Perfect harmony? Recent research confirms that one of your favorites is perhaps a near-perfect meal:
Bottom Line: It's not often that your favorite food indulgences are endorsed as a potentially perfect combination for your health but this might be it. If you're a wino and love nothing more than an evening of wine, cheese and crackers - you're potentially picking a meal that suits your desires and your health.
Last week research published in the European Journal of Epidemiology suggested there wasn't increased risk of cardiovascular issues related to cheese consumption or increased stroke risk. In fact, due to the protein's a certain cheese cultures, there may be more benefit than not in moderation for most people. Then add in the research we have on wine... In moderation you've likely been aware that it can be beneficial for your health (especially reds). Put the two together and you get idea!
It's obviously not the most balanced meal nutritionally but as far as indulgences go...it might not get any better in terms of loving what you're consuming inside & out.
