Red Pepper Boats with Cottage Cheese

5 Minutes

super easy


A great snack morning, noon or night, these Red Pepper Boats take less than 2 minutes to put together. They’re not fancy or exciting but they are consistent, which is what most people these days are looking for – myself included. So, give these a try and play around with other vegetables, like carrots, celery and cucumbers. 

Cottage cheese is a great source of protein, B vitamins and healthy fats. It also offers a decent amount of calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc and selenium, all of which help support optimal bodily functions. My favorite brand is Good Culture Organic Low-Fat, which offers 14 grams of protein per serving and helps to keep me full between meals.
