Easy Steps to a Healthier You #3

Did you know that you can eat cheese without all the guilt? No, seriously, I'm not lying. To all of you that have always eyed the gourmet cheese counter at Mystic Market, but was afraid to order anything, fear no more, cheese can be good for you!
It is a great source of calcium, and packed with protein and fat, which help keep you full. To top it off, it's versatile and easy to convenient- making it a great snack!

Here is a quick breakdown:

SWISS: Packed with protein, calcium & B12. Try it on our Smoked CT Turkey Sandwich:

Smoked Turkey & Swiss with Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion & Garlic Mayo on a Baguette

MOZZARELLA: Mozzarella is lower in calories than many other cheeses. Try it on our Proscuitto & Mozzarella Sandwich:

San Danielle Proscuitto & Fresh Mozzarella, Sundried Tomatoes, Basil Pesto & Balsamic Viniagrette on Focaccia Bread

BLUE CHEESE: Blue Cheese can get a bad wrap, because as a dressing, it isn't too good for you, but it is best paired with fruits and nuts, and works lovely crumbled over salads. Try it on our East Market Salad:

Fresh Greens, Gorgonzola (Blue Cheese), Toasted Spiced Walnuts & Dried Cranberries

CHEDDAR: It's a little higher in calories than some of the others, but you won't loose out on the calcium or protein. Try it on our All Natural Free Range Turkey Sandwich:

All natural, no hormones or antibiotics free range Roasted Turkey with Cheddar Cheese, Cranberry Relish, Lettuce, Tomato & Mayo on a Baguette

GOAT (CHEVRE): Low in Sodium, this soft cheese is similiar to feta and works best on Salads:

Mediterranean Salad: Fresh Greens, Kalamata Olives, Artichoke Hearts, Feta Cheese, Balsamic Glazed Onions & Red Onion
