No-cook high-protein post-workout snack

I’ve got an updated version of an old-school recipe that is PERFECT for your post-workout snack… or any time you’re craving a salty-sweet snack to fill you up! It’s packed with protein, fiber, calcium, vitamin D, antioxidants, and, depending on your ingredients, it can even contain probiotics for your gut and immune system.

DRUMROLL… it’s cottage cheese with berries! 🎉

Cottage cheese’s popularity has fallen by the wayside over the years, which is a shame because it actually has a LOT of benefits for you. Plus, it couldn’t be any simpler! The key is to start with a good cottage cheese. Here are some tips:

TIP 1: Look for cottage cheese that says “probiotics” and/or “live and active cultures” on the label, for maximum gut benefits.

TIP 2: If possible, choose an organic cottage cheese.

TIP 3: Following a plant-based diet? Choose a plant-based cottage cheese — there are several brands on the market now.

Cottage Cheese & Berries

(serves 1)

  • ½ cup (115 grams) low-fat cottage cheese

  • ½ cup (75 grams) berries of choice: raspberries, sliced strawberries, blueberries, etc.

  • 1 drop of pure vanilla extract

  • Optional: ½ to 1 tsp honey or maple syrup

Mix all the ingredients together and serve.

You can also make up a batch of them ahead of time — simply portion your cottage cheese & berries into reusable containers so they are ready to grab & go.
