Rants, Rules & Recipes

An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RANT: Cheese and Chocolate



Maybe not together. But I want both, daily. I never want chocolate for breakfast. I always want it after lunch. And Dinner. And Dessert. But cheese I could have anytime, anywhere.

I once read how a talented, less-than-perfect-appearing actress lost weight by “breaking up with cheese”.  Poor thing.

For me, Chocolate is like a lover and Cheese is my friend.

To My Dear Friend, Cheese,

Could we ever part? I like you when you are cold, I love you when you are warm. I like you with wine, I like you atop a MacIntosh apple. I like you floating in a soup, I like you deep fried with sauce.  I like you melted over warm crispy bread.  You have many forms, and I have not found a version of you I don’t so enjoy.  Thank you for your comfort and nourishment.

Love Always,



Hey Chocolate,

It’s me. Last night was hot and delicious!

I can’t quit thinking about you.

You free for lunch? dinner?

Hope 2 C U soon?!

I want you,



We all have varying relationships with food.  Some are healthy, some are pathological. As with any relationship, knowledge, communication, balance and boundaries are key.

    Oh yeah, you said it, sister! I’d seriously eat nothing but white bread, chocolate, and cheese if I could get away with it. But I can’t, so I won’t. 🙂

      I Hear ya! The “Rants” are for me to explore food issues with which I struggle or that annoy me!

    I have given up cheese for a while (supporting my husband in a quest to get rid of microscopic colitis), but I don’t think I could give up chocolate. It is indeed like a lover, isn’t it?
