Blue cheese is actually a superfood with all kinds of good things in it, and if you eat it a few times you can acquire a taste for it. Acquiring a taste for something usually means that you eat it often enough that your body recognizes the nutrients that it gets from that flavor, and so you learn to appreciate that flavor, even if you hated it before.
Molds that simply grow on cheeses are of a different kind, and not so good for you, and not nearly so delicious.
Note: My brother-in-law is a cheese maker and could probably give me a very in-depth explanation of all of this. Maybe I'll call him sometime soon.
I sure hope not, we eat it all the time! Favorite recipe:
1lb ground bison (beef works well too)
2 oz danish blue cheese
salt and pepper
Mix salt, pepper and bison. Make 4 equal size patties. Put blue cheese on 2 of the patties. Put other patties on top of the patties with blue cheese. Press edges to seal. Make big thumb print on top in center each burger. Grill on medium heat.
So... is dairy optional on the Primal Blueprint? I had the idea that it was on the "naughty list."
It's more or less a gray area. I, for one, try not to eat any dairy except for greek yogurt, but others eat all they can handle. Some people are lactose and/or casein Intolerant, while others aren't. It's up to the individual, basically.

Is that also true for acquiring a taste for things like scotch and tobacco?
