|Stuffed Tomatoes with Goat Cheese|
|Category: Side Dishes|
Description: This is a great recipe to try when the tomatoes and herbs are ready for harvest.
There are many advantages to goat cheese. Since one member of my family is lactose intolerant, we embraced this easy to digest cheese for its flavor. And now that I am also concerned about fat content and calories, I have learned that goat cheese is the healthy choice both those reasons.
When compared to cow milk products like cream cheese, goat cheese is lower in fat, calories and cholesterol. It also provides more calcium and fewer carbohydrates than cream cheese. Even though goat cheese has less calories, it has a full, rich and creamy flavor.
