Happy New Year Dear Readers!!!

It’s winter time! So what’s better than cheese & wine dinners?!

Cheese is a wonderful source of protein, calcium and phosphorus, but it’s also a major source of saturated fat!!

Many cheeses are naturally lower in fat than others. These include low-fat mozzarella, cottage cheese, parmesan and feta cheese.

Cheddar, halloumi, Brie, camembert and swiss cheeses have higher fat content if not consumed in their reduced fat form.

Note that reduced-fat cheeses have about 6 grams of fat, with 4 grams of saturated fat.

What about goat cheese???

A lot of people love it but have question marks regarding how fattening is that kind of cheese!

Well the good news is that :

When compared to cow milk products like cream cheese, goat cheese is lower in fat, calories and cholesterol. It also provides more calcium and fewer carbohydrates than cream cheese. Even though goat cheese has less fat and calories, it has a rich and creamy flavor.

Another good thing is that most lactose intolerants who can’t have cow milk will be able to digest goat milk. Fat Particles in goat milk are 1/3 the size of the fat particle in cow milk :)

Treat yourself with some cheeses but be smart while choosing healthy kinds.

Remember Moderation is the key! :D
