This week’s substitution recommendation is goat cheese vs. low-fat cheese
or cow cheese. First of all, while full-fat cheese has more calories than a
low-fat alternative, it is much more filling. Studies have shown, those
who ate full-fat dairy vs low-fat dairy had less likelihood of obesity. On top
of that, low-fat dairy is normally filled with additives and preservatives as
well as increased sugar to help with taste.
As to the benefits of goat cheese, the vitamins and minerals as well as
heart healthy fats is much more beneficial than cow cheese. One example,
would be copper. Copper aids in the production of red blood cells that
carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Copper is instrumental
in helping in the absorption of nutrients. Goat cheese also contains
conjugated linoleic acid which is a type of fat that reduces heart disease as
well as risks for many types of cancer and CLA can also aid your body in
burning more fat!!
So to be the G.O.A.T. substitute your cow cheese with goat cheese!!
