I've just recently tapped into dairy again thanks to discovering Halona Supernatural Organic Whole Milk Cottage Cheese that is non-homogenized, grass-fed, and contains no stabilizers, plus it has cream on top. It is absolutely the best tasting and satisfying cottage cheese I've ever had.
So, this is what I have been doing, it's super simple. I'll pick up any seasonal fruit, it's July right now so I'm grabbing stone fruits like apricots, peaches or nectarines, or berries...slicing them and adding them to a bowl with a cup of cottage cheese.
Next, I'll sprinkle a teaspoon each of chia and flax seed, ground if possible. These guys are great for digestion and balancing hormones. Drizzle some bee pollen for protein, amino acids and another hormone balancer. Then, I like to add chopped walnuts for nourishing brain properties they have to offer. Every once and while I like to add cacao nibs, because why not? They are full of magnesium and give us the endorphin kick. Lastly, I drizzle raw local honey for sweetness. The combination is delightful.
- 1 cup of cottage cheese
- 1 small fruit, chopped or 1/2 a cup of berries
- 1 teaspoon each of flax or chia seed or 1 tbsp. of flax OR chia, ground preferably
- 1 teaspoon of bee pollen
- 1 tablespoon of chopped walnuts
- a drizzle of raw local honey
- optional* 1 teaspoon of raw cacao nibs
Note* A delicious and chewy alternative to fresh fruit are flame raisins. They are larger and a little tangier than regular raisin.
