Word Of The Day: Cheesetarian (Yup, It’s What You Think It Is!)

I was 12 when I first realized that I wanted to be a vegetarian. I didn’t think it was cool to dissect animals and bugs in class, and it seemed wrong to eat animals, too. I told my mom, and she was cool with it–even though she was pretty sure I’d just grow out this phase–but she refused to cook vegetarian meals just for me.

That’s how I became a cheesetarian–which is actually our word of the day! “What’s a cheesetarian?,” you ask . . . well, a cheesetarian is someone who practically lives on cheese alone. Cheese pizza. Cheesy toast. Cheese fries. String cheese. A big old hunk of brie just because it’s Monday. Yup. That’s what happened to me. My mom thought if she didn’t cook vegetarian meals for me that I’d eventually just start eating burgers again, but instead, I just resorted to eating the easiest (and tastiest) food of all–cheese!

Eventually, living on mozzarella sticks got kind of boring and I started muching a bigger variety of foods (much to my doctor’s relief!), but to this day the one thing you can count on me having in my fridge is a whole lot of cheese. Usually Manchego.

Are you a cheesetarian or do you know a cheesetarian? Do you love cheese as much as I do? Tell me in the comments!
