Healthy Eating Tip: Laughing Cow Cheese

My new favorite trick for eating healthy on the road is Laughing Cow cheese. Yes, the name is strange and the commercials are a little silly. But there are so many things to love about this stuff! The best part is that it doesn’t have to be refrigerated. You can throw it in your suitcase and have a snack waiting for you at your destination, as I did in Manila. Or keep it in your carry-on and have a tasty, healthy snack on the plane. It is low carb, low calorie, and vegetarian (although, of course, not vegan), plus it has protein. And it comes in several delicious flavors (although be careful with the onion flavor—make sure you have some gum for after!). I take low-carb crackers to spread it on, but it is also good with regular crackers and veggies such as celery and bell pepper. Bring along some almonds and Dove Darks, and you’ve got some good snacking ahead of you.


  1. Difficult to describe any heavily processed food stuff as “healthy” and difficult to describe this product as “cheese”. But I agree that it won’t go off on you.

  2. @NB good point. My thinking was it’s healthy compared to, say, Pizza Hut, which is both processed and really high-carb and calorie. So maybe it’s a “HealthiER Eating Tip” as opposed to flat out “Healthy”?
