05 Sep Win Alouette Cheese Gift Pack!
When I was a little girl, my family owned a cheese store– since then I’ve fallen in love with cheese. Recently, I discovered this spreadable cheese from Aloutte. They’re perfect for entertaining (my guests loved them!) or for a satisfying afternoon snack. Read on about the health benefits of cheese then enter to win a fabulous gift from Alouette.
Health Benefits of Cheese
Cheese is a great source of both protein and calcium. Protein increases satiety, which means it will help keep you full between meals and snacks, aiding in weight loss and weight maintenance. Protein is also a key nutrient needed for muscle strength and recovery, making it a good food to include in a post-workout meal.
Calcium is a mineral crucial for bone health. It helps prevent fractures and the development of osteoporosis. Cheese is also a good source of zinc, a mineral that helps boost your immune system, which we can all use during cold and flu season!
Some folks worry about the artery clogging saturated fat and high amounts of sodium found in full fat cheese. Low fat and low sodium cheeses are available or you can just enjoy a small amount of regular cheese. Alouette offers some light options of their traditional varieties which come in 40-calorie individual portions (hello portion control!).
