Cheese Please

17 Nov

Like most people I know, I love cheese. I eat cheese too often, especially during the holidays. There is no escaping the warm baked brie sitting on the table or that delightful piece of havarti on my all time favorite cracker. Although cheese is impossible to avoid, it has become much easier to find less fattening cheeses that don’t taste like cardboard. So, if you’re hosting a holiday soiree, book club or your own personal pity festival, try to reach for a low-fat alternative. Here are a few that I think are quite good:

Alouette Light Garlic & Herbs spreadable cheese

The Laughing Cow Light Blue cheese

Athenos Fat-Free Feta

Cabot 50% Reduced Fat Cheddar

Jarlsberg Lite

A big wedge of brie (ok, ok…this isn’t supposed to be on the list, but how I can I NOT eat this? 😉 )

Two other helpful hints: try to eat before going to a party and nosh on the grapes and other platter side fruit to fill you up while you’re there.

Enjoy the party (standing far away from the cheese platter)
