One bite, and you’ll be a believer (we promise).

Cottage cheese is great for breakfast because it’s low calorie and high protein: to keep you full all day long! Let us be the first to declare: the whole cottage cheese and pineapple idea has never been our thing. But top it with fresh berries or apples and cinnamon, and it’s a whole new ballgame. Promise! If you have a texture thing about cottage cheese, we get it. But we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised here! Here’s what to do:

Add ¾ cup cottage cheese to a bowl. All brands taste different, so find one you love. (We like the flavor of Daisy brand.)
Top with berries or diced apple. For the berry bowl shown here, we used blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. For the apple cinnamon, we used Pink Lady apples (our favorite variety!).
Add a sprinkle of chopped nuts. Go with pistachios for the berry bowl and pecans for the apple.
Add a pinch of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey. Both ingredients are essential to taking the flavors up a notch. You can use maple syrup if you prefer.
A healthy way to start the day
Make up a cottage cheese breakfast bowl and it’s both delicious and filling. One serving with ½ cup blueberries and 2 tablespoons chopped pistachios has:

234 calories
25 grams protein
One thing to watch with cottage cheese is the sodium: this recipe has 30% of your daily sodium. This shouldn’t be a problem if you cook healthy, whole food meals on the regular, but keep it in mind if you also eat lots of salty foods during the day.
