Tried cottage cheese for the first time - help me jazz it up



Recommended Posts

I don't like it, but I like it better than greek yogurt (BTW, I like Dannon regular or lite yogurt). Both are basically pretty gross to me.

Phase 3. No veggies or fruit yet. What can I do with this cottage cheese since I seem to tolerate it. Anything to make it more bearable?

I'm not a fan of cottage cheese, but I'm forcing myself to eat it due to the nutritional value. Some people put salt and/or pepper on it. It didn't work for me, but give it a try.

Splenda, cinnamon, a few drops of vanillla extract. Splenda and a bit of unsweetened cocoa powder, maybe a dash of cinnamon if you like. Other extracts that you like. Torani or other sugar-free syrups -- a spoon at a time until you reach the intensity that suits your tastebuds. Savory, too -- mix in herbs and seasonings that you like.

Are unsweetened applesauce and pureeed baby fruits off the table, too? Any would help the cottage.

Eons ago I came to think of cottage cheeese as something to eat when I'm sick. Since surgery, though, I occasionally mix it with the applesauce as a snack.< /p> Edited by WLSResources/ClothingExch

For more savory - you can add a little pepper to it. Once you can add other items - some chopped herbs, a little chopped Tomato or chopped olive - keep in mind this all adds calories and carbs.

While on purees, I would occasionally add a teaspoon of unsweetened applesauce or no sugar added jam (again will add calories and carbs still). Once I could have soft fruit, I tried some sugar free diced peaches with it but then I didn't tolerate those well - looked at the label and the peaches had Monkfruit sweetener which didn't agree with me at all.

I like it with a little bit of garlic salt (California blend with a little parsley), or with some dried dill.

I love it. Sometimes I add salsa to it.

Note to self: I don't have to take this day all at once but rather one step, one breath and one moment at a time. I am only one person.

If you can't do chunky fruit yet, you could try a little lite applesauce or jam mixed in. Whatever seasoning you like for savory. Good luck!!

Mix in:

tzatziki sauce

picante sauce or salsa

an herb blend or Soup mix (make it like a dip)

cracked black pepper --- why no fruits and vegetables? Fresh sliced Tomato, cottage cheese, and black pepper is delicious in the summer

lowfat salad dressing

fresh herbs

Make a salad out of it by adding salad toppings

What great ideas. I will try some. Now that I'm back at work I can't do my morning egg. I hate reheated eggs.

I'm so jealous when I see others have vegetables and fruit so early on. I have to wait until phase 4 which is quite a few weeks away.

Add chopped smoked salmon - delicious.

I put sliced peaches "no sugar added" from the can on my small curd cottage cheese. When both items are cold, it almost tastes like ice cream. (I said almost.) But it's a good way to eat it and get some sweetness. Maybe add a dash of cinammon. Bon appetit.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
