I must say I’m a bit shocked that a “cheese I.V.” doesn’t exist.
With that said, if someone invents it, let this be the proof that that idea started RIGHT here in this Fitlife article.
Cheese is OH SO good – why wouldn’t you want in constantly flowing into your body?
Oh! I know why… because regular dairy cheese is uber inflammatory for your body.
I hate to break it to you, cheese lovers, but those tasty morsels aren’t so health friendly.
I love cheese too. I get it.
But – let’s dry our tears NOW because there is a creamy and delicious VEGAN alternative that will definitely satisfy your “cheesy tooth.”
Behold… the tastiness of… CREAMY CASHEW CHEESE SAUCE!
