Happy Monday everyone!  Today I want to share a product that I’ve been slightly obsessed with for the past few weeks.  Introducing:  VEGGIE SHREDS!  This soy-based cheese substitute that has now become a staple in my house.  Check out the nutrition stats so you can compare yourself!

Cheddar Veggie Shreds:

  • Serving Size:  1/4 cup
  • 70 Calories
  • 4 g fat
  • 0 g saturated fat
  • 6 g protein
  • 0 mg cholesterol
  • 260 mg sodium
Cow’s Milk Cheddar Cheese
  • Serving Size:  1/4 cup
  • 113 Calories
  • 9 g fat
  • 6 g saturated fat
  • 7 g protein
  • 30 mg  cholesterol
  • 175 mg sodium

The flavor is pretty similar to cow’s milk cheese with half the fat and no cholesterol!   My personal favorite uses are in grilled cheese and omelets!  Downside:  a little higher sodium content and the veggie shreds take a little longer to melt so you’ll need to turn the heat a little lower and give it a few extra minutes!

Hope you’re having a great day!
