Babs, who is also known as “The Healthy Cheese Lady” is currently writing a book about healthy cheeses, and she spends much of her time educating people about the nutritional benefits cheeses can provide. She is determined to let people know that for far too long we have been misinformed and lied to by so-called nutritional and medical experts who told us that saturated fat has no place in a healthy diet and to avoid eating cheese. “The guidelines for a healthy diet have been killing us since the late 70’s,” said Babs, who has used her anger to motivate her to spread her message to as many people as possible.
She discusses with Doug the differences between industrial cheeses and farmstead cheeses, and some of the ways a consumer can determine which cheeses are best for their health. Babs talks about her Texas Cheese Tour, a journey she wrote about after traveling across the state in 2012 and 2013 to find out why and how great cheese is made. The tour included interviews with chefs, cheese store owners, dairy farmers, restaurant owners, marketing specialists, professional cheesemakers, and one home cheesemaker. During her tour, Babs learned interesting behind-the-scenes details about animals, cheese nutrition, and the cheesemaking process.
In addition to working on her book about healthy cheeses (no publication date has yet been announced), Babs is currently gearing up for a Keto Cheese Diet she plans to launch via Zoom in February (check her Facebook page for details).
