Cheeseboard: variety of cheese (cheddar, brie, parmesan, gouda...) with grape.

Want some cheese with that wine? Of course you do, or you wouldn't be here. If you also want a cheese that fits into your low-carb diet, we have some good news. Most cheeses do! In fact, many are so low in carbs that they fit the stricter keto diet.

So the next time you're feeling cheesy, consult this list to help you decide what's a gouda idea to snack on, and what's nacho style. (We're so sorry.)
