Feta Brings Fast Flavor to the Table
(NewsUSA) - Health nuts often hear that eating cheese is taboo -- but cheese can fit into any healthy diet. Yes, cheese contains more fat and calories than, say, a celery stick. But unlike candy bars or sodas, cheese offers important nutrients, including B vitamins, calcium and protein -- things you might want to keep in your diet.
The key to responsible cheese consumption is to choose cheeses that offer big flavor, so you can eat less and still feel satisfied. For example, feta cheese's tangy flavor lets a little go a long way. And the cheese is tasty to boot. In fact, President Crumbled Feta (www.PresidentCheese.com) won the 2008 ChefsBest award, a prize given by an independent judging organization that tests America's best food products.
If you'd like a more flavorful breakfast, consider adding feta cheese to your next omelet.
