Oh man cottage cheese is so so good for you, but it doesn’t always sound like an interesting option… or even good.
I can eat it plain out of the container but it is nice to ‘dress it up’ once in awhile. Here’s an option for you to try to use as a snack or breakfast, make your breakfast portion nearly double so that you consume close to 300 calories (if that’s all your eating).
1/2 c FF Cottage Cheese, top with 8 Mandarin Orange Slices, a pinch of Raw Almond Slices and.. Walla! This portion size is about 135 calories. Plate it on what you have clean… (usually a kids bowl for me) and eat, nice to know that you’re doing yourself good!
Why I like it: The Cottage Cheese gives you the calcium and protein, mandarin oranges throw in some Vit C, and the almonds add a pinch of iron, protein and some crunch!
