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!

  1. This looks so simple but delicious. Thank you for sharing and joining our Oh My Heartsie Girl Wordless Wednesday Link Party.. Have a great day, co-host Evija @Fromevijawithlove

  2. 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.
