What goes well with cottage cheese?
Cottage cheese is a bodybuilders best friend when it comes to midnight snacking. It is the perfect high protein meal to have late at night before bedtime. It’s high casein content allows it to slow down the absorption of protein once it enters your body enabling it to feed your body for extended periods throughout the night.
I don’t mind the taste of cottage cheese on it’s own, but some dislike it. So for those of you in need of some help, here are a few tips on combinations that work well with cottage cheese.
Cottage cheese with fruit
My personal favourite is a handful of grapes, although I also enjoy raspberries when in season, chopped oranges or pineapple.
Cottage cheese mixed with low fat flavoured yogurt
Low fat flavoured yogurt works really well with cottage cheese. Simply choose your favourite flavour and mix a tablespoon or two into your cottage cheese. I have found that it not only improves the flavour, but the texture also becomes more smooth and palatable too.
A dollop of peanut butter with cottage cheese
Another good option is a spoonful of natural peanut butter on top of your cottage cheese. The taste seems to work well, but not only that, peanut butter contains healthy fats that are essential to an all round diet and the extra calories can prove beneficial to bodybuilders looking to bulk up.
Sugar free jelly sachet with cottage cheese
Sugar free jelly sachets are a great way to add a touch of exoticness to cottage cheese. They come in many different flavours and work really well if the powder is mixed through a bowl of cottage cheese with a splash of milk.
Hot chocolate sachets and cottage cheese
The last option is hot chocolate sachets. A similar method as the sugar free jelly above, just choose your flavour and mix into the cottage cheese with a splash of milk.
