Eating Healthy for Two
Many thanks to Daisy Brand for sponsoring today’s post but my love for Daisy Cottage Cheese is all my own!
Now that I’m pregnant with my second child, I’m trying to eat lots of clean and natural foods. One of my favorite snacks that’s low in calories but big on taste is my Cottage Cheese on Toast with Avocado and Tomatoes.
This quick and healthy snack is perfect anytime you want to satisfy a hungry tummy. It’s packed with protein, fiber and healthy fats that will keep you going throughout the day. One of my favorite protein sources is Daisy Cottage Cheese. The 2% cottage cheese has 13 grams of protein and only 90 calories per 1/2-cup serving. It’s a great way to enjoy low-fat, 100% natural cottage cheese without giving up the creamy, delicious taste. I also love that Daisy Cottage Cheese is 100% pure! This means there are no additives, preservatives, or added growth hormones in their cottage cheese. When you’re eating clean, 100% pure is the way to go!
The other reason I love this healthy snack is because it of all the layered goodness on top of the cottage cheese. I absolutely love avocados! When I was pregnant with little man I ate one almost every day. I was a little surprised when he was born that he wasn’t a giant avocado! 😉 The tomatoes on top add nice color and they give a sweetness to the whole mixture. A little salt and pepper to bring the whole thing alive and you my dear are set to enjoy!
So the next time you are looking for a quick, healthy snack…think Cottage Cheese on Toast with Avocado and Tomatoes. You won’t be disappointed! Oh, and if you are looking for more healthy snacks with cottage cheese, check out the Daisy Brand website for more great recipes.
What’s your favorite cottage cheese snack?
Cottage Cheese on Toast with Avocado and Tomatoes
Prep Time: 5 minutes Total Time: 5 minutes
- 1 cup cottage cheese (I used Daisy Cottage Cheese 2% low-fat)
- 2 slices of whole wheat bread, toasted
- 1/2 of a ripe avocado, sliced
- 1/2 of a tomato, sliced
- salt and pepper, to taste
Lay your bread slices out and top each slice with 1/2 cup of cottage cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Top the cottage cheese with your sliced avocado and tomatoes. Sprinkle again with just a tiny pinch of salt and pepper. Enjoy!
Ok, I’m usually not a cottage cheese lover, but this looks delicious!

YUMMY!!! I love that it’s so bright and colorful, too! Thanks so much for taking the time to link up with us over at the #HomeMattersParty – we hope to see you again on Friday! Feel free to bring a friend 🙂
I would love to try this! Avocado and tomato clearly go well together but I never thought about with cottage cheese. I bet it is a filling yet light lunch all at the same time.
Never thought of combining these two together. Will have to give it a try. TFS! Visiting from Something to Talk About
