FOOD TIP OF THE DAY: Conserving Cheese Calories

One way to stretch those cheese calories is to serve cheese cubes on skewers instead of a slice-all-you-want cheese board. Alternate the cheese cubes with grape tomatoes, broccoli florets, bell pepper strips and other favorite crudités. Then, you save the bread and cracker calories too! Avoid high-fat Brie and other double-and triple-crémes: the creamier the cheese, the higher the butterfat and calories. Soft and semi-soft cheeses like Brie contain 60%-74% butterfat, triple-crème cheeses like Saint André and Explorateur have at least 75% butterfat. Stick with Parmesan (40%), Cheddar (43%), Swiss (43%), Gouda (48%), mozzarella (24%) and other cheeses with a firm or dry consistency (called the “paste”).We love Cabot’s Light Cheddars—regular, Garlic & Herb and Jalapeño, just 7% total fat.
