Fuel Your Fancy with Friendship Dairies Cottage Cheese
August 30, 2016 7 Comments
Guess what this waffle has as a main ingredient? Cottage Cheese!
Why did I make it with cottage cheese? Because for 90 calories of cottage cheese, I am fueled by 20 grams of protein to do my toughest (and most rewarding) activity – running.
This is a beautiful photo of me after I ran a 5K. As you can see, I am colored with chalk that was tossed at me as I ran. These “color” runs are all over the nation and I get a kick out of training for them and running them.

Unfortunately, I can’t enter the contest but you can! I would post my crazy running photo. I used cottage cheese in my waffle recipe because cottage cheese is the The Original Superfood.
My waffles are gluten-free, easy to make, and each serving contains 15 grams of protein to satiate me after a long run.
Friendship Dairies cottage cheese is great for dips, spreads, and smoothies. I love to mix cinnamon and raisins with it in a small bowl for a quick snack.
