It’s about balance . . .

Parmesan cheese is the best.  I am talking about the REAL, fresh, comes in a block and looks like it has been sitting out in the sun, parmesan cheese! Not only does the cheese add a slight salty and nutty flavour to your meal, but it also is packed with protein. Protein is something we all need to make sure we are getting enough of at each meal. Just 50 grams of Parmesan cheese has approximately 20 grams of protein! Now that is a protein power house not to be messed with. Enjoy!
