Healthy Snacking : Cottage Cheese Pineapple with Cashew
Healthy Snack Ideas? It's hard because when it comes to food the sweeter it is the better,the saltier it taste the yummier it is for me. I even dip my strawberries in salt which drive my husband crazy of course.So when it comes to healthy snacking,I am very bad. When my husband introduced me to Cottage Cheese with Pineapple and Cashew,I was at first hesitant cause I am not a big fan of Cheeses of any kind. But when I tasted this recipe,I got so hooked I forgot my cravings for sweet and salty snacks.The secret is the pineapple,the sweet and tart flavor of it leaves a happy taste in you mouth. And the crunchiness of cashew adds contrast to it's taste,even if you use unsalted raw cashew which I do,it'll satisfy your cravings for salt. You can try Strawberries also, to make you appreciate it's taste more,It is more appealing to kids also. My kids love it,my husband most. We like the low fat,2% milk fat compare to non fat or regular cottage cheese because it tasted much better if you mix it with the cut up fruits. We also like to use raw unsalted cashew cause it is less processed and Dole pineapple slices in 100% pineapple juice because they are sweeter. But you can use whatever brand you like,or any of your choice of course. The good thing too about this recipe is how easy it is to make it,just mix it all together.
