cup, but VEGETARIAN cheese in a cup! Be still my beating heart.
As you may remember, I often lament about cheese maker’s inability to list the source of their rennet, and the apparent lack of vegetarian (and therefore having a better chance of being halal) cheese in a cup.
And there it was, right there on the shelf, vegetarian pub cheese in a cup. It mocked me as I attempted to lower my gaze and look desperately for something healthy to grab instead.
Alas, I have no willpower, and ended up buying the cheese in a cup. While it doesn’t hold a candle to the excellent processed cheese foodstuffs made by the University of Wisconsin, it wasn’t too bad. It was definitely lighter and fluffier. I spread just a smidgen on some multigrain wheat thins (ugh, crackers, now that’s a whole ‘nother post. How hard is it to find whole wheat crackers that don’t have a whole bunch of junk in them? Apparently darn near impossible), and I’m in heaven.
The best part? It’s not sabotaging my healthy eating. In the past when I’ve indulged in cheese in a cup, it’s been gone within 2 or 3 days. With the TJ processed cheese foodstuffs, we’ve only gone through 1/3 of the tub and I continue to lose weight. Alhamdulilah. Moderation is the key (duh), but it’s easier said than done.
