Cheese can be a healthy food ingredient that comes with many benefits.
Cheese is a great source of calcium, fat, and protein. It also contains high amounts of vitamins A and B-12, along with zinc, phosphorus, and riboflavin. Cheese made from the milk of 100 percent grass-fed animals is the highest in nutrients and also contains omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin K-2. Cheese also supports good dental health.
Fit Cheese is cholesterol free cheese that grates, melts and tastes like cheddar. Here are some suggestions from the team here on how you can enjoy cheese, not just our lactose and cholesterol cheese which grates, melts and tastes like cheddar.
Pair fresh/soft cheese with some crisp white wines
This is a great idea because it helps enhance your experience and push it to the next level. Soft cheese includes brie, Feta, Camembert, Halloumi and many others. You can combine this with white port, sauvignon blanc, Riesling, chenin blanc, chardonnay or albarino.
Serve cheese with nuts
Nuts are great to eat with Fit Cheese because they bring in the sweet note to your cheese. Pretty much any nuts will go with cheese, with pecans, hazelnuts and almond being a very good options to consider here.
Baked Brie with honey
This is an interesting way to prepare cheese for those in your life who don’t experience high cholesterol and it’s a dish you can serve at any time, not just during the festive season when many more of us enjoy a cheeseboard or three.
Preheat your oven, add some brie onto parchment paper, drizzle with some honey and you can also top the cheese with nuts, figs or anything like that. Then bake it for 5-8 minutes.
Add grated cheese to your food
Shredded or grated cheese is known to bring you a much better flavour in your food, whether it’s in salads, nachos, French fries, baked or mashed potatoes, omelets, and frittata.
Spread soft cheese onto crackers
This can be great if you want to offer an informal snack. Soft cheese is great on healthy, fibre crackers such as Ryvita or with oat cakes which have a low GI.
Cheese and fruit
Here at Fit Cheese, we’re fond of cheese with pineapple on a homemade pizza base. We’re also partial to crackers with cheese, tomato and a sprinkle of black pepper. One of our team’s absolute favourite pairing for a light supper or snack at lunchtime is toasted brown bread, with mashed banana and a slice or two of Fit Cheese. It might seem an usual combo, one that is well worth trying!
Add some melted cheddar to your dishes
Melted cheddar is ideal for a variety of great foods. It works with a cheese and onion toastie, cheesy beanos, nachos, it also works great with meatballs, creamed peas and potatoes, baked peppers, spinach artichoke bread and tortillas, amongst others. Melted Fit Cheese is an easy and tasty addition to a multitude of simple dishes.
Consume cheese with oats and apples
This can be an amazing breakfast option, and you will be impressed with how tasty this can be as a fibre focused way to start the day.
Egg muffins and cheese
So, McDonalds may be off the menu if you suffer from high cholesterol, but you can easily combine egg, muffins, and some cheese to make them soft and tasty. Search healthy egg muffin recipes online and you’ll find lots of recipes which can be made in under 10 minutes!
We’re not suggesting a state of undress in the kitchen, but we are suggesting that sometimes cheese is just grand on its own! Perfect snack to always have in your fridge and since Fit Cheese has a 6-month shelf life, is lactose and cholesterol free, it’s the perfect guilt free snack for everyone.
