What is the most healthy cheese?

What is the most healthy cheese?

Several good choices: Many cheeses are naturally low in fat, such as part-skim mozzarella or goat cheese. Many others can be purchased in low-fat versions.

Are there simple cheeses not high in fat that I can have in moderation?

Maybe: I can say that there are lower fat cheeses that you may have in limited quanties. Think no more than 1-2 ounces of low fat cheese ie mozarella, farmers cheese, armenian string cheese, low fat havarti, etc. These cheese have about 80-90 cal per ounce. I'm afraid that many people can easily consume about 4 ounces--too much--and they would consider that "moderation" . Not for most of us. ...Read more
