The Truth About Cheese and Health
Cheese can be part of a healthy diet if you know which ones are the best choices and know how to use them. Start with these six for maximum nutritional benefits.
Smooth, creamy, and slightly sweet, ricotta is one of the most versatile cheeses around, going from lasagnas and dips to desserts. The second highest dairy source of calcium, ricotta is low in sodium and a good source of protein and selenium, an antioxidant. Cut fat and calories by using part-skim ricotta. Try it in Fresh Tomato Lasagna (photo), Honey-Lavender Ricotta Ice Cream, and Broiled Ricotta Tomato Toasts.
