    1. Cheese is considered clean, just as most dairy products (like milk) is! When we do eat cheese, we try to find the least processed with the least ingredients and purchase organic. It's up to you as to whether you include it or not. Many clean eaters are trying to lose weight, training for competitions, etc and in that case, you may not want to include cheese and the added fat to your diet.

    1. I would consider this a snack, so probably around 2 crackers. Unfortunately, I do not have the calorie count available for this recipe as of right now. I will try to include it at a later date for you.

  5. Any recommendations for a replacement for walnut oil? That's not something I have around the house.

    1. Shohreh,

      You could try substituting olive oil for the walnut oil, but it will lose a little of it's nutty flavor.
