While cheese is high in calcium and protein, much of it is also packed with saturated fat and calories.
What's a health conscious cheese lover to do?
--Choose Cheese naturally lower in fat
--softer cheese like feta, fresh goat cheese (chevre), and neufchatel ( like cream cheese) naturally have about 1/3 less fat than hard cheeses such as cheddar.
Skip Nonfat and Use reduced-fat cheese where it works
--Taking all the fat out of cheese usually leaves it rubbery and tasteless. So I say don't bother.
But lower fat cheese like part-skim ricotta and mozzarella, reduced fat cheddar and lowfat cottage cheese have enough fat so the taste isn't compromised.
A Little goes a long way.
--sometimes only the full fat version will cut it. In that case a little of a strong flavoured cheese
Parmesan, blue, gorgonzola, and extra sharp cheddar---goes a long way.
