Sticking to an anti-inflammatory diet isn’t easy. It involves cutting ties with gluten, dairy, and (of course) sugar. Sure, there are some amazing nut cheeses, but they aren’t typically what’s being cut into cubes and passed around on Bachelorette Mondays at your friend’s place.

Good news: Scientists just endorsed a way for you to get your cheese fix while still sticking to your meal plan. According to Metro UK, a new study out of Korea found that the probiotics in Swiss cheese actually have the ability to reduce inflammation and strengthen your immune system. Is your mind-blown?

A new study found that the probiotics in Swiss cheese actually have the ability to reduce inflammation and strengthen your immune system.

The Korean study doesn’t stand alone: When researchers fed cheese containing the probiotic strain to mice in another recent study, it helped protect them from acute colitis.

While you’re preparing your perfectly ‘gramable cheese board–with Swiss as the star, of course—be sure to add some walnuts. Researchers found them to be effective in reducing appetite due to their high omega-3 fatty acid content. “Walnuts can alter the way our brains view food and impact our appetites,” says the study’s lead author, Olivia M. Farr of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. “Our results confirm the current recommendations to include walnuts as part of a healthy diet.”

Now that Swiss cheese is back on the table, so to speak, those walnuts just might help stop you from gobbling up the whole plate. After all, there’s one piece of healthy eating advice that has yet to be disputed: Everything in moderation.

For more nutritious snack ideas, here’s what nutritionists eat. And these are the healthiest foods at Trader Joe’s right now.
