PIZZA CHEESE TOASTIE
Combining our favourite things (pizza=good, cheese=good, toastie=good) in celebration today of National Cheese Lovers Day!
It’s only right that today we hero Cheese in all it’s glory. Often misunderstood as a ‘food to limit’ because of its typically high calorie and fat content, Cheese is in fact a highly nutrient-rich food. This means these calories are naturally packaged with an array of other nutrients, including protein for building and maintaining muscle mass, calcium and phosphorus for maintaining normal bones, and vitamin B12, which contributes to the normal functioning of our immune system.
Switching out regular cheddar for our low-fat Eatlean cheese helps to reduce the fat content and calories, whilst providing even more protein and the vitamins and minerals of regular cheese.
So today, when you are in need of something a little warming…opting for a protein packed, low fat, oozy melty cheese toastie is in fact a FANTASTIC option!
Today…and every day, you CAN have your cheese & eat it!
