I recently pretty much gave up cheese (I'm semi-lactose intolerant, and
the fact that I would eat a block in two days didn't help) and didn't
touch any alternatives, fat-free or otherwise, because they tasted nasty.
However, I have found the -rella brands (I dont' remember the actual
brand name), and they are very good. They don't taste exactly like
cheese, but they are a damn fine substitute and taste good in their own
right. I've been eating the zerofat-rella (which has casein), but they
also have tofu-rella, almond-rella, vegan-rella, and I think hemp-rella.
The last four rella's do have some fat in them, but it's not as much as
regular cheese. I buy it at Fresh Fields.
There is also a vegy-light singles cheese (again, the brand name escapes
me) which I also buy at Fresh Fields. Each slice has 2.5 grams of fat,
but they taste good, especially a sandwich.
