If you love cheese, but hate the calories and fat that come with an ever-so-small creamy wedge of your favorite fromage, listen up.
This new food find from Laughing Cow will give all health-conscious cheese lovers a delish and low-cal reason to safely indulge.
The Laughing Cow Light cheese wedges have just come out with three more scrumptious low-calorie flavors: Blue Cheese, Mozzeralla Sun-Dried Tomato Basil and Queso Fresco Chipotle. Other Laughing Cow Light cheese wedge flavors include Creamy Swiss, Garlic and Herb and French Onion.
Each wedge contains a mere 35 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein, 0 carbohydrates and eight percent of your calcium needs. Their creamy texture gives them gold stars in the spreadability category and their compactness gets them an A+ in the healthy snack category.
Hungry Girl, Lisa Lillien, raves about the Laughing Cow Light wedges and combines them in tons of her recipes.
Spread ‘em, dip ‘em, melt ‘em – the ways to eat them are innumerable.
