Raw Organic Cheese?


After I bought these Organic Emmental Cheese slices from L'Ancetre, and 
was beginning to make a sandwich, did I notice the label says "From raw milk." 
Maybe it's because i'm used to pasteurized cheese, but  this is pretty cool!


I rarely eat cheese, mostly because I am picky about the quality of it. 
This stuff rocks, especially since it's already pre-sliced :)


Turkey and Cheese Sandwich on Gluten-Free Brown Rice Bread


Topped with sliced tomatoes, cucumber and black pepper


With a little yellow mustard :)


Quickly, I want to show you something interesting I found in last week's
 local newspaper. It's an article on the "Secret of Superb Muffins."


Everyone knows that I wrote here on my blog that the key to bakery-style 
muffins is to overflow the muffin tins with extra batter... this gives 
them that nice big muffin top. Even though many people already know this,
 I'd like to believe "Eric" has been reading my blog haha...


Either way, it's only reminding me that I seriously need to bake some muffins again!


I'll leave you to enjoy this free muffin recipe; 
I'm off to go teach a yoga class!

That's one epic sandwich! I love building mine so they are almost too big to bite out of too. ;)

You seem to have such a wide variety of organic food available in your area. I'm jealous!

And yes you should make muffins soon! And then send them to me. ;)

I have visions of you carrying a basket of prewrapped muffins with terrific "yoga friendly" names and ingredients and selling them (or just putting them by the door with a sign that says $1 and a basket...let that do the talking)....

Na-mmm-aste Muffins.
Shock your Chakra Muffins.
Svasana Savers -- like they will preserve that feeling of bliss after a class.

Just an idea.

I just made a Cranberry-Lemon Loaf that could totally be muffins :)

I LOVE cheese. Any type. That toasted bread looks so good - I haven't toasted bread in forever! Usually I just eat it without toasting...is that kind good?

I've wanted to try raw cheese or raw dairy in the past because of my sensitivity to dairy- I've heard that raw dairy is easier to digest and generally better for sensitive tummies. However, it is illegal in Ontario because of the fear of botulism! All dairy must be pasteurized. I have to go to Quebec or BC if I want to try some raw goat cheddar :)
Your muffins always come out so gorgeous- they really do look like they are from a bakery.

I have never tried organic cheese! looks awesome though! So does your turkey! It loks fresh cut from the deli just like I get mine! How is gluten free going? Not gonna lie...it looks like you have a major bread crisis! I ate that same kind before!

I'm definitely going to try your muffin method next time I bake muffins. I always go by the recipe and all muffin recipes that I've seen say "fill muffin tin 2/3rds full. I was always scared that what would happen if I filled it more! I loooooove bakery style- huge muffins. MMmmmmmmm Muffins!

Big questions mark: raw and organic! love it though. This should be a huge replacement for BLT (who wants bacon anyway). looks so good and fresh
