National Cheese Lover’s Day – Cheddar Crisps


Cheddar Crisps for National Cheese Lover’s Day!

I love cheese! Any kind of cheese – and there are so many kinds! There are more than 1,400 varieties. Cheese has been found as far back in history as 5,500 B.C.!

However, that leads to a slippery slope back into habits that are good for no-one. Here’s how to ensure your move doesn’t affect your eating habits too badly.
