Cottage cheese is one terrific food! It packs a wallop of protein (14 grams) into each 100 calorie half-cup serving. And you'll get away with just 1 1/2 grams of saturated fat in a perfectly creamy 2% cottage cheese. Find a hard cheese with so little saturated fat.
But cottage cheese has a problem. The sodium typically hovers around 400 milligrams, a quarter of a day's worth, per 1/2 cup. Not so terrific.
Breakstone's 30% less sodium cottage cheese tastes no different than regular cottage cheese. They have also added potassium (420 mg per half cup) helps lower blood pressure.
Top with fresh peaches, berries, bananas, melon or any other fruit. Mix it into your scrambled eggs or pancake batter to add a low cholesterol protein.
Food for Thought: The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Strengthen Your Desire! Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat.
