I try to buy the best quality cheese I can and use it sparingly. 2 weeks ago I had a raw milk cheddar that I met the farmer who makes it, $14 for 1 lb, but at room temp, it was amazing! I have some feta, a soft goat cheese, a good asiago, a sharp cheddar, and a small bit of blue cheese in the fridge now.....just a little here and there to set off a meal....yummy!

Make sure if your doing the beans yourself that you change the water multiple times during your soak and you can use a few bay leaves or kombu (seaweed) while you cook them. These are both high in glutamic acid and reduces the gas producing properties.

I had a horse leaders 4-h meeting last week, had cottage cheese at lunch, thought I'd try it again, and wouldn't ya guess?? Got gassy during the mtg,

emoticon

so lesson learned once and for all, if I have to be in public, no cottage cheese...although I love it and its great protein....

Long story short:
I'd posted a while back about maybe being lactose intolerant, and this day proved it beyond doubt...

I find it's high when you add it in with the rest of your food for the day. And what you describe is a lower sodium variety than I have access to.

High sodium huh? Regular lowfat Knudsens CG has around 440mg per 1/2 cp and the lowest I have seen is Fiber one CG with 430mg per 1/2 cp but the protein drops about 4 gms on this product. I dont really consider either too high, unless your just sensitive to sodium.

I LOVE cheese!!!

The only problem with cottage cheese (and the reason I don't eat it very much anymore) is mega sodium!!

Has anyone ever seen a low-sodium variety?

I LOVE goat cheese, feta, Parmesan, extra sharp white cheddar....I LOVE cheese....I either buy it real expensive and dole it out sparingly or buy the really mild cheddar which I could care less about and let the kids have it....when I was about 2 my mom had taken me grocery shopping and I was hungry on the way home, so she opened a block of cheese and handed it to me, I was quiet all the way home and ate nearly half the loaf! insert sheepish grin here

What about the Queso Fresca (did I spell that right?) you told me about? I actually found it in WalMart here! Didn't buy anything because I had enough Feta to last a while, but I'll try it next time, if it fits into whatever you throw at me next. :-)

Thought I would share some info on cheeses since I am such a cheese lover. I find it difficult to be away from one of my true loves, cheese. So I thought I would list some of the best choices as far as protein count to fat count. Might as well get the best bang for your buck when choosing cheese and not feel guilty about it.
1% Cottage cheese of course tops the list at 1/4 cp
14 gms protein and 1.2 gms fat
Pamesan, 1/4 cp is another
10 gms protein and 7.5 gms fat
Ricotta, part-skim 1/4 cp
7 gms protein and 4.9 gms fat
The 3 Gs are great as well
Goat 1 oz
6 gms, 6.5 gms
Gouda
7 gms, 7.8 gms
Gruyere 1/4 cp
8 gms, 8.7 gms

So enjoy some cheese and never say no to anything. Moderation leads to relaxation.
