    Substitute for Cottage Cheese


    Looking for a good substitute for cottage cheese. I'm not a very big fan of it. When I do it its only like 2 or 3 days then I can stomach it anymore... My new diet plan calls for but I can't do it everyday.

    You know I what I find tastes the best with cottage cheese? Just straight up pineapple. I know its really high GI, but it's just so good. I can stomach cottage cheese plain, but having it with pineapple is like my treat for the day. if I really feel like spoiling myself I add in some vanilla yogurt. mmmmmmm.... I am drooling. But seriously Cottage Cheese is perfect to eat before you go to bed, and I dont mind the extra 200 high GI cals from the pineapple.... besides you willl be fasting for the next 8-9 hours.

    Pineapple has a moderate GI actually and will help you to digest the protein more efficiently.

    The GI of most fruits is actually on the low or moderate side. I think that the GI for pineapple is in the high 50's or low 60's.

    I eat cottage cheese with a bagel that I heat up in the microwave. Use the cottage cheese as sort of a dip. The difference in temperatures between the cold cottage cheese and the warm bagel is nice. Also try adding Mrs. Dash to the cottage cheese when using it this way. Tastes good, plus it will give you some variety as there 10+ types of Mrs. Dash and similar products if you look hard enough.

    I'm learning a lot.. did not know it about the pineapple. Tried pineapple today.. and it was great.. I had cup of cottage cheese and 1/4 of pineapple. One thing I found out was, for me to eat the cottage cheese I must keep it ice cold...

    Be sure you try different brands, and the more expensive brands are not always better. Some kinds are sort of dry and clumply, others are sort of like a chili soup in terms of viscosity. I prefer the more moist kinds of cottage cheese. I have personally tried Kroger Brand (midwest), Stop and Shop Brand (northeast) and Hood cottage cheese (national, I believe) and they are all of this variety. I also prefer 1 or 2% fat to the fat free. Cheeses are one of the cases where fat-free is just nasty in most situations. I say just build that type of fat into your diet and enjoy your food versus punishing yourself by eating it and not really cutting all that much fat.

    How's everyone else's cottage cheese for sodium content? I was blown away by how much salt the big local dairy puts in its cottage cheese.

    was going to suggest Fromage Frais, 25-30% protein and carbs around 8%. With Yogs/Fromage frais you gotta watch the sugar content i.e. Carbs 8g but 6g sugars etc.

    Yep, Bromeline is a very prominent enzym in Pineapple, great for digestion and immunity.

    lol. I tried this and almost gagged on the first taste. I am glad it works for you though. I wish I liked it so I could get that double dose of protein all in one meal. I am not trying to discourage anyone from trying it. I just thought it was funny how I hated it so much and you actually like it

    I am lucky cause I enjoy cottage cheese just plain. Sometimes with a little pepper or some banana peppers.

    Well there you go. I turn it into a sort of chocolate pudding, and you turn it into a salsa mix. Different strokes.

    Well, isn't 'Greek Yogurt' goat cheese?

    I thought most greek dairy products were all Goat derivatives. Sort of like those Goat meat shishkabobs they sell all over Europe because they deep sixed all their meat cows, and most of their dairy cows.

    I think the most curious thing about all the dairy consumption is all the hormones they give the cows. I try to stay away from the hormonal dairy products, because I heard somewhere that the estrogen related non-sense in there was somehow causing men to be less agressive. Although really there was a study about how all the hormones from fertilizers and every other contamination (even pesticides) was causing American males to have lower and lower Mr. T levels. The biggest Mr. T's being from males studied in the 60's and 70's. Declining ever since.

    Or maybe it was the 'love' revolution....

    Who knows, I'm just fishing at this point.
