Healthy Foods: String Cheese

Why They're Healthy:

String cheese refers to several different types of cheese where the manufacturing process aligns the proteins in the cheese, which makes it stringy.
Not just for your kid's lunchbox, string cheese is a convenient way to help bolster your intake of protein with little carbohydrate cost. Stash a bag in your fridge for when the munchies strike, but consider choosing reduced-fat versions to keep the snack calories more in your favor. If you're looking to gain mass, however, the extra calories that full-fat string cheese provides can help in your pursuit of glance-stealing size.

Quick Tip:

As with regular cheese, the stringy version offers up good amounts of bone-strengthening calcium.
