Cheese

For as long as I can remember, I have been having american cheese on my turkey sandwiches at lunch. Well, after reading up on what american cheese actually is, I've decided to try and change to something different. I tried provolone this week, and it isn't half bad. Someone also suggested swiss, and someone else sliced cheddar. Just wondering what you guys use, and what you find/know to be most healthy.

part-skim mozzarella. High in calcium and protein, low in fat. Tasty, too

Havarti is my favourite deli-sliced cheese for sandwiches. I'm a sucker for the full-fat Havarti, but the skim stuff is nice too. At the deli counter you can sometimes get Havarti with stuff in it, like herbs or hot peppers.

I switched to Colby not too long ago. I used to be a cheddar man, but found most cheddar too greasy for my tastes after I started my diet.
Bonus: Colby has a higher melting point, which makes it great for grilled cheese sandwiches.

Cheese is healthy. Don't sweat it.

Cheddar cheese generally has more bite than processed cheese and is good for adding some flavor to an otherwise bland offering. Actually I find processed cheese to be overly bland and a little too sweet.

Real cheeses aren't as sweet and will have some kind of flavor lacking in processed cheese.

Swiss cheese or Emmental cheese has a really nice nutty flavor and actually is one of the few "real" cheeses that is a little sweet on the palate. Gouda is another nice semi-hard cheese to try.

I'm a real fan of soft cheeses such as Brie and blue cheeses. YUM.

Find a cheesemonger at a good supermarket and dive in. There's a whole world of goodness. Moderation is key.
