Nonfat cottage cheese is a great protein packed snack to enjoy anytime of the day. Add some fresh fruit like blueberries, pineapple or peaches and increase the nutrients even more. Cottage cheese provides high quality protein and is also a good source of riboflavin and calcium.
Cottage cheese is a soft, fresh-curd variety of cheese that has been made in Europe and America for centuries. It is an uncured cheese (one that has not been aged), and is favored by weight watchers because it is lower in fat than most cheeses.
In the process of making cottage cheese, the first stage of cheese making takes place as the milk is separated into curds (milk protein and butter fat) and whey (the liquid component of milk). The curds are then gently heated and drained. The cheese is now ready to eat, though cream and seasoning may be added to some varieties.
Pump Up The Protein
A great way to add extra protein is by adding a scoop or two of why protein powder to your cottage cheese. Mix in a scoop of vanilla or chocolate whey protein and stir it with a spoon. This makes for a tasty, super high protein snack!
Flaxseed Oil with Cottage Cheese?
Dr. Johanna Budwig is known and highly respected around the world, as Germany’s premier biochemist. Over the years she has published a number of books including “Flax Oil as a True Aid Against Arthritis, Heart Infarction, Cancer, and other Diseases”.
In the mid 1950’s, Dr. Budwig began her extensive research on the benefits of flaxseed because of its rich essential fatty acid content known as “linoleic and linolenic”. Dr. Budwig assisted many seriously ill, even those who were given up for terminal by orthodox medical doctors, helping them to regain their health through a simple regimen of flaxseed oil blended with cottage cheese.
Dr. Budwig supplemented her patients’ diets with 2 tablespoons of flaxseed oil combined with 1/4 cup of cottage cheese. Dr. Budwig found that a yellowish-green substance in their blood was replaced with a healthy red pigment, hemoglobin. She also found that the tumors receded and disappeared, anemia was alleviated, and vital energy was regained.
