Searching Online for Cheesy Recipes?
Cheese is a healthy dairy food but unfortunately, it is also fattening, which means that many people try to avoid it when on a diet. However, the fact is that you can enjoy cheese while still meeting your weight loss goals. Following are some good ways to add different types of cheese to your healthy eating plan.
To start with, pick cheeses that are low in calories. These include feta cheese, part skim mozzarella cheese and goat cheese. Goat cheese is an ideal substitute for cream cheese and can be used in a sandwich, pizza recipe or even for a homemade cheesecake. Mozzarella cheese is a great topping for just about any Italian dish and can also be used in omelets. Feta cheese is a great topping for salads and can also be added inside hamburgers or used as a topping for dishes such as pasta and chicken.
Consume Cheese in Moderation
Other good cheese options include parmesan, Romano and aged cheddar cheese. These types of cheese have a fairly high fat content; at the same time, they also have a very strong taste, which means that you would probably not want to add more than a tablespoon at the most to any one dish. This is not to say that you can never enjoy a fattening type of cheese. Once in a while, it is perfectly fine to enjoy some blue cheese, brie, Swiss cheese or regular cream cheese. Just be sure to do so in moderation. You will probably want to exchange the fattening cheese for another fattening yet healthy food in your diet such as nuts or avocado so you don't exceed your daily calorie intake goals.
If you plan your meals and snacks in advance and stick mostly to nutritious, yet low-fat foods you should be able to steadily lose unwanted pounds and get in shape. For some cheesy recipes that won't bust your diet, visit the Recipes section of the Metabolic Research Center's website.
