Snacktime: Cottage Cheese and Fresh Fruit

I've been trying to amp up my protein intake lately, and one of my new favorite desserts is a small bowlful of cottage cheese with fresh fruit. Cottage cheese is totally grandpa-food (and yes, it's definitely not quite as satisfying as a ginormous slice of cake), but I'm okay with that. Each half-cup serving of low-fat cottage cheese has 90 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 6 grams of carbohydrates, and 12 grams of protein. 


  1. I recently re-started eating cottage cheese again - primarily because I like it and I needed to increase my protein and fat intake (I'm on the full fat dairy bandwagon, yay!). Totally not grandpa food. Okay, maybe. It always reminds me of those old-timey "diet plates", that came with an anemic plain chicken breast, cottage cheese, and an underripe tomato.
