Cottage Cheese Make-Overs?

Hi group,

so I heard that cottage cheese is a healthy protein choice. There is only one downfall: I cannot
stomach it... I believe it tastes absolutely yuk (no offence to all you cottage cheese lovers out
there). Is there a way to make it more pleasing to the palate?

Any suggestions would be very welcome!

Well, I don't like it plain either, but I love it with chives and pepper, then used like a dip with
some wow doritoes.

I can't stand cottage cheese either. There are lots of other healthy ways to get protein. You
shouldn't try to force yourself to eat something you hate.

I like to put smoked salmon in it - you know those scrap bits you can buy?
with some dill or parsley.
Same with prawns. Or tinned tuna. In fact - I find you can mix almost
anything with it - try red onion too? All herbs seem to help :)

I add some artificial sweetener & some vanilla - both to taste - sometimes I also add some cinnamon
& then eat it like a desert. Elaine K

Thanks for reminding me. I had purchased some for the first time in a long time and forgot about it.
It is now my mid-morning snack and I have no trouble downing it plain - fat-free.

I like my cottege cheese with fruit. Breakstone makes Cottege Cheese Doubles. Low fat cottege cheese
plus fruit jam. 3 points for a nice evening snack or light lunch.

I have the cottage cheese with a banana and fool myself into thinking I am
eating a dessert like cheesecake or something!!!
I also get ricotta cheese and use it the same way. Perhaps ;you may like it
better than the cottage cheese.

I find ricotta sweeter than cottege cheese. Add a little bit of salt and pepper and you're all set.
How does the points compare with cottege cheese? Laura (thinking its time to go food shopping)

My dad likes his with canned peaches. Personally I like it plain. But it is also good in lasagne.

Hi Nancy,

I agree with Chrys - there are loads of protein sources that are very healthy, so don't force
yourself to eat something you can't stomach. Eating should be a pleasure, not torture. :)

Healthy meat choices: turkey, chicken, fish (oily fish such as salmon and tuna give you extra
benefits as well), and other lean cuts of meat. Healthy non-meat choices: any animal product (eggs,
any cheese, milk, yoghurt), combine rice/grains with beans/peas/other legumes, add nuts to salads,
peanut butter sandwiches, or add tofu to veggie stir fries.

Enjoy!

Cheers, Petal

two directions to go here, either put fruit on it, or put it in processor
with onions, mushrooms and spices to make into vegi dip
