At 80 calories, 2 grams of fat and 5 grams of fiber this is a great product! In weight watching terms it is 1 pt versus 2 (for other light cottage cheese products) for a 1/2 cup serving. Love it with fresh pineapple or blueberries!

Cottage cheese is low in fat and carbs & very high in protein. Cottage Cheese with fruit, Cottage Cheese on a bed of lettuce, Cottage Cheese in salad with flaxseeds, cottage cheese with chopped oinion and parsley flakes, cottage cheese w/matchstick carrots It's a great diet food. Lots of Calcium and Protein just chose the low fat version.
High fiber bars are my secret weapon to not feeling deprived. I like Fiber One and Fiber Plus- both have 9 grams fiber! About 130 cal. Eating Right (from Safeway) has a nice 100 cal nutrition bar too. I use for breakfast along with fruit and a little cottage cheese. Or I use for a snack. 250
For a quick breakfast, I mix together a small serving of fat-free cottage cheese or plain yogurt with high-fiber cereal, a few seeds or nuts, & fruit (either to the mix or on the side.) Because I don't use milk, the cereal stays crunchy. I never use the same mixture, but for example, this morning I had 50 gr cot cheese with 10 gr Fiber One, 20 gr Flax Plus Pumpkin cereal, & 10 gr pepitas (pumpkin seeds) for a total of 202 calories....

...26 gr carbs, 8 fat,12 protein, 7 gr fiber, plus I ate half a banana adding about 55 calories. Choose a cereal with more or less fat, fiber, etc & add more or less cottage cheese or yogurt to make your own best mix. Fruit & cereal add sweetness to plain yogurt. Use Greek for more protein.
