Cooking for the week: Cottage Cheese, Blueberries and Almonds Breakfast

cottagecheeseblueberry

One reason I like cottage cheese is that, like its sibling Greek yogurt, it's a high(er) protein milk product I can eat while cutting weight. That and the fact that it's rather delicious makes cottage cheese a healthy food option for those who tolerate dairy!

Here's an easy breakfast recipe - no "cooking" was involved, just mixing and portioning out. Scroll through the photos below for a closer look at the ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 5 cups (or 2-32oz containers) low fat cottage cheese, 2% milkfat (pastured-raised, organic if possible)
  • 5 cups blueberries
  • 5 ounces (or 1 and 1/4 cups) almond slivers
  • Cinnamon to taste

Recipe makes 5 mason jars (~14oz) at 1 jar per meal

  1. Measure out 1 cup of blueberries, 1 cup of cottage cheese, 1 oz of almond slivers
  2. Put all the contents in a jar. I recommend putting the almonds on top so they don't get soggy 
  3. Dust top with cinnamon to taste
