Let's talk about the original Superfood. Do you know what I'm talking about? It's cottage cheese! Friendship Dairies has been making cottage cheese since 1917. Friendship Dairies cottage cheese is super because it's high in protein (1% cottage cheese has 15 grams per serving). It's uber versatile and can be mixed with just about anything. Cottage cheese is also great anytime of day and keeps you energized throughout.
Friendship Dairies has created a fun Superfood Generator to help you make the best combination of cottage cheese and mix-ins. When you go to the website you simply pick your favorite type of cottage cheese and then choose up to three mix-ins. They have fruits, veggies, spices, sweets, crunchy items, and even grains to add to the cottage cheese. It's a great way to find a new superfood super snack.
After choosing your cottage cheese and the mix-ins simply click the done button and you'll get a summary telling you how many grams of protein are in your snack as well as any added benefits you'll receive from the mix-ins you chose. For example it may tell you it's heart healthy, has added fiber, or antioxidants. Whatever you choose, it's really fun to make your own combination! Make sure you try the Superfood Generator.
Did you try it yet? If not I have even more incentive for you to give it a try! When you try the Superfood Generator, add your mix-ins, and get a summary, you can then enter to win The Super-Duper Totally Fantastic Superfood Mix-in Sweepstakes! (NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.

If you like your cottage cheese with fruit, I created a triple berry cottage cheese mix-in. It includes Friendship Dairies 1% Lowfat Whipped Cottage Cheese, strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries. It has 15 grams of protein, contains antioxidants, and contains vitamin C.
If savory is more your style, try tasty cottage cheese with Friendship Dairies 1% Lowfat Cottage Cheese, chopped bell pepper, scallions, and chives. It has 15 grams of protein, antioxidants, vitamin A, and vitamin C.
Finally, if you want something a little different try Friendship Dairies 2% Pot Style Cottage Cheese with pineapple, chia seeds, and honey. It has 14 grams of protein, antioxidants, vitamin C, and omega 3 fatty acids.
All three of these combinations are awesome but if you want to make your own go to Friendship Dairies Superfood Generator, make your own combination, and then enter the sweepstakes.
I didn't realize cottage cheese was the "original super food." What a fun contest!
That looks like something I'd like to try. A super healthy choice.
