Upgrade your toast game with this dynamic and delicious cottage cheese toast

Most people today have their minds made up about cottage cheese. They don’t like the texture, the taste, they’re dairy-free or simply cheese-adverse. Whatever your reasoning, I totally get it. Having said that, I write this today as a confident convert and this cheese toast is largely the reason why! Though admittedly a rather polarizing ingredient, the right kind of cottage cheese can be part of a healthy, balanced and satisfying diet. It’s high in protein, low in fat and made of very few, simple ingredients. It’s also incredibly versatile, which means it can be sweet or savory depending on what you pair it with.

So, perhaps it’s time to revaluate our relationship with the low-fat 90’s diet food?

If you look beyond the lumps, bumps and surprisingly tart flavor, you will find a protein-packed cheese that is versatile, flavorful and extremely satisfying. It’s arguably the healthiest cheese you can eat today and a great option when you’re pressed for time.

Why You’ll Love It 

Cottage cheese is a high protein, low calorie food. 1 cup has approximately 23 grams of protein and only 180 calories. So, adding cottage cheese into your diet can help you stay fuller for longer on less calories, which may help with weight loss and weight management. Just remember to get plain cottage cheese and not a flavored variation, which will typically bring added and unnecessary sugars

It’s great for gut health and immune function. A growing number of cottage cheese brands today contain live and active cultures (aka probiotics) 

Cottage cheese toast is easy to make and incredibly versatile

Play around with other toppings, like avocado and sliced radishes; sliced strawberries and basil; roasted broccoli, olive oil and lemon zest; sautéed kale and a fried egg; fresh tomato, basil and olive oil; smoked salmon, red onions and capers
