Did you know that after a run getting protein in your body within the first 30 minutes is key to helping build and heal the muscles? Cottage cheese snacks is one of my favorite healthy options. There are lots of different options for cottage cheese pairings.
I personally love cottage cheese any way I can get it. When I was little my favorite snack was cottage cheese as a dip. I would scoop it onto corn chips or crackers. I love this afternoon cottage cheese snack. This brings me to my first cottage cheese snack pairing. Daisy 2% Low Fat Cottage Cheese is 100% pure, with no additives, preservatives, or added growth hormones* it’s also an excellent source of protein, a good source of calcium, and gluten free. Pair cottage cheese with your favorite gluten free chip or cracker.
Next option is using cottage cheese instead of ranch. Use as a dip with your favorite veggies. Carrots, celery, and cucumber are all delicious with cottage cheese. Daisy Cottage Cheese only 90 calories and is packed with 13 grams of protein (26% of your daily value!) per 1/2-cup serving of 2% cottage cheese, you can enjoy low-fat, 100% natural cottage cheese without giving up the creamy, delicious taste of ranch.
My husband recently lost 45 lbs and one of his favorite snacks is fruit with cottage cheese. Try strawberries, pears, pineapple, even raspberries. Top a mixed fruit salad with Daisy 2% Low Fat Cottage Cheese for a special treat that is also healthy.
Here are a bunch of delicious recipes from Daisy using cottage cheese. Which one of these sounds amazing to you? I am thinking the Lasagna Alfredo is on the dinner menu in the near future.
