Any Low Fat Cheese Ideas?

I love cheddar cheese, and I am looking for a low fat cheese with that sort of taste. Any ideas? Thanks

Cheese

I posted lat week about how I loved cheese and got tons of responses. A big one was Laughing Cow cheese. It comes in little individualy wraped triangles and the low cal is only 35 per triangle. It is soft and spreadable and I've fallen in love with it. It's very rich. I'm not a fan of eating it on it's own but have tried it on sandwiches, bagels, crackers, lunch meat, and omlettes. It's very good. You can usually find it with the gourmet cheeses. My thread was called CHEESE! Check it out.

Wow, I didn't know Laughing Cow is so low in cals. As a stand-alone cheese, it's pretty crummy, but delicious spread on a baguette.... one of my favorite breakfasts, actually.

I believe mozarella is lower in calories than many cheeses... can anyone verify?

Yes, low-moisture part-skim mozzarella is lower calorie than the rest of the cheeses - at my grocery store, the pre-packaged sliced cheese is 80 cals/slice for every kind but mozzarella; mozzarella is 60 cals/slice.

Try http://www.cabotcheese.com/
You will not be disappointed! Several different kinds. The light cheddar is excellent. They make 50% & 75% light. Makes GREAT mac & cheese.
The habanero cheddar makes a grilled sandwich with bite! Check your local grocer & see if they carry it before ordering online. :)

Enjoy!

cheddar cheese

Oh, & forgot to mention.....http://www.buydreamfields.com/
My husband & I have been using it for years. Like it better than "high-carb" pasta! Thus the low fat cheese for mac & cheese, his favorite dish.
They also have fantastic recipes.
I hope they come out with angel hair soon!

Happy/healthy eating to all :)

I have only found laughing cow in a swiss cheese wedges oh and garlic something. Is there other kinds. I have been shy to try it since it is so expensive.
I use kraft fat free cheddar and it is ok. But really it is for looks more than anything. I wouldn't want to rely on it for flavor.
I use mozzerella slices if I want a stringiness to my lasana or such.
I also use Safeway brand fat free american slices and I know kraft has fat free sharp cheedar slices though I haven't tried them.
The ff american is excellent for melting and taste. Only 30 cal a slice.
And Smart Beat has an american cheese that is only 25 cal a slice and it is very good as well. Taste and texture better than the Safeway brand. But it is more costly too.
Also, I know you didn't ask but I will tell anyway, if you are looking for a great fat free cream cheese buy Philidelphia fat free.
It isn't as good taste wise but you usually mix it with something anyway. But texture wise it is perfect. I tried the store brand and hated it. I almost didn't try the Philly I am so glad I did. It is usually around 2.59 for 8 oz but it lasts a long time. For me anyway.

Laughing Cow is just swiss cheese flavored, and the garlic one (which is also swiss cheese.) But it really just tastes like a creamy spreadable cheese. It's really good, but no, it doesn't taste like cheddar.

And, at about $4 for a pack of 8 wedges, it's really not that expensive. I used to use it all the time on mini bagels for breakfast, and I could get one wedge to cover both halves.
