    As long as it doesn't come from between your toes after a week without a shower, it should be ok.

    If you are not lactose intolerant and can eat dairy products, it is good for you. I forgot the reasons why it is not good to eat too much dairy. Cottage cheese or yogurt is good.

    Fruit on top makes cottage cheese taste much better by far. Apples or plums cut up on top are good. Raspberries, strawberries, blackberries. Blueberries by themselves are super good for you but somehow are not strong in flavor to overpower the cottage cheese. You can buy bags of frozen berries and mixtures of berries, too. Eat it frozen on top, or thaw it a little to bring out the flavor and make a little sauce.

    I eat 3/4 cottage cheese, small handful of almonds and fruit on top before I go to bed. Cottage cheese is mostly casein protein, which takes a long time to digest, gives you protein longer through the night.

    Fiddle around with different brands and types and fat levels of cottage cheese before you decide you don't like it. I grew up with it and have several ways to prep it. Makes a simple breakfast or lunch VERY quickly.

    Never tried it, nor will I ever try it lol.
    But yea, it's not bad for you. High source of protein if that's what you are looking for. Though, if you really don't like it, I say just leave it alone lol. It's not so good for you that you should have to choke it down icon_smile.gif

    I love the taste of cottage cheese. It's bleu cheese (and other bitter or sour cheeses) I can't stand. Yeccchh...they taste like rot.

    But, back to you...if you don't like the taste, don't eat it.

    And, what's the reason for switching to "natural" protein? Because, for the record, the protein (whey, egg, etc.) you get in powder form is totally natural.

    Knudsen low fat cottage cheese is my favorite. This is the best one, IMO.

    Nasty slimy cottage cheese aside, this is a good way to go. I can't think of any adult who'd prefer flavorless mush over a well-prepared meal.

    Natural protein is great. Definitely better than powders. Getting it from animal sources is better than plant sources like beans. Dairy isn't as good as meat; however, since it can block absorption of other beneficial nutrients and a lot of people are lactose intolerant.

    However, it's all a sliding scale. Cottage cheese is definitely a better source of protein than powders, which are better than plants depending on their ingredients.

    The protein in cottage cheese is the same protein in my (whey) protein container. One is not "more natural" than the other. It's missing the water, which I add, and includes other chemicals for absorption. One thing I don't get from my cottage-cheese-free protein powder: the cheese. Yeah, the stuff that clogs arteries.

    Yum! Like a few people have said, it's a good slow releasing protein for the time you're asleep. That or casein protein (same thing) except C.C. is way cheaper.

    haha i love bleu cheese

    i can stomach it, but it's a little on the salty side for my tastes. i eat a half cup before i sleep


    and i have no idea why i want to eat less powder protein. it might be because the cholesterol content is so high. but my cholesterol is pretty low so i dont know.

    that sounds good. when I eat my cottage cheese, i hold my breath, grab a spoonful, and just swallow. then I shiver.

    i like crumbled bleu cheese on some iceberg lettuce with diced tomates, bacon bits, chopped beets, and toasted almonds. that's the best. my mouth is watering

    There are too many good tings out there to eat to force yourself to eat something you do not enjoy. There are so many good things to eat out there.

    However, if you want to continue to try cottage cheese, try it with fruit as a lot of the other guys have mentioned.

    About your salad with the ice berg lettuce. Try using fresh spring greens, or romaine. Better for you and more flavor.

    One cup of iceberg lettuce:

    8.0 calories
    0.5 gram protein
    0.7 gram fiber
    10 milligrams calcium
    78 milligrams potassium
    1.5 millgrams vitamin C
    16 micrograms folate
    13.3 micrograms of vitamin K
    164 micrograms beta carotene
    152 micrograms of lutein + zeaxanthin

    One cup of romaine lettuce has:

    8.0 calories
    0.58 gram protein
    1.0 gram fiber
    16 milligrams calcium
    116 milligrams potassium
    11.3 milligrams vitamin C
    64 micrograms folate
    48.2 micrograms vitamin K
    1637 micrograms beta carotene
    1,087 micrograms of lutein + zeaxanthin.

    A salad I like is: watercress, a little spring greens mixed, thin sliced apple, crushed pralines, raspberries, crumbled bleu cheese drizzled with balsamic vinegar.
