Saint-Paulin Fromagerie D'Oka

Sure, the packaging made it all look innocent enough, but 350 grams of Saint-Paulin have somehow disappeared after just 5 days in my fridge.  That's a good-sized chunk.

Rob brought it home and left it in plain view and now the entire round has somehow disappeared.  Where oh where did it go? 

All told, over 1000 calories. In Weightwatchers parlance that is about 36 points (almost an entire weekly 'treat' allowance).  Mea culpa!

Saint-Paulin is made in accordance with the authentic Trappist recipe and set in the original cellars of the Oka abbey.  So it can't be all that bad.  Sure tasted good. 

If only I could put that "all things in moderation" advice into practice! 

My chunk was just over  .722 pounds or .350 kilograms.

To help put things into perspective and for comparison purposes the average intake of cheese per person in various countries
Enough feeling guilty, already.

Of course, there is another way of looking at this. Appetite and drive for specific foods may be a biological mechanism to assure intake of all necessary nutritional components.  In other words, my body is craving calcium.
