The Laughing Cow Mini Babybel Light Original Cheese

I remember Babybel cheese from when I was a child. To me, there was nothing more fun than taking of the red wax coating and discovering the cheese wheel inside. While in the grocery store the other day, I was reminded of those childhood days when I stumbled across Laughing Cow Babybel Cheese. Given how saturated fat-laden cheeses tend to be, I was a little uncertain of how healthy these things actually were. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to see that there was a Light variety, with only 50 calories per cheese wheel (it turns out the regular flavor has 70 calories in each cheese round).

These little cheese wonders are an interesting consistency - they're softer than a regular block of cheddar, but they're not as soft as something like brie. They have a mild flavor, suitable either on their own or with crackers like Back to Nature Organic Stoneground Wheats: Baked Wheat and Flaxseed Crackers.

As I said before, one Laughing Cow Mini Babybel Light Original Cheese provides 50 calories, with 3 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of which is saturated fat (4% and 8% of the daily value respectively), 160 mg of sodium (7% of the DV), 6 grams of protein (no carbohydrates),and 20% of the RDA for calcium.

Babybel cheese makes for a wonderful snack - just throw a couple in your bag and go! I picked up a 6-pack for $3.49, which is a bit more than I was looking to spend. However, this is a low-calorie, high-protein and high-calcium snack, and I think it's well worth a try!
