Foodie Swellness: Simple Pleasures — Canadian Cheese

All You Need Is Cheese

From squeaky curds in poutine to gorgonzola in one of my favourite appetizers to make (artichoke proscuitto gratin) and fun, stretchy mozzarella, oh, cheese, I don’t know if there’s one I’ve met that I do not like!

So you can imagine how excited I was when I was asked by Dairy Farmers of Canada to be an ambassador of sorts — basically it involves eating much cheese for three months and Instagramming about it. Hello, sign me up! I think this is something I’ve been training for my whole life, haha!

Starting this month, I’ll be discovering all different types of Canadian cheese, made from 100% Canadian milk, and sharing on Instagram. You can follow me @healthandswellness (and the hashtags for the program are #simplepleasures #CDNcheese). And you can find all of the pics from the ambassadors thus far along with recipes and other cheese-y good stuff over at All You Need Is Cheese — my lil bio and mugshot is up there now if you wanna have a peek!

Travel Swellness: On the way to Wisconsin!

Door County, Wisconsin

Me: “I’m off to Wisconsin!”

Everyone: (After attempting to hide a puzzled look) “Oh…um, what’s in Wisconsin?”

And to be honest, I didn’t know at first (but have dug around a little online) but I’m very excited to find out. Yes, there’s cheese as it’s dairyland, but I understand there’s also cherry pie, and the area I’m going to (Door County) looks very picturesque, does it not? I’ll be enjoying the great outdoors (a good thing as I’m sure there will be several cheese calories to burn off…).

I look forward to sharing my adventures this week with you via Instagram and Twitter and, of course, through my articles once published when I get back!

Oh, and I’ll most definitely need to bring back some Wisconsin cheese curds so that I can do this with them (the photo and recipe is from Simple Comfort Food):

Cheese, please

“I’ve died and gone to cheese heaven!” I thought, standing in this room filled with shelves upon shelves of parmesan before me.
