Making the Most of Cheese

Cheese lovers may feel they have to cut out cheese altogether to follow a healthy, cancer-fighting diet. But AICR  doesn’t advise cutting any favorite food out entirely.

This week’s Health-e-Recipe, Fennel and Red Grapefruit Salad with Asiago Cheese, shows how a little cheese can go a long way. Hard cheeses like Parmesan, Romano and Asiago have a strong taste, so grated or shredded, it doesn’t take much to flavor healthy vegetables, fruits and whole grains.

Two soft cheeses – goat, which is spreadable, and crumbly feta – also give you a lot of taste in small amounts. Enjoy an ounce (4 dice) of regular softer checheeseeses in low-fat versions to help limit calories and fat. Use a cheese plane – a flat metal spatula with a slit at the base that slides over cheese to cut thinner slices than a knife.

If you avoid automatically piling cheese on sandwiches, pizza and other dishes and savor a little at a time instead, cheese can fit into a healthy diet. Click here to get a healthy recipe each week from AICR’s Test Kitchen.
