Cheese is a delicious food that's filling enough to be a snack on its own.
Although cheese is high in saturated fat, its role in heart disease is unclear. Some studies suggest that saturated fat doesn't raise your risk of heart disease.
Additionally, studies show that up to two servings of cheese per day don't raise LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, even in people with elevated levels.
A 2-ounce (60-gram) serving of cheese provides about 14 grams of protein and 200 calories.
