The Willems family have been making Coolea on their farm in Macroom, Co Cork since 1979. They moved from the Netherlands to Ireland in the 1970’s. Gouda was impossible to get locally at the time so they wrote home for a recipe and the rest is history. This is a mild, semi firm cheese when young and is intensely full flavored when mature.
3 Tbsp shaved Coolea Cheese
1 fennel bulb, shaved paper thin
bunch of arugula
8oz grape tomatoes (red or yellow or both)
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 cup pecans
2 Tbsp melted butter
milled black pepper
Shave the fennel bulb finely , either with a mandolin or sharp knife.
Wash and dry the arugula.
In a bowl, whisk the oil and lemon juice, and set it aside.
Pre heat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
In a small bowl mix together the pecans, melted butter, salt and pepper. Spread them on the baking sheet. Set this sheet aside until ready to put in the oven.
Wash and dry the tomatoes. Place them on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper, sprinkle with olive oil and kosher salt. Roast on the top shelf of the oven for 15 minutes.
At the same time put the pecans on the bottom shelf, removing after 3-4 minutes and allow to cool.
Allow tomatoes to cool.
In a large serving bowl place fennel and arugula, add tomatoes and pecans. Shave Coolea Cheese on top, pour in dressing and toss.
The foods we eat contain a multitude of chemicals that we’re often not aware of. Some of these substances tend to promote health while others are associated with an increased risk of disease. Ellagic acid is an example of a regularly consumed phytochemical (plant chemical) that may very well contribute to the betterment of our health.
The question many people have is, “How do we really know if something is healthy for us?”. In the case of ellagic acid the answer is found in the condition of the skin. But this is a unique substance, in that it helps whether you consume it in a food/supplement form or apply it directly to the skin.
Ellagic acid (EA) is a type of antioxidant referred to as a “polyphenol”. The most plentiful food sources of EA are blackberries, cranberries, pecans, pomegranates, purple/red grapes, raspberries, strawberries and walnuts. Some of the benefits of all of these fruits and nuts may be directly attributable to their EA content.

Holiday Weight Gain
You love to eat during the holidays... BUT if you eat too much when you celebrate, you might be playing Santa at your next office party.
The average weight an adult gains each holiday season is 2 pounds! What’s worse... most of us never lose it.
Will you be Naughty or Nice?
- Pecan Pie (500 calories / slice) vs. Pumpkin Pie (230 calories / slice)
- Turkey Leg with skin (148 calories/ serving) vs. Honey Ham (67 calories / serving)
- Cheese Tray (110 calories / serving) vs. Fruit Tray (80 calories / serving)
- Dinner roll (140 calories / roll) vs. Salad w/o dressing (15 cal / serving)
- Macaroni and Cheese (320 calories / serving) vs. Green Bean Casserole (110 calories / serving)
- Eggnog (391 calories / 8 oz.) vs. Champagne (96 calories / 8 oz.)
- Calorie Total: 1,609 vs. Calorie Total: 598
If you go Naughty, you’ll consume 1,609 calories in one sitting! That’ll take 2.5 hours of high-impact aerobics to burn off.
If you go Nice, you’ll consume only 598 calories. You’re only in for less than 1 hour of high-impact aerobics!
If you pack on 2 pounds each year starting when you’re 21, by the time you are 45 years old, you will have gained 48 lbs.
How can you keep the holiday merriment off your hips?
Eat before you go. It’s tempting to go to a holiday party starving, but it means you’ll likely stuff yourself. Snack before you go and save yourself from overeating.
Exercise daily. Get a minimum of 30 mins of activity a day, even if you’d rather hibernate near the fireplace. If you do gorge yourself at the big feast, go to the gym the next morning!
Eat slowly. Your brain might want to eat all the things, but it also needs 20 minutes to know your stomach is full. Drink a glass of water before you start eating as well - it helps to curb your hunger.
Portion control. Can’t resist the holiday treats? Serve yourself half of a normal portion and save a ton of calories. Then you don’t have to be embarrassed that you don’t fit into your New Year’s Eve dress!
So you couldn’t resist the pie
You knew better, but you ate it all anyway and now your waistline is a little out of control. Don’t worry - you’re not on Santa’s Naughty list yet! Start making healthy decisions this holiday season!
