Cottage Cheese Toast Ideas

By Jane Pilanski, Triad to Wellness Intern

One of the newest food trends is an old favorite – toast!  Sweet or savory, toast can be enjoyed as breakfast, lunch, snack, or mini-meal.  One great way to up the nutrition of your toast is to add cottage cheese.  Daisy brand Low-Fat Cottage Cheese has four ingredients and provides 13 grams of Protein (26% of your daily value) per ½ cup serving with only 90 calories per ½ cup serving!  When choosing a bread for your toast, make sure to pick a whole wheat version that’s high in fiber (aim for 5 grams of fiber per slice).  You can of course substitute a gluten free alternative, brands such as Canyon Bakehouse are gluten free and have a high fiber content.  The fiber of the bread combined with the protein of the cottage cheese will be sure to keep you satisfied.  We whipped up a few of our favorite Cottage Cheese Toast ideas!
