Traditionally made feta contains only 264 calories in 3.5 ounces, lower than all other whole-milk cheeses except ricotta and mozzarella. The lower calorie count stems from the lower fat content, at 21 grams per 3.5 ounces. Adding protein rich feta to salads and wraps will boost your protein intake while adding a rich, tangy flavor without adding many calories.
