Now that the warmer weather is here, I have been trying to eat less carbs and more protein-packed meals. Salads, fruits, vegetables, and super foods like Friendship Dairies Cottage Cheese have been helping me to achieve my goals of incorporating protein-rich super foods into my diet.
Ever since I was younger, I have always loved cottage cheese. My mom would buy the iconic Friendship Dairies Cottage Cheese, which I was always fond of because I loved that little bird on the colorful blue or pink packages. She typically bought the 1% Lowfat Cottage Cheese to add to savory pasta dishes, salads, and snacks.
It was only when I reached adulthood that I learned to mix cottage cheese with sweet components like fruits; and chocolate. I am one of those people who love a bite of sweet and savory foods, so meals like my cottage cheese fruit bowl are ideal. Now, I even have my husband and kids hooked on this superfood combination.
Did you know that Friendship Dairies 1% Lowfat Cottage Cheese has a whopping 15 grams of protein per serving? It is the orginal superfood that is ideal for achieving your daily protein needs. Mix with additional superfoods like strawberries, blueberries, and almonds and you have a really nutritious and protein-packed meal.
Speaking of superfoods, have you checked out the newly launched Superfood Generator on the Friendship Dairies site? I have been having a blast creating protein-packed superfood combos! It is such an awesome tool because you can see exactly how much protein is in each bowl you create.
To get started using the Superfood Generator, simply choose which Friendship Dairies cottage cheese you’d like to use. Then, choose three mix-ins. The list varies from fruits, greens, herbs, veggies and even nuts. Then, once you create your bowl, hit “done” and you will get your superfood summary, which is really cool!
As you can see, our superfood bowl contains strawberries, blueberries, and almonds. It was the perfect combination, which kept me satisfied for hours! I cannot wait to get inspired and create even more bowls with various ingredients.
Be sure to check out the Superfood Generator and make your protein-packed own mix-ins!
