You can never have too many amazing, low-fat cheesy finds, so I'm giving you the cheesy scoop on some of my favorites right now...
Mini Babybel Light Semisoft Cheese
These little wax-coated cheese wheels have been around forever, but I just recently fell in love with 'em all over again. They make great little snacks or lunch components and you can cook with them! Break 'em up into smallish pieces, and they melt really well. (Full disclosure: I also really like playing with the red wax wrappers.)
One piece has 50 calories, 3g fat, 0g fiber, and a POINTS® value of 1.
Kraft 100 Calorie Packs Cheese Bites
These things just started popping up in some grocery stores, and I'm kind of excited. I've spotted four kinds: Cheddar, Three Cheese Blend, Cheddar & Monterey Jack, and Mozzarella, Garlic & Herb. Little bags of portion-controlled cheese cubes rock! My sole complaint: Full-fat cheese in 100-calorie packs? Come on, Kraft...
Each pack has 100 calories, 8g fat, 0g fiber, and a POINTS value of 3.
Sargento Reduced Fat Colby-Jack Cheese Sticks
String cheese is terrific, but sometimes I like a change from the same old mozzarella. These are convenient for on-the-go snacking if you need a quick cheese fix. Plus, the color combo of Colby and Monterey Jack is SO pretty. (Yep, pretty food tastes better.)
One piece has 60 calories, 4.5g fat, 0g fiber, and a POINTS value of 2.
Pirate's Booty, Aged White Cheddar
This stuff is the perfect snack for anyone who's into things like Cheetos and Cheez Doodles but trying to pull away from scary, neon-colored food items. My biggest warning to you is that it's addictive — so if you're not eating from a single-serve bag, portion some out into a bowl or baggie before you chew. To the kitchen scales!
A 1-oz. serving has 130 calories, 5g fat, 0g fiber, and a POINTS value of 3.
