Ingredients For Cottage Cheese Pudding

Cottage cheese

There are so many options when it comes to choosing cottage cheese. You can buy full fat, low fat, or fat free. You can find it made with probiotics to help support your gut health (and ultimately your brain health). It comes in small or large curd. Choose the options that are right for you and be careful to check the ingredients to be sure you know everything that is in it?

Peanut Butter Powder

Peanut butter powder is high in protein with most of the fat removed. It is a great option because it does not have the stickiness and fat of traditional peanut butter. Peanut flour is another great option and can be found on Amazon.

Fruit Puree

Choose the fruit of your choice to mix in. If you start with whole fruit throw it in the blender to puree when you add the cottage cheese. Jam, jelly, or canned fruit all work well.

Fruit puree or jam is often easy to find and blends well. Your favorite fruit will likely go very well with this recipe.

Why Protein?

Protein is integral to our health for so many reasons. It helps with the immune system, healing from injury or surgery, keeping our muscles strong, and can even help with either weight loss or gain.

Your body needs protein so that it can make new proteins. These proteins are used for making your hormones, enzymes so other body functions can happen, transporting nutrients through your blood stream, storing needed nutrients, and keeping your immune system strong.

It also is necessary so you can continue to make healthy DNA and keeps your fluid in your blood stream (we dont want it to seep out!)

You need to eat a variety of foods in order to get adequate protein. Animal sources like meat, eggs, dairy and fish are complete proteins. This means you don’t need to add anything to get all the amino acids (building blocks of protein) for staying healthy.

Plant proteins are incomplete (but still good). This means you need to eat multiple different plants together in order to get all the amino acids. A few examples are beans with rice, garbanzo beans and tahini (hummus), PB & bread.

Conclusion

Enjoy this fantastic recipes and adapt it to your liking. It will help you get to your daily protein goals, can help with stopping weight loss, and tastes good too!
