Are you a fan of fruit and cheese combos or just want a fun way to incorporate fruit into a meal? If so, take it to the next level by testing out this delicious recipe. The creaminess of the cheese with fresh sweetness of fruit will make your mouth sing! Also packed with 4g of “so good for you” fiber and 11g of filling protein. If you’re not a fan of pear, apples will work just as well.

Type 1 Beavers welcomes Jay Hewitt to Oregon State University as he shares his experience with diabetes and motivates others to overcome their obstacles with his program, “Finish Line Vision.”
Type 1 diabetes represents less than 10% of all diagnosed cases of diabetes, usually detected in childhood or young adults. It means the body can’t produce insulin, can only be treated with injections or pumps, and is neither preventable nor curable at this point in modern medicine. Getting diagnosed as a type 1 diabetic is a life-changing moment. Jay Hewitt, diagnosed in 1991 at age 24, made it a change for the better.
