THINK ABOUT THIS…

Goat’s cheese: One cup of soft goat’s cheese is 640 calories. That may sound like a lot, but goat cheese at 40 calories per tablespoon has fewer calories than cheddar cheese made from cows milk at 60 calories per tablespoon. Most people who are sensitive to the casein in cow’s milk products can tolerate goat’s milk products.
