5. Cottage Cheese
It isn’t surprising that cottage cheese is a firm favourite with body builders. High in protein, vitamins, minerals (especially calcium) and micro-nutrients like selenium, cottage cheese is low in carbohydrates and calories. It’s important to choose low sodium brands for the best health benefits. Cottage cheese can be used in a variety of delicious ways. Mix some with chopped seasonal fruits, nuts and granola to make a delicious, healthy breakfast. Coarsely mash a ripe avocado pear and mix in some cottage cheese and a little piquant sauce to make a tasty guacamole.
