Cabot Reduced Fat Cheese

Cheese, Please!  I love cheese – I have always loved cheese, beginning in childhood. But, every time I try to cut my calories, I find myself cutting cheese since the calories and fat seem to add up so quickly.  Luckily, I have found a few options for eating cheese over the years, including yummy cheese bites from the Laughing Cow, amazing flavored fat free cheese, and decadently delicious goat cheese from Chavrie, which I have written about in the past. Keeping in that line – and because I know you likely love cheese as much as I do – I have to give you the 4-1-1 on a new fave I love – Cabot Reduced Fat Cheese.

First of all, let me start by saying that Cabot has a great variety of different reduced fat cheeses out there – in fact, I was amazed by the different cheeses and the different percentages of fat that you could choose from.  I really like the 75% Reduced Fat Sharp from Cabot.  This is just sixty calories and 2.5 fat grams per ounce and was even named the best low-fat cheese by Fitness Magazine. One serving is also only 1 weight watchers points plus point!

But it is notable that there are other varieties of Cabot low fat cheeses that might tempt your palette.  This includes the 50% Reduced Fat Jalapeno variety that I love to serve on a tray with sliced apples.   The key when buying any cheese in blocks is to slice the cheese ultra thin – you still get the delicious cheese taste that you crave with fewer calories.  Cabot also offers their cheeses in ¾ ounce Reduced Fat Minis, which are single serving, smaller portioned cheese snacks that are just 53 calories and oh-so-delicious.

You can buy Cabot cheese online from Cabot, or at stores like Safeway, Costco, or Whole Foods.

I am a huge fan of Laughing Cow cheeses, so I'll have to give this a try sometime too!
