Healthy Snack Idea: Fruit, Cottage Cheese and Granola Bowl

Pin This Post

Snacking healthy always seems like a daunting task doesn’t it?  When most people think of snacks, chips, cookies and ice cream come to mind.  I like to change that way to thinking and determine snacks as a small meal in between larger meals to keep you nourished and the other things more as treats to enjoy on occasion.

So what constitutes a healthy snack?  I always aim for a balance of protein and fiber as well as a little healthy fat to keep me feeling satisfied until my next meal time.

This has been something I’ve been enjoying recently and offers a nice change from my usual choice of yogurt.  Cottage cheese is a fantastic source of protein and is low in fat and calories.  I like to add a few shakes of cinnamon to it to give it a sweet kick.  Granola mixes well into cottage cheese, much like yogurt and the fruit toppings are completely up to you!

If you’re growing tired of yogurt, give cottage cheese a try!

Enjoy!
