Cheese should basically be its own food group.
There are so many different cheese flavors and textures to enjoy, and truly, no two cheeses are alike. If you think about it, most of America has become a cheese society, meaning that anything and everything we can cover in cheese, we do.
But as it turns out, not all cheeses are created equal. It’s no surprise that pregnant women are given a whole list of foods to steer clear of, and these warnings aren’t to be taken lightly. One thing that expectant mothers are told not to eat is soft, spreadable cheese, such as Brie or Camembert. These foods were initially thought to only have negative effects on pregnancy during the final months, but now, a new study says that soft cheese could be harmful from the start.
