Here is a great tip I learned a few years ago in school. If you have a choice between white and yellow cheese, pick the white cheese because it is less inflammatory than yellow cheese.
This makes sense in Chinese medicine. Yellow color of the tongue coating reflects a heat type of condition in the body. This translates to inflammation in the body. White color is more cold, and will not cause any heat or inflammation.
So, when you have your breakfast taco tomorrow morning, ask for monterrey cheese instead of cheddar!
Have a peaceful day!
