Hello:

Ewww! I know that I've never heard mention of using cow
stomach juices to make cheese. There is a historical village
not far from where we live and they make cheese, wool, bread,
etc. like they used to in the olden days, while you're watching.
Some farmers also make their own cheese.

Cheese is suitable for vegetarians since there are no meat products
in it. I'm not sure how cheese is made in other countries but nowadays
this is usually how it is made in North America.

Default rennet

hello terrie,sorry `bout that,lol,yea i thought rennet was used for cheese making,thats why vegetarians couldn`t eat it,i`m just wondering what they use now instead.I plan to have a look around for some cheese that is made the old fashioned way,as i could not live happily without cheese.
I was smiling to myself today,about the positive effect diabetes had on me[i lost 3 stone in about 3 week just before christmas without trying].It was my eyesight starting to act up that finnaly prompted me to go to the doctor.Today someone i hadn`t seen for 6 month remarked that i looked 20 year younger,lol,and the glasses i bought,i don`t need them anymore.I still need a magnifiying glass to read the labels on food packets tho`.
thanks for reply.Curedit

thanks for the link terrie,bloody hell i thought as much,genetically modified rennet.Ah well,it will be fun to find an outlet that makes cheese the old fashioned way.I wish there was a law that made food labels state exactly what was in the product.
Thanks again for saving me from another substance i do not want in my body.

Hey There:

LOL! Cheese has turned out to be a Yukky subject, in this case.
But as they say, if you eat everything in moderation, it won't kill
you. Okay, I made up the last half of that sentence but their last
half says moderation of most foods are Good for you or something
similar. I agree. I eat small portions of cheese, as I mentioned that
I do with most foods. Everyone needs calcium of some sort.

Good that you have dropped some weight and are "looking younger".
But please do not stop eating altogether...or you will vanish. j/k

I wish that there was a law against companies putting "poisons" in
our food and other products. Our Govnt's. have certainly been a
letdown for some years allowing this onto their People. It seems
they ask the companies to mostly "voluntarily" remove the dangerous
substances from foods and other products or to state on the label
that it is in the product. What's that all about? Who's in charge?

I remember about a year or so ago(don't quote me on the Govnt.
or country), I think it was the Denmark or Norway's Govnt. that was
amazed that our Governt's did it that way.

They said they don't tell the company to put the "poison" on the
label, they tell the company to remove the "poison" from the product.
That's the right thing to do. Good for them. Anyways, enough about
that.

Talking Cheese

Unfortueate for me, I adore cheese of any kind (but then I have not seen how it's made) Cheese is a carb and so have to count it. As seems that I see carbs in almost anything and it's in everything that I like. Milk is another carb rich thing. I guess you would be thinking what my colesterol will be like.

Hey Peter: Great avatar that you have there. How did you get interested in ballet?? Have you ever danced in the ballet?


Anyways, cheese(like medium cheddar) doesn't have too many carbs but the calories add up. As long as you don't eat too much because you're right. It does raise your cholesterol. Processed cheeses have a bit more carbs.

I love cheese but I don't eat too much of it since I like my yogurt or my occasional scoop of black cherry ice cream and glass of milk, of course.

I have been at the barre stretching and that water bottle and the sweat but have never had the chance to see the stage and I don't miss those en pointe shoes.

Yeah, OK so I would have to cut the cheese out and be kind to my body, But I love cheese. I wonder what do goat cheese has any better effect on cholesterol??
Like the soft Bree as that is full fat cheese as that will have a huge effect on cholesterol but I don't have that too often.

I am Begin to think that animal products are not good for us anymore. I am not a big fan of yogurt and I have not used butter much either. Milk I use every day with my porridge and the cold chocolate drink. I need a craving away from cheese but dammit I love it too much.

Hey, that’s Neat Peter. I didn’t get anywhere as close even as that to ballet. Ha! I can imagine about the shoes.

You wouldn’t have to cut all cheese out but certainly half of it, if you eat a lot plus other dairy products. Try buying low-fat cheeses and other dairy. That would help. I’ve never looked up goat cheese since it doesn’t appeal to me. I imagine it would have close To the same amount of cholesterol. Good idea though Peter. I’ll check into that….unless someone else knows??

Ugh! Poor you…you’re like my Husband. He loves his cheese(he used to love his donuts and junk food with the Guys and sometimes at home}. He became unhealthy so I got him to cut most of the junk food out so his tests come back much better but he still has to lose more weight which is difficult once you get up there. Stopping the junk food was hard also but now he understands the concept so he stays away from it mostly.

I've always made his meals of course, except now on Saturday supper meal(I’ve proclaimed that as, My meal off Day),usually. He can eat/order whatever he wants. Unless he’s working hard all day or in the garage. Then of course, I’ll feed him.

At least you are eating your oatmeal Peter, that is one Good way of cutting down your cholesterol. Steel-cut is the Best for that. You are probably doing more, like exercising which is a Big help in cutting down cholesterol also.

Ho good, I love porridge. With honey & chocolate powder that makes the chocolate milk drink. As for exersise and that's what needs to be looked at.
Now don't tell me that you don't like chocolate.
