Cottage cheese might not be at the top of your cravings list but this simple snack has big time health benefits!
Classically paired with fruit – apples here – cottage cheese is just like regular cheese before the aging or processing. In its more natural state, cheese has a higher concentrated protein – casein protein.
You can also enjoy this cheesy treat in a variety of sweet and savory options! Cottage cheese can be used in guacamole, salsa/pita chips or a spread on a sandwich to replace mayo. This cheese is low in calories, high in protein, and low in carbohydrates. Casein protein breaks down slowly and is better for fueling muscles and keeping your body functioning efficiently.
If you’re not ‘in the cottage’ with this cheese, pack your bags and get on in – you just might want to stay!
