Protein Packed Breakfast Parfait

I have to admit it. I never eat cottage cheese. It’s a texture thing. I have all the intentions to eat healthy. I’ll purchase a carton of cottage cheese, peel back the lid and….nope. I can’t eat it!

My breakfast routine is constantly in a rut because I can never stomach any recipe with cottage cheese. So when I heard about Nordica’s Smooth Cottage Cheese, yes SMOOTH, I ran to my local grocery store to pick some up. My sweet tooth rejoiced when I saw the delicious flavours that Nordica Smooth Cottage Cheese came in: Vanilla BeanSalted Caramel and Lemon (and yes, I bought all three).

What’s great is that Nordica Smooth Cottage Cheese has all the benefits of regular cottage cheese, without the lumpy texture so people like me can get reap the health benefits of regular cottage cheese without the lumps.

My favourite way to enjoy Nordica Smooth Cottage Cheese is in a breakfast parfait. Nordica Smooth Cottage Cheese packs in 25% more protein than leading Greek yogurts and is a great source of calcium, so its a no-brainer breakfast choice to fuel your morning.

I add some antioxidant-loaded berries and healthy seeds like sunflower and chia and this nutrient-rich breakfast has me going until lunchtime. Plus, each serving has only 110 calories so it truly is a guilt-free enhancement to your breakfast favourites like smoothies and muffins. Since Nordica Smooth Cottage Cheese comes in 100g cups you can enjoy anytime, day or night!
