Cottage cheese

Be careful when buying 'low fat' or 'low sodium' products because they often end up having a high amount of another ingredient. Always read the label!

I compared non fat cottage cheese to dry curd cottage cheese. Dry curd cottage cheese has only 3 ingredients (this means it is less processed), has MORE protein and LESS sodium and sugar! The amount of calories, fat, and carbs weren't that much of a difference.

Remember to look at the serving size when comparing labels because one product label could say 'per 1/2 cup' while the other could say 'per 1 cup' so there would be an apparent difference in the amount of ingredients

Breakfast: Cottage cheese, almond butter, chia seeds, cinnamon and almonds
