Holy moly, it's my most recent super food discovery. I can't believe how nutritious it is! The low fat variety is low in calories, fat, and a 1/2 cup contain 13 grams of protein. I had to share. I was just blown away by how good it is for you!

So true, and now and then it's nice that you can add food/spices/seasonings, etc. to it, if so inclined. :)

I mix it with cinnamon and sugar-free apple sauce; cinnamon and pineapple; or with frozen pitted cherries.

I HATE it :lol:

But, I have begun to eat it, drained and washed, in salads with a lot of other things in it. I do wonder if I'm losing some of the nutrients in the draining and washing, but it's a start.

Greek yogurt is also a really good source of protein, in case you don't know that.

Here is a recipe for cottage cheese pancakes from the "core" recipe list in the WW area of 3FC

I've never tried it, but I'm sure it's good. The person who posted it is a family member and she wouldn't steer me wrong :lol:

This one is really delicious, especially with the addition of the recommended ingredients.

2-3 beaten eggs (I used 1 egg and 1/3 cup egg substitute)
1 cup cottage cheese
Honey or a couple of teaspoons of sugar, to taste (a banana will make it naturally sweeter) OR 2-3 packs Splenda (I used 6 packs of Splenda,I have a HUGE sweet tooth)
1 cup uncooked oatmeal
1 tsp of baking powder

When they were done I sprinkled cinnamon and splenda on top and let them sat on the plate in the oven while I cooked the rest

Optional, highly recommended ingredients:
banana
a sprinkle of cinnamon
a splash of vanilla

Grab your handy blender and dump the ingredients in, in the order they appear (otherwise the mixture will get all chunky). So, eggs in first, then start the blender. As it's blending, pour in the cottage cheese, then the banana if you're using it, then whatever sweeteners and spices you like, then the oatmeal. Once this is nicely blended, cook as you would pancakes, in a nonstick pan over medium-low heat. I love these plain or with fruit, but you can put syrup on them too, just like regular pancakes.

I love it, too. I've recently been throwing in some Fiber One Bran Buds and almonds, adds some good crunch and fiber.

The only drawback to cottage cheese is that it is VERY high in sodium!!

I love cottage cheese!

My favourite kind is the 0%. I actually think it tastes better than the full fat kind, I'm strange like that.

I never could stand to put fruit in it though. I don't know... I guess I think that cottage cheese should be savoury. Celery makes it crunchy. And crunchy is fun!
