Today’s my Momiversary! My first baby turns fifteen today. And in honor of him and the last decade and a half of refining fire motherhood, I’m hosting a bunch of giveaways on both Life as MOM and Good Cheap Eats. So, stay tuned and be sure to enter them all for your chance to win.

Over the last year or two, I’ve been researching food. I don’t think I really set out to “do research.” It just kind of fell in my path.

I read In Defense of Food, and then The Unhealthy Truth, and now most recently The Kitchen Counter Cooking School. All have had a huge influence on what I eat and what I serve my family.

And while I know that food research is often subject to change — eggs and cream used to be bad for you, but now many folks are saying they’re okay — the overwhelming feeling I get is that how I source our food matters.

What the cow eats matters. How the  seed is produced matters. And what chemicals go into our foods matter.

As a result, I’ve been slowly reworking the contents of my grocery cart. This looks a lot different than this. Slowly, but surely, I’ve been cleaning up our food. While we still buy some processed foods, that amount has dropped dramatically in the last two years or so. I’m cooking more from scratch, buying organics as possible, and using less refined sweeteners.

One of my other baby steps is to eliminate GMO’s from our diet. So, I was really pleased when Rumiano Cheese Company sent us some samples to try. Yum!

About Rumiano Cheese Company

Here are some of the facts about Rumiano Cheese Company:

  • is California’s oldest family-owned business dedicated to the manufacture and distribution of the highest quality cheese.
  • produces cheese made using the highest quality Kosher and Non-GMO ingredients. All of the milk is free of antibiotics, free of artificial hormones, and free of pesticides and herbicides.
  • produces the world’s first cheeses that are Verified Non-GMO through the Non-GMO Project, and currently the only cheeses to receive that certification.

Our family is a cheese and crackers crowd, so I had no shortage of taste testers when we snacked on the samples Rumiano sent us. Yum! I loved the pepper jack, one of my favorite varieties. And my children, previous haters of white cheddar, are now big time fans.

Why do kids think that cheddar needs to be orange?!

  1. Love cheese and crackers for a snack! We are currently focused on removing artificial colors (we have found they affect our son’s behavior). We’re taking baby steps towards healthier eating. Thanks for the opportunity to try something we might not otherwise know about!

  2. I love cheese and crackers… and fruit! we’ve been buying more cheese at the local farmer’s market as opposed to the grocery store. I’m still trying to wean off the convenience of pre-shredded cheese. it’s hard, but I know we don’t want to ingest all the fake stuff that’s in there.

  3. Renee Sherman says:

    My 80 year old mom loves cheese and crackers! I would love her to be able to have this cheese!

  4. We get a 5 pound block of their GMO free cheddar every month with Azure, this would be so fun to win!

  5. Hilary Andriesian says:

    Kids are brainwashed into thinking cheddar should be orange thanks to processed food “products” such as Cheeto’s, Cheeze-It’s, Squeeze Cheese and Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, none of which is made with good fresh delicious true cheddar…just dried cheese and food coloring. My favorite cheddars are New York and Vermont Sharp Aged Extra Sharp…now that’s flavor, and that’s real cheese! My son is now 19 and he’s still happy with a box of mac n cheese…he’s not the cheese fanatic I am …at least not yet. Maybe a box of Rumiano could do a little persuasion on the side of better eating!!
