Lent is about to begin and while not all of us are Catholic, we asked one of the toughest questions of all time. If you had to give up bacon or cheese for the 40 days, which would you choose?
Well since these questions are total cheese, I’d have to say I’d give up the cheesy questions and the dairy and keep on trucking with the most underrated food group, the queen mother of all vices…….bacon. Either you like bacon, or you’re wrong. It’s like a high-five for your mouth!

Easy – I would give up bacon. I love bacon, but I only have the time to make it occasionally. Sandwiches are a decent portion of my daily diet (easy to make in the office quickly and all of the supplies can be kept in a refrigerator), and a slice of cheese is a must to make the meal complete. Cheese can be added to a large variety of meals and can even be a snack (string cheese), whereas bacon has to be cooked thoroughly and – outside of the turkey bacon I can heat up for breakfast in a decent time – isn’t timely for many situations. It would be a lesser sacrifice, which defeats the entire purpose of giving up something for Lent, but I’m all about keeping cheese in my diet.

Cheese or bacon? Do I really have to choose? I love both. I am a huge fan of bacon. I enjoy bacon in just about every way. Bacon is one of the main food groups, right? Kidding aside, even though I love bacon I actually think I would choose to give up bacon for lent. I am a meat lover. So if I could still have other meats I think I could make it. But I eat cheese on everything. Most meals I eat include cheese in some form or fashion. It would be awful tough to give up cheese. So if I had to pick, I would give up bacon for lent.
I’d give up bacon. Not because I’d want to. But because I’d lose my sanity over a life without cheese before I would a life without bacon.
Whatever it is, throw some cheese on it before you serve it to me. It’s a Gouda idea….

As much as I love bacon, I feel that cheese is more of an everyday encounter and that 40 days of no bacon is painful, I’m afraid 40 days without cheese would be torture for me.
