Sometimes you just need a little Wacky in your Wednesday and today it was one seriously wacky yum factor!
I was just going about my business scrolling through my newsfeed on Facebook and checking in on various group pages when I see a picture similar to this…
Ewwww WHO EATS THIS?!?! Why would anyone even open their fridge see a cup of Greek yogurt and a carton of cottage cheese and think to themselves “Oooh now that sounds like a totally delish combo”? I mean really? Apparently Brooke of SheSavage, and fellow heavy lifting Body Beast Beastette, thinks it is an “extraordinary” combination. I trust this crazy woman so much when it comes to lifting and getting great results with Body Beast and so I wondered, do I trust her on this too?
Fast forward a week, yes a full week. Seriously it took me that long to be brave enough to put her combo to the test. As she suggested I kept the two separate and did not mix them together in one bowl. A little separation in flavors apparently makes a difference. I paused to take a picture (or delay what could be a terrible, horrible, no good, explosion of flavors gone wrong) and then with my eyes closed, went in for the ……
YUMMIEST EXPERIENCE EVAAAA!
I could not believe what was happening in the land of taste-buds. A perfect combination of textures as well as that sweet and salty thing that I love so much. Maybe I am the only one who will ever consider cottage cheese slightly salty but I do, is that weird? It’s okay if it is weird, I will accept that weirdness.
Soon my bowls of this “magical combination” were empty and while I should have been in mourning, I was almost giddy because I think I have found my healthy substitute for CHEESECAKE! Oh yeah, it is that good!
For those who track their macro nutrients like I do my combination of strawberry Greek yogurt and 1/2 cup of 2% cottage cheese put me at 139 calories, 12 grams of carbs, 2 grams of fat, and 19 grams of protein. Not too shabby, especially since it felt like I was indulging in a most decadent dessert.
Once again I was reminded of just how smart my friend Brooke is, why did I even doubt her? If you are a fan of cottage cheese and a lover of Greek yogurt I highly recommend combining the two. Trust me everyone should experience this wonderful yet wacky yum factor. Mmmmm….so good!
