I am a big fan of homemade cottage cheese!! Why? First of all, you don’t have to prepare anything. If you get hungry you just open the lid and start eating! I also love it because it is high in casein protein and therefore keeps you full but doesn’t have a lot of fat.
But why is cottage cheese good for you and what is it? I don’t want to bore you with all the details about the production of this protein-bomb. So let’s keep it simple and let’s just say it’s a cheese curd product and you usually find it between the yogurt and the chocolate milk in the supermarket. 🙂
Like most of the other products in our modern world, it comes as either no-fat, low-fat or regular-fat variation. The important thing to know here is that most of the low-fat cottage cheeses contain added sugar.
This is because low-fat products, in general, lose a lot of their taste (fat is a flavor carrier) and to fight the occurring tastelessness the sugar comes into play. So make sure you take a look at the list of ingredients before you decide for a certain brand.
