I hate even calling this one great. Cheese can be a many savory, decadent, blissfully creamy things. But when it comes sliced, packaged and dyed bright orange it's less than appealing in comparison to some other options out there.
Cheese, in nearly any form, is stock full of calcium. But most also are stocked full of fat, calories and sodium. Now you just have to choose how you want to consume that fat. There are many options out there that are healthier and cleaner option. You didn't think I would abstaining from cheese altogether, would you? I tend to be partial to goat's cheeses, for several reasons.
Goat's cheese is the epitome of all savory, decadent and blissfully creamy things. But getting to the facts...
Why Goat's cheese is greater:
- Easier to digest
- Lower in fat
- Higher in calcium
- Higher in protein
- No additives
- No preservatives (typically - but check your label)
- No growth hormones
- Contains probiotics (the "good" bacteria)
Which all and all makes for a much tastier, much more enjoyable cheese. I'd say it's worth the indulgence.
