You are right to choose cottage cheese that doesn't have those things. I'm sure that Trader Joe's has a good, plain yogurt. At least the Trader Joe's around here (Portland, Or. area) have many excellent products. They carry Organic Valley dairy products and many other quality brands. You can make a great yogurt with either organic milk or at least milk that states that they don't give their cows rBHT (hormones).

You are right about Yoplait: it's junk

I am VERY lucky to have a friend who has a cow. I buy a gallon a week from her. It is really fantastic.

I have 2 main sources for commercial foods: A health food store called New Seasons and a co-op that delivers twice a month with no shipping charges. I get my milk and eggs from friends and now that it's the growing season I will be frequenting my favorite local farms for fresh produce so I won't be shopping so much at New Seasons for a while...except for their incredible selection of cheeses and chocolate, geeeeeeee!

Hi Annie,

I bought some cottage cheese today from Trader Joe's because it didn't have sugar or artificial flavors. The things that I saw that IMO would be unclean are- stabilizers (guar gum, soy lecithin, xantham gun, carrageenan, locust bean gum).

I have not been able to find any yogurt that does not have added sugar to it. I usually buy Yoplait. Once the 2 containers that I have are gone, I will not buy any more but I'd like to find another yogurt that doesn't have added sugar and that is clean.

I wish I had the resources to make my own, I'd love to have a pet cow :)

I agree that everyone's idea of "clean" is different and I appreciate that.

Where do you get your products from? I will try "Whole Foods" tomorrow. That store is just way out of the way.

Thank you!

It really depends on what brand or variety of cottage cheese you get. A good quality cottage cheese, as "clean" as you can buy in a store, will have only milk, cultures and possibly added cream and maybe a little salt. It won't have gums, sugars, preservatives or any other unknown stuff. And, of course, certified organic makes it extra "clean".

What did you see in the ingredients of cottage cheese that you thought was unclean?

If you make your own cottage cheese from grass fed cows and raw milk THEN you will have absolutely "clean" cottage cheese. But how many of us can do that?

We all differ here and there on what "clean" is. You have to ask yourself; "What do I want "cleaned" out of my food? And then go with that. For most of us it means, basically, eating food that hasn't been ruined by man by adding toxic things or subtracting nutrients. Some people are bothered by certain things that other people don't worry about. And as we discuss things (like this cottage cheese issue) we all learn a bit more about what is important to us personally.

I don't know where you shop so I don't know what is available to you as far as brands go. Always read the ingredients to be sure of what you are getting

What brands of cottage cheese and yogurt do you all get? Maybe I am not looking at "clean" the right way? I am new to it all and now that I am looking at ingredients I thought some of the ingredients in cottage cheese and yogurt were not clean??

Please share your knowledge.

Thank you!

Lots more awesome recipes on here, I've started making egg salad with cottage cheese, and I made a tuna/cottage cheese/mango wrap last week that was pretty good. Next step, clean polenta lasagna!

My favorite is definitely cottage cheese and strawberries.
A new way I have started using it is to make sauce for casseroles and pastas. Everything calls for canned soup which I don't like using. I mix it with chicken broth and some cornstarch. You can season it appropriately for your casserole. When I make tuna casserole I use juice from pickeld jalapenos and it is really good.

Thanks for that info. So then we need to just lower the sugar; maybe sub with some stevia extract. These little puppies sure look good. Might have to try making some the baking method. Thanks.

Just a thought on the canolis-I'm a pastry chef and I am always experimenting with making pastries healthy. Any dough that can be fried, can be baked. You'll need to form it with something over proof, then spritz it with a healthy oil (no need to soak it, kind of defeats the purpose), oven times will vary depending on how the dough is made, start around 350-375 and see how it does. The more I think of it though-I've never fried canoli shells, we've always baked them.

Today is the next step towards the rest of my life.

I like to add cottage cheese to my smoothies.
First blend the cottage cheese with a little water, milk, yogurt - whatever happens to float my boat at the time I'm making a smoothie.
Then I add protein powder (chocolate!) frozen banana and strawberries.
Makes me think I'm having a banana split without all the bad calories.

