healthy snacks: cottage cheese

It’s not exotic like feta, but cottage cheese is one of the healthiest cheeses on the market. It is an invaluable source of protein and contains healthy fats, said to help prevent diabetes. It is also high in calcium, which is good for your bones.

Cottage cheese is an extremely versatile cheese and can be eaten with almost anything. You can put it in pasta, on pizza or whip it into a cheesecake. Today, we’re keeping things healthy, and have compiled a list of my favorite tasty – and healthy! – cottage cheese snacks.

Cottage cheese and cantaloupe

Cottage cheese can be enjoyed with almost any fruit, but this one is an old favorite. Using half a raw cantaloupe as a bowl, scoop out the seeds in the center and fill with cottage cheese.

Cottage cheese on crackers

Again, you’re welcome to add anything you can fit on a cracker. Personally, I enjoy spreading some peanut butter on a multigrain cracker, covering it in cottage cheese, and a tiny drizzle of honey to sweeten.

Cottage cheese omelet

Cottage cheese is a tasty additive to any egg dish. I make a delicious omelet with mushrooms, onion and cottage cheese. It is also great with tomato and basil.

Cottage cheese-filled Pierogi

A great filling for a traditional Polish dish, and great for sharing with the family. Lucky for you, we recently posted the  recipe too!

Cottage cheese and banana bruschetta

Made famous by Australian health and fitness guru, Michelle Bridges, banana bruschetta will satisfy those sweet cravings.
