Cheddar, Feta, Mozzarella: the Most Nutritious Cheeses You Can Eat

If you’ve struck cheese off your diet because you think it’s not good for you, USA Today has some ideas for keeping cheese on your menu, and still eat healthy. Feta, goat, blue, fresh mozzarella, sharp cheddar and Parmesan cheeses are among those the news agency suggests.

Cheese has long been demonized for its saturated fat content, but research shows it has many benefits, including improved cardiovascular health and a lower risk for obesity and diabetes. When you look at these benefits, you’ll find that even full-fat cheese has many benefits.

Other types of full-fat dairy products, such as milk and yogurt, also have far greater health benefits than their low-fat counterparts, including a lower risk for obesity and diabetes. Yet, contrary to what we know about these healthy fats, we have spent decades trading saturated fats for added sugars and trans fats in our diet — only to find this is a recipe for obesity, heart disease, cancer and other chronic diseases.

Thank goodness, ongoing research exonerates high-fat cheese, which can improve your health by raising your high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, thought to be protective against metabolic diseases and heart disease. In fact, mounting evidence clearly shows that a high-fat, low net carb diet can be exceptionally effective for weight loss.

If you’re ready to add this delicious food back into your diet, be sure to choose REAL cheese — you can tell a natural cheese by its label, which will state the name of the cheese variety, such as "cheddar cheese," "blue cheese" or "brie." Real cheese also requires refrigeration.

Also, be sure to opt for cheese made from raw grass-fed milk (i.e., milk from cows raised on pasture, rather than grain-fed or soy-fed animals confined to feedlots).
