Cheese Pedestal
Rethink Your Cheese Plate

It's easy to go overboard when it comes to predinner cheeses. That's why dietitian Martin recommends avoiding fat-laden varieties to begin with. "Instead, try low-fat cheese like Swiss or mozzarella," she suggests.

Manning also suggests skipping creamier cheeses for dry, aged varieties, such as Gruyere. "These are best enjoyed alone without the usual crackers," she says. "They're also full of flavor, so they don't leave you wanting more."
