Yes, that’s right…I used to say “Cheese is the Devil” …but I was wrong. The devil is the delicious fat filled carb laden ways you can serve the protein filled low carb Cheese…so, now that I’ve learned a better way, Cheese, for me, is no longer the devil!
Since I started this adventure in Sleevedom, Cheese has really been more of a staple than ever for me…starting with low fat mozzarella string cheese sticks, 80 calories, 6g protein, less than a gram of carbs, noted as 0 (zero) on the label (which I have 2 or 3 times per week). 1 ounce of plain old Tillamook medium cheddar packs 7 grams of protein and such a low trace amount of carbs that the label indicates 0 (zero) and 110 calories! When you are sleeved a 1oz portion of cheese is a sufficient midmorning snack to keep you going through to lunch! So, sleeved or not skip the office Donut and reach for the string cheese!
