Cottage cheese, fresh pineapple, and bran flakes makes an incredible breakfast.
I buy large curd cottage cheese because I love the texture of the gorgeous, tangy curds. A half cup of cottage cheese is a great base for your morning fruit, and the creamy flavor compliments the bright-and-sweet pineapple just perfectly. Bran flakes add some more fiber, and plenty of crunch. They won’t get soggy quickly, either.
My husband is funny about cottage cheese; he only likes it with non-sweet foods like tomatoes, and that only rarely.
I think it’s a far more versatile food, and I could eat it nearly every day. I grew up eating cottage cheese with canned pears (still love that), and these days I’m likely to top it with anything from fresh sprouts and almonds to cantaloupe cubes, frozen raspberries, edamame, or raw spinach leaves. I like fresh ground black pepper on it, too. Delicious.
I pity all the people having plain Cheerios and milk for breakfast.
