You won’t believe it, but cheese is on the list of “good fats.” Isn’t that wonderful? Who doesn’t love cheese? Fats as a good group have had a bad name for a long time, and Cheese has had to take most of the blame. Not all fats are bad. In fact, if you don’t eat any fat at all, you may be doing more harm than good to your body. Not only that but cutting out all fats may also be a good way to gain weight. The key to dieting well is being able to tell the difference between foods that are good for you and those that aren’t. In the same way, you need to eat more “good fats” and fewer “bad fats” that have been processed. And guess what? Our beloved cheese is one of the “good fats.” Isn’t that wonderful?
If you eat cheese in moderation, it can help you meet many of your nutritional needs. Whether it’s feta, mozzarella, or blue cheese, all of these are great ways to get protein. Hard cheese usually has more calcium than soft cheese. Like other dairy products, they are full of minerals that are good for your bones, like magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus. They also have enough vitamin A, vitamin B-12, folate, iron, and zinc. There are many ways to eat cheese. No, we don’t mean cheesy pizzas and burritos when we say this. They can also be used in a lot of healthy ways. Here are a few suggestions.
Who said that eating healthy has to be dull? Add some fresh cheese to your salads to make them look fancier. Greek and Mediterranean salads have cheeses like feta and parmesan that make the salads more interesting. But make sure that the amount of cheese doesn’t outweigh the number of vegetables. That would defeat the purpose of having a salad. You can add flavour to apple, pineapple, and tomato salads by adding thin slices of cheese.
Instead of buying pasta made from refined grains, buy pasta made from whole grains. Whole grain pastas have a lot of fiber, which helps your body digest food, lose weight, and keep your heart healthy. With cheese, like feta or parmesan, this “healthier” pasta can make a healthy meal.
Most soups go well with Cheddar and Parmigiano. Feta goes well with both spinach and onion soup and tomato soup. As the cheese melts into a hot bowl of soup, it makes the soup thick and smooth, making it a healthy and wholesome treat. Cheese can really improve the taste of your soup so why not give it a go with some great choices from Freshways?
You knew this would happen, right? We can’t remember how many times a sandwich came in handy when we were hungry late at night or on a busy weekday morning. Thank you, cheese, for making our sandwiches great since the beginning of time. At Freshways, we have some lovely bread to make a tasty sandwich in our bakery range.
