For breakfast we added peanut butter, blueberries, and slices of banana to cottage cheese topped with fig jam.

Cottage cheese is an excellent source of protein, packed with many nutrients like B vitamins, calcium, phosphorus and selenium.

Selenium has been shown to increase antioxidant protection in the blood.

Because of its high protein content cottage cheese is popular among athletes and people who exercise.

It is packed with casein protein. Casein is a slowly absorbed protein that promotes muscle gain and helps prevent muscle breakdown.

We love cottage cheese for breakfast, or a cool snack after a work out.
