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.

Peanut butter and pears make a delicious snack

Pears have been around for 3000 years, and are a great source of immune-boosting vitamin C., antioxidants, high in fiber so great for digestive system, helps with dehydration, reduces fever, and are a great pre or post workout snack.

Organic creamy peanut butter generously spread on two pieces of white bread, thinly sliced Bartlett pear

Choose any sliced bread that you prefer, but we think when Bartlett pears ripen they are super juicy and sweet.
