I love cheese and crackers. With Laughing Cow cheese, string cheese, and Kraft 100 Calorie cheese packs, all that was missing was a decent low cal cracker. Special K Multi Grain fills the bill. 17 crackers for 90 calories. Sometimes I take the 100 cal cheese pack, 1 piece per cracker and microwave for 15 secs. Appetizer, lunch, whatever, Mmmm!
I eat lower carb to control Type 2 diabetes (successfully!). My breakfast is frequently 2 bran wafers with cheese. I discovered that Neufchatel cheese is very similar to cream cheese but lower calories and fat. For a 2 Tablespoon serving, Neufchatel Cheese: 80 cal, 1 carb, 6 Fat, 2 Protein. Cream Cheese: 101 Cal, 1 carb, 10 Fat, 2 Protein
The downside is that neufchatel can be difficult to find. My local Giant carries their own generic brand next to the cream cheese.
