Protein Packed Cottage Cheese & Berries

Breakfast High Protein Recipes

One of my favorite breakfast items is a simple bowl of cottage cheese and blueberries. Its a snap to whip up and tastes delicious! I love the combination of tart and sweet berries with the mild, creamy cottage cheese.

Besides the taste, this simple meal has a lot to offer nutritionally. This low carb dish really packs in the protein and antioxidants. The high protein helps to keep me full without being sluggish like a heavier breakfast would. And did you know that berries are lower on sugar than most fruits?

Nutrition

Calories: 185          Carbs: 18          Protein: 13          Fat: 8          Fiber: 3

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c Blueberries
  • 1/2 c  4% Cottage Cheese
  • 1 Tbsp Crushed Pecans or Slivered Almonds

 

Place all your ingredients in a bowl and enjoy! This is as easy as cereal but so much better for you! This can easily be doubled and not break the calorie bank. Plus, I use full fat cottage cheese but that could easily be switched out to reduce calories and fat.

Berries and Cream

Until next time!
