I prefer neufchatel cheese; it's the 1/3rd less fat option. I've actually been eating it a long time, not caring about the fat content (I don't normally do low-fat stuff) because I really like the flavor. Philadelphia's 1/3 fat version is neufchatel, but I usually get the more clearly labeled store brand. Cuts the calories, and has a nicer, ever-so-slightly sharper flavor.

The whipped variety is usually a good choice as most people use less and as long as you are not globbing it on...it's probably a good choice. Yes, I Laughing Cow has a reduced fat cream cheese...check out the label and see what is right for you.

Enjoy!

Yes, "cream cheese" is the Philly sort. Most stores carry their own brand, also. The whipped version is easier to spread and use from the container... but you can save a nickel by softening it up and whipping it yourself. You can also add yummy flavorings to it when you do! Just don't buy that low/no/reduced fat stuff. When they remove the fat, generally they add other stuff that's far worse (and the fat in cream cheese is the good sort to begin with).

I also love the Laughing Cow wedges. They make delicious finger-snacks, and I soften them up to add to meat roll-ups too. Good lunch take-alongs!

I use Temptee whipped - lower calorie and easier to spread. I rarely use more than 1 tblspoon

I figure they mean the blocks of cream cheese, but the whipped would be good also. It is the real thing, just fluffed up for easier spreading. I prefer the laughing cow cream cheese wedges. They come in multiple flavors for bagels or crackers.

When it says cream cheese on my meal plan... is there a specific cream cheese I should be looking for? I eat Philadelphia...the whipped one, and I don't think that's the cream cheese they're referring to. So what do I buy?? Thanks
