I have been considering trying some new types of cheese. I normally like cheddar (mild is okay, medium is my favorite, and sharp is okay), mozzarella, Parmesan, and American slice cheese. I do not like blue cheeses or goats cheeses.

 

Any suggestions for me?

Do you like ricotta? I make my own. Easy peasy. Delicious in stuffed pastas, lasagne, etc. Have you tried applewood smoked cheddar? Swiss? Gouda? Emmenthal? Edam? Caerphilly from Wales is lovely. Wensleydale is awesome.

As you like mild, you may like havarti, Monterey Jack and English cheddar (much nicer than American IMHO). Provolone is a very mild melting cheese. If you have not tried true mozzarella, it will be a revelation. Buffalo milk mozzarella is hard to find as the real stuff is only made in one region in Italy but some specialty cheese shops have it. Have you had feta?

I also love romano, pecorino, Humboldt fog, truffle cheese, etc. My cheese loves list is verrrrry long.

I own several books on cheeses including encyclopedias!

Love2travel and I are both big cheese lovers and I also enjoy a wide variety of them, but since it seems you prefer more mild cheeses,

maybe you could try some crumbled feta sprinkled on your salad. (and because you do not like goat's milk, make sure you select a cow's milk feta). I make a brown rice tortilla wrap with feta, diced cukes, marinated red peppers, red onion, kalamata olives and a dash of balsamic vinegar for lunch. Yum.  throw some diced chicken in there, if you like.

 

I know you're a college student and have a budget, so  some cheeses may be too pricey right now. Keeping that in mind, I'll suggest a splurge on one of these sometime:

 

A chunk of smoked gouda with apple slices or sesame crackers is really delicious.

 

Have you tried a melted brie? spread it on crackers and sprinkle with chopped almonds. Or, get a small jar of fig jam, spread the jam on the cracker, then spread on some brie. Very yum. 

 

I agree with the suggestion of trying some fresh mozzarella.  Get yourself a ball of it (it will be packed in water) slice it thin, add a slice of tomato and sprinkle with some basil, and a dash of balsamic vinegar and a slice of bread and you've got lunch.

Was just in the Osceola cheese factory store! Those people will put most anything in cheese and then smoke it! We got a cheese with blueberries in it, a smoked Swiss, a ghost pepper cheese and something else got snuck in there I didn't see. Ghost pepper is supposed to be the hottest pepper around.

Gouda.

I personally like a Honey Goat Gouda that Trader Joe's has here in Washington, but there are a lot of varieties of Gouda.  It's a pretty smooth cheese, not too far from a more mild cheddar.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam,  I second everything that Cyclinglady has told you, but just to let you know that I be me intolerant to dairy before my diagnosis for coeliac disease. The 2npositive tests, were they both blood tests or one blood test and one endoscopy? If you are waiting to see them in the Endocsopy department, I think they will want to do one if you haven't had one already and in order to do this and get the correct result, you must eat gluten for at least 6 weeks before you can have the test done, because it is the gluten that causes the auto-immune result.  I too have a thyroid disorder, which was diagnosed long before I had been diagnosed with coeliacs disease. Also a couple of years after diagnosis I became intolerant to soya and xanthan gum and E464 (hydroxypropl methyl cellulose) which is quite often found in gluten free baking produce, including bread. A food diary is a good start, which has also been suggested, but don't jump the gun if you haven't had an endoscopy with biopsies yet. It is still possible to carry on with gluten free and dairy free diet if you are vegetarian, but it makes it a little harder and don't forget dairy free milk is usually fortified with vitamins and minerals.
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      You might have a corn intolerance or reacting to something else like gums or preservatives.   Just something to consider.  
    • Blood results - odd
      The OP's hemoglobin levels are below range indicating anemia.  Her ferrtin levels (iron storage) is very low.  Like you, my body processes iron just fine.  It was absorbing it that was my issue due to celiac disease.   This explains it better. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/anemia/symptoms-causes/dxc-20183157 Excellent recommendation regarding the Vitamin D.  Other vitamins and minerals should be checked too.  What was odd, and perhaps you can clarify since you are in GB, can you not purchase iron supplements in a drugstore like Boots?    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Fat.  Seriously.  It is what keeps you satiated and does NOT raise blood sugar.  I have been on a Low Carb, High Fat diet for 2-1/2 years.  I eat to my "meter".  I did a lot of testing the first month to see which foods raise my blood glucose levels (no surprise, everyone is different).  Buy a cheap meter and strips at Walmart and test it yourself.   I eat protein in normal amounts (too much and the blood can convert it to glucose), veggies, nuts, dairy, and some fruit.  I do cheat on this diet, but NEVER on the gluten-free diet.  My blood sugar has been close to normal ever since.   Butter melted on my veggies.  Heavy cream.  Avocados, olive oil, meat drippings, bacon.    Yum!   Finally, the American Diabetic Association is recommending this diet for some people.  Why not for all?  They thinks it is too hard to maintain it (they should try maintaining a gluten-free diet!) and to be honest, there is not a one size fits all for diabetics just like celiac disease (we all have our various tolerances beside the need to be gluten-free).   My GP disapproved at first.  Now, he says to keep doing what I am doing.  My cholesterol levels are terrific!  (Normal compared to being super low before I was diagnosed).   I started this LCHF diet because I know that I want to avoid medications for diabetes (insulin excluded).    My gut just can not take it.   I have been weaning my family off all the excess sugar that is so prominent in the Standard American..British..you name it .... diet.  I felt best when I went on this diet after being gluten-free for a year.   So, do your research.  Do what is best for you -- not for the herd!    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi cristiana, The paleo diet and the ketogenic diet would probably be helpful to read up on.  Snack on protein, not sugar and carbs.  You should have protein with every meal.  Protein reduces the meal total glycemic index and lengthens the time before you feel hungry again.   Sugar and carbs shorten the time to feeling hungry again. Or you could just ignore the whole thing and eat lots of sugary foods and carbs like my brother does.  And go half blind and have joint pain and nerve pain.  Those sugary snacks are a poor trade for your health.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
