Snack Cottage Cheese

Rate Your Plate: Snack Cottage Cheese

Snacks should be thought of as "mini meals" not "treats". Use snacks as an opportunity to get in another fruit, vegetable or dairy serving (since we can lack those at main meals). 

A balanced snack will provide 2-3 different check marks. Here I snagged 2 (but 3,ha). 

☑️ Protein (indirectly because cottage cheese is very rich in protein) 
 Fruit with the cup of grapes. 
 Dairy with the cottage cheese. 

Don't have a wimpy snack of just fruit or just yogurt or just something out of the vending machine. Rate your snacks to make them count.
