New Goodie: Nancy's Cultured Cottage Cheese

What comes to mind when you think of cottage cheese? For me it's the words "diet plate." You know, that hideous bland mound sitting on a sad, little lettuce leaf, the last thing you'd ever order in a diner. Since I started weight training, I have been looking for ways to boost my protein intake without having to rely solely on lots of meat. Cottage cheese was suggested to me as a great source of lean protein but I was skeptical. But I have found the most delicious cottage cheese that's so good and so nutritious that I actually enjoy eating it.

Nancy's Cultured Cottage Cheese is awesome! It's rich, creamy and tangy. It's low in fat, high in protein (14 grams per serving) and loaded with probiotic cultures. It's a nice change from Greek yogurt and is quite a bit more filling. I like it over any kind of fruit, especially a creamy, ripe anjou pear, topped with a handful of Kashi Go Lean. What's better than a bowl of creamy, sweet, tangy and crunchy?

I had no idea that cottage cheese was so versatile until someone shared this Stumptous link with me. The bean and avocado salad sounds so good! Have you had cottage cheese recently? If not, give Nancy's a try. It's good stuff.
