I have just discovered Danish Feta....It is unbelievably delish...Feta is only a neutral for me but it sure does lift a salad. Are all Fetas created equal or are some meant to be avoided?

I enjoy the sheep or goat cheese feta. It adds some zing to salads!

"Real" feta cheese is made from sheep's milk, and can contain some goat's milk as well. Personally, I look for the sheep's milk feta and stay away from the cow's milk American feta just in case...

It's a toxin for me as well- but a superfood for DD1 so we always keep it in the house.

I just looked at the ingredients and sure enough Danish Feta is made from Cows milk and I guess that would most likely make it a toxin.

But Lola Manchego cheese is most definitely one of my favorites, lucky you its a black dot for me. So I guess I can have it now and then. I don't feel any diffent when I have it. I have a new thing I do now where I sit quietly after a meal to see how it makes me feel. Then I do the same after 1/2 hour and 2 hours to see if my energy levels have dropped or if a feel sleepy or lethargic. That way I avoid those foods that deplete my energy levels.

Maybe - maybe not ?
but it is true that danish " feta " is made from cows milk- so is lots of fetas...
and I must admit I prefer them with cow rather than sheep or goat  :B

When I used to eat a lot of feta cheese, my favorite was Valbresco, a sheep's cheese.

I was so happy to have discovered feta cheese. I missed my sharp cheddar's. This makes up for it. Love it sprinkled over a healthy veggie omlette.

Feta is a neutral for me but I enjoy it on salads sometimes...sheep, that is. ;)
