People began making cheese around 6,000 years ago as a way to preserve milk. While this began as just a way to save milk, with all of the delicious variations that have developed since then, it has become a way of life. As Loveland’s favorite pizza restaurant, you may not be surprised to learn that we LOVE cheese. In our book, happiness is a cheesy pizza pie shared among family and friends. Therefore, we wanted to take a moment to give cheese a shout out and list just a few reasons why cheese is the best.
It’s good for you
You may have heard that cheese is bad for you, but that is not true. Cheese is a rich source of such vitamins and minerals as calcium, vitamin b12, selenium, and zinc. Cheese is also a good source of protein, which helps you build muscle and stay fuller for longer. Cheese can help your bone and heart health as well. Simply put, eating cheese in moderation is completely healthy!
It makes you happy
Believe it or not, there is a scientific reason you are so happy when you eat cheese. Casein is a protein in cheese that activates your brain’s reward center, making you feel happy. It’s the same portion of your brain that lights up when you cuddle or do something fun, which explains why you can’t help but love cheese.
It goes great on pizza!
Cheese and pizza are a match made in heaven. While you can eat pizza without cheese and still have a delicious meal, as many lactose intolerant people do, but there is just something about the cheese that brings pizza to the next level.
