Typical thinking, of course, is that refined sugars and saturated fats are dirty...

I'll give you the beef and even some milk...but cheese? That's pretty dirty in the grand scheme of things. :) Quickest way I know to 'dirty' up food is to dump a bunch of cheese on it.

You didn't read my note at the bottom I guess.
