I think I've confessed my cheese addiction before but just in case I'll say it again…
I LOVE CHEESE!
One of my favorite snacks as a kid was to cut hunks from a block of cheddar, slice some good pepperoni and top a buttery cracker. It was a texture thing, a taste thing and, well, a mindless thing. Before I knew it I'd look down and the block would be gone!
Now I try to snack a little smarter and a lot more consciously.
Now my cheese and crackers looks like this…
I replaced the crackers with cucumber slices. I replaced the hunks of cheddar with creamy Laughing Cow. And I replaced the greasy pepperoni with sweet dried cranberries. I also make a plate ahead of time and have everything portioned out making it a lot less likely to look down and notice a whole wheel of Laughing cow is missing!
So I still get my creamy texture delivered on a crunchy bite but by removing the mindless thing, I now have no regrets enjoying one of my favorite snacks.
Here's the details…
- 1 wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss
- ½ of fresh cucumber sliced ~10 slices
- 10g of Dried Cranberries (~20)
Smear the cheese evenly on the cucumber slices
Top each with about 2 dried cranberries
Enjoy without feeling an ounce of guilt. 🙂
