I am hoping someone can help me? I was wondering if we are allowed Feta Cheese, I never had this cheese before but I friend made a salad and had some of this in it and it was really yummy I was thinking of getting some, and adding this to my salad and using it as a dairy? help please

I'm not on LA Weight Loss, but I get a really good low fat feta from WalMart. It's Treasure Cave brand.

Here's the nutritional info for 1/4 cup

60 cal
3.5 fat
2 sat. fat
carb 1
protein 6

Lots of times I'll just eat 1/8 of a cup (only 30 calories and lots of flavor!) or I do use the full quarter cup if it's a big salad. I eat it probably 5x a week! I hope you're allowed to have it! By the way, it tastes just as good as full fat feta I've had.

Trader Joes even has a fat free feta...and I can't tell the difference!

That's good to know Mandalinn.. I'll have to search that out..

I loves me some feta cheese and while our COD (when we had one) never said we couldn't, I just kind of assumed that it wasn't the best thing we could eat..

I still used it on salads and stuff, but tried to contol my use quite a bit.

The thing to remember that true feta is packed in brine, which ups the sodium content considerably. So use with a lot of moderation...

Thanks for the advice never thought of that, I just tried Feta and love it but if I use it I'll have to make sure I get the low fat kind, hopefully I can get that her in Canada, we don't have a trader joes here never heard tel of that place

I think there is a recipe in the LAWL cookbook that calls for feta cheese. I don't have it in front of me, but I believe it's a Greek Pita sandwich??
