Goat cheese is creamy and delicious and, best of all, it’s surprisingly healthy! According to some things we recently came across* online, goat cheese offers the following health benefits and then some:
– it’s lower in fat and calories, while being higher in protein, than cheese made from cow’s milk
– its calcium helps to rev you metabolism
– it’s low in sodium and cholesterol
– it contains more vitamin D, K, thiamine and niacin than cheese made from cow’s milk
Having read about all of goat cheese’s benefits, we couldn’t help but come up with a couple GK pasta dishes to incorporate the cheese into our diets. First, check out our breakfast carbonara on the left. Hayley, our social media manager, fried a bit of back bacon in butter, tossed it with HIGH PROTEIN Linguine, goat cheese, a hint of lemon, and topped it all with free range eggs and ground pepper. The result? A high-protein dish with healthy fats and resistant starches, otherwise known as a great way to fuel the rest of your day.