WOW! I really regret that workout

Yeah, now that I've looked around the web for these cannoli things I can see the problem. I'm not afraid of fat because I know that fat isn't what makes us fat; not in the general sense anyway. But SUGAR really does make us fat AND unhealthy for sure. The other trouble I see with these scrumptious-looking pastry treats is that the shells are deep fried in oil and THAT is one of the worst things we can do to ourselves. I wonder if there is a way to bake them instead of frying them.

Sugar and fat...LOL Two Cardinal sins. Maybe not unclean in the purity sense, but in the good-for-me sense. I have never heard of a savory canoli. If you have never had one, you must! Get one from a good Italian bakery or restaurant, you have to try the real thing...one won't kill you. My step mother made them homemade....mmm mmm good, but they were off the charts high fat and calorie, everything she cooked was that way. I think they made that Butterton's commercial after her.

Okay, I think I get it. I just looked up canolis and see that they are a sweet treat. So sugar would be the worst thing in them. But boy do they look good! Is there a such thing as a savory canoli rather than a sweet one? Blintzes too can be made without sugar. A tiny drizzle of maple syrup or just fresh fruit might work.

Joyful, I bet you could make those things "clean" just by using fresh, whole, organic ingredients. What is the "unclean" part for you?

Oooh, I love ricotta also! I am on a crazy strict diet for ten days for a medical test....no dairy products (plus a whole lot of other 'nos') just reading about cheese is making me crazy...LOL

Ricotta is what makes canolis so wonderful! And blintzes...not really clean...LOL

Cottage cheese is the curds that have had the whey separated out and usually some moisture added back in like cream, hence: "Creamed Cottage Cheese". Ricotta is made from the whey. The whey is simmered down until nothing is left but a grainy, slightly sweet mass of protein...or something like that. I have made ricotta and it turned out pretty good, sweeter than the store bought kind. Here's a web page that explains it better than I can.

NOTE: Dry curd cottage cheese is available, usually in bags and can be used in place of ricotta in cooking and baking though the texture isn't exactly the same. I mean, if a person needs to get the moisture out of their cottage cheese why waste the cream??

Can someone please explain the difference between cottage cheese and ricotta.
Okay to interchange them because I also have.
If a recipe, lasagna for example, calls for ricotta I buy cottage cheese instead...I nor the family knows the difference.

Yeah, me too, but it has to be important to me..LOL It is funny, because I do not have high blood pressure, not at all, it is that I am very sensitive to sodium. Even before I started eating clean, I quit eating Chinese food altogether (unless I make it myself). I can totally live without cheese, Cottage or any kind, same thing, it has a lot of salt. I make the berries and cottage cheese for my hubs for dinner lots of times, he loves it, and it is so easy to make. Plus it is a step in the right direction for a 'meat and potatoes' guy.

Oh dear; can you find a cottage cheese that doesn't have so much salt in it? Here's an idea. Buy the dry curd cottage cheese that is usually found in the dairy case in a plastic bag. If it has salt in it rinse the curds in a fine mesh strainer with gently running water. Shake well to remove most of the water and then blend the curds in a bowl with whatever you like: milk, cream, half & half, low fat yogurt, coconut milk, etc. I very quickly go into make-it-myself mode when I'm unhappy with the supermarket's offerings.

Hey, I used to mix cottage cheese and applesauce together years ago and also feed it to my kids when they were little...with cinnamon. I'd forgotten about that one. Hmmm, might have to try it again. Thanks for the idea/reminder.

Walnuts are a great addition too.

Try this for breakfast or even a snack (I got it from a Jillian Michaels recipe but modified it for me):

3/4 cup low fat or fat free cottage cheese
16 oz Fiber One vanilla yogurt
4 oz steel cut oats

Mix together and separate into 1/2 cup servings for quick grab and go....serve with fresh fruit of choice. I like to put mine over strawberries and/or blueberries.

I also add cottage cheese to my oatmeal.

Thanks MY_DERIVATIVE! I totally had that backwards, allowing myself more tuna than salmon, and I favour salmon over tuna, so good news for me. So do these servings include canned and fresh?

