I’m not big on having three huge meals, I like eating…all day 🙂 I usually have 5 mini meals of 200-300 calories each, but sometimes I enjoy indulging in a yummy dinner. So, if you can’t tell, I love snacks and finding new healthy items to incorporate in my diet! This week I found a new favorite item at the super market….The Laughing Cow Cheese wedges!
I’ve always loved cheese sticks and cheese spreads, but I’ve not found a great tasting healthy/low calorie cheese spread brand until I came across these cute portioned packs. I would not have picked it up on my own, but after trying a sample of it this week…I fell in love with the amazing taste and texture it had!! I always like eating crackers with cream cheese or pretzels and cream cheese, but it’s hard to portion and cream cheese has a high fat content! However, with these little triangles, it’s perfectly portioned and you can eat them without guilt because they’re only 35-50 calories depending on the
type that you get. I tried the Creamy Swiss one, and yes-it was very creamy and I felt like I was definitely having a treat even though it was light and half the fat of regular cheese!
They also have other types that I plan on trying including regular cream cheese, garlic spread, and tomato basil! Yummy, yum-I recommend eating them with whole grain crackers, flat pretzels, and apples! You could try it on toast, and in place of your spread on bagels if you tend to overdo it on the cream cheese.
I think I might even try on cutting these little guys up and putting them into my salads*. I love adding feta and goat cheese to salads- but they aren’t always the healthiest choices…I love variety and new flavors 🙂
I definitely recommend these little guys if you’re looking something to curb your hunger during that dreaded three o’ clock hunger strike or even when you just want something to help a cheeeezzy craving 🙂 They’re also really good to take on the go– so you don’t have to take a big cheese container and worry about finding a cold place to put it when you’re done!
