The Best Protein Choices and Worst for Your Health and the Environment (Page 19)


18. Cheese: Eat This Less

Stick to a single serving (1.5 ounces for hard cheese)—plus using a sharply flavored cheese can help you get the maximum impact for less. The EWG also recommends choosing organic and low-fat cheese, when possible. EWG lists cheese as the 3rd worst protein choice in part because they looked at 4 ounces of cheese—that’s almost three 1.5-ounce servings! EatingWell’s nutirtion editors suggest that when you eat cheese stick to one serving to do your part for the planet, and your health. Opt for part-skim mozzarella and low-fat cottage cheese.