I'm going to try the berries thing tomorrow, and use them as an extra 'icepack' in my lunch cooler while they unthaw (-:
If I'm hungry when I get home, I'll make aniduck's dip #2, minus the blue cheese and cream cheese. i have most of the ingredients for that around the house and I have carrots in the fridge, so that would make a perfect bedtime snack. Thanks guys! Awesome recipes on here! emoticon

One of my favorite snacks for a long time was cottage cheese with salt and pepper and chopped tomatoes or cherry tomatoes cut in half.

If I wanted a cottage cheese sweet snack I just drizzled maple syrup or honey on it. Haven't done either of those in a long time.

This isn't about cottage cheese but canned tuna and salmon. I was under the impression that as long as the tuna is albacore it was ok and your to eat canned salmon only occasionally and then only pacific salmon. But from what I understand from my_derivatives post it sounds like I got it backwards.
Your wisdom would be much appreciated:)

I get my tuna from Alaska. Yes, it is more expensive but you wouldn't believe the quality. When you open a can it looks like half again as much fish as in a regular store-bought can of tuna. And it's all in one chunk so you really have to dig to get it out! It looks like a slice of a whole fish crammed in as tight as it can get. And the flavor? Oh my, actually tastes like fish. I usually buy a case of 12 and it lasts us 6 mos to a year. (we are only 2 adults here)

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

emoticon You are making me slobber all over the place!! LOL!! These dips sound sooo good, and that Tuna Salad recipe- I am (was) such a huge tuna lover. Do you think I could change the tuna to salmon? I suppose a can a' tuna every now & then wouldn't be so bad- and it is on the lower end of mercury.

Just did a little Googling:

Dip...
1/4 cup cucumber, Diced
1/4 cup green onion, Diced, Use All
1/4 cup radish, Diced
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 Mix the cucumber, green onion, and radishes together then blend in the cottage cheese and sour cream.
2 Add the celery salt and pepper blending all of the ingredients well.
3 Cover and chill.

Another dip:
2 cups cottage cheese
2 -3 tablespoons sour cream
1/4 teaspoon onion, grated
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 ounces blue cheese
1/4 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon chives

1 Mix all ingredients in blender.
2 Use to dip raw vegetables or to dress a salad.
3 Makes 1 pint.

This next one calls for "whipped cottage cheese" but I think you could "whip" it yourself using a food processor
1 (16 ounce) container whipped low fat cottage cheese
1 onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
1 -3 dash hot sauce

1 Combine all and chill.

One more:
(Rapunzel makes organic veggie bouillon cubes and powder)
1 (24 ounce) carton large curd cottage cheese
1/2 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
1/2 garlic clove, sauteed
1 (4 g) envelope beef bouillon
1 pinch pepper
1/3 cup milk

serve with
chips or crackers or assorted fresh vegetables

1 Blend all ingredients until smooth (add a little more milk if a thinner consistency is desired) and chill (about 2 hours).

All the above recipes came from www.familyoven.com

I use it in a few different ways:

* In oatmeal pancakes, i use it as part of the batter

* Cottage cheese salad, sweetcorn, spinach, green peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, avocado.

* Mix with a little greek yoghurt, add fresh fruit and then top with a little muesli or trail mix

I love thawed frozen berries. No sweetener needed. The juice from the berries (unsweetened) makes the cottage cheese taste divine! I like also to top mine with some chopped walnuts (I actually had this for breakfast!!!). Delish and satisfying!

mmm... that sounds delish!! This recipe could use a bit of changing up for some, but YUM!! I think it would make an excellent carrot/snap peas or other veggie dip too.

I mix in fresh or frozen berries and a packet of stevia. It's like eating cheesecake. YUM!

I used to love eating my cottage cheese with dill pickles, but cucumbers dipped in apple cider vinegar is way better!!

I just like mine with any fruit or on a green salad. How about apples and cinnamon, haven't tried it myself but it would be good.

I'm getting tired of just plain cottage cheese. I've tried it with tomatoes and pineapple and didn't care for it that way, any quick-fix ideas? I'm going to try it with eggs to make an egg salad wrap, any other wrap ideas that would be good for work?
