Just tried for the first time to eat cottage cheese , and it made me almost puke :(

Is there any way how you can learn to eat it , since it is a cheap and good proteine source ?

If anybody had the same problem and can give me some usefull info , i would apreciate it very much.

Keep on lifting !!!

I had the same problem. I still do not love it, but let me tell you, for me anyway, brand makes a difference. I tried the store brand and it was terrible. I then tried Breakstone's small curd and it's quite tolerable. Some people here also add stuff to it. Search for cottage cheese on the forum and I'm sure you can find some ideas.

Luckily I like all cottage cheese. But I can definetly vouch that brand makes a huge difference, some taste WAAAAY better than others. Also try sprinkling some pepper on it, that seems to be a favorite around here.

I like it straight from the container mostly, but brands do make a huge difference. Also the fat content makes a difference in taste (I like 1% fat flavor best).

When I feel like it, I'll eat it with:
-Pasta (Kaluski or spagetti and cottage cheese is really good)
-Fruit
-in a tortilla

Cut up some fruit and eat it with it... I use a banana. Also, get a piece of white bread take a bite of the cottage cheese then a bite of the bread, and it actually tastes tolerable if not good. I can't stand the stuff on its own so try eating it with something... something sweet helps quite a bit.

If you can get it, try the Friendship Dairies brand. It's the only cottage cheese I will eat. All others taste horrible to me.

Yep, brand is important as well as fat content - 1%. My wife eats it with brown sugar :tutut: My daughter calls it lumpy cheese - yuck. I love it just plain.

So do a lot of people here really eat cottage cheese? I suppose I could start eating it if it was worth it.

Comments?

What exactly is cottage cheese??? Is it ricotta cheese?

No, cottage cheese is exactly that...cottage cheese. If you're at a grocery store, it's probably grouped with the milk, creamer and stuff.

Milk is great too, but the special thing about cottage cheese is that you get more protein than milk and less sugar.

From what I've learned about yogurt I have come up with an interesting theory:

Lactaid brand milk contains an enzyme to break down all of the lactose (sugar) and they don't add corn syrup or anything else to it. So, Lactaid milk probably has a lot less sugar than the label reads. I posted something called the Yogurt Exception. If I am wrong, as I usually am, I'm sorry.

I had the same experience. I took a big scoop and was very, very close to puking. Anyway, that mixing it in yogurt sounds like a good idea.

It is possible that that article is correct. However, since it was basically written, it seems, by the yogurt company, I would want to see more studies on that.

I just wanted to make a correction. when the lactase enzyme is added lactose is broken down into glucose and galactose. the simple sugar content of the milk does not change.

I've never seen a reduced sugar milk in the US (imagine that !). they will probably come out with a new milk with additonal sugars added for all the fat a$$es ! lol

Davy...I couldn't eat it either when I first tried it many moons ago. I would first go with the regular version which I think is 4% milkfat. then go from the 4% to the 2% then you should be able to make the jump to fat free. there are definetly differences in taste between brands..it will take some trial and error

Yeah, I hated it at first but as time went on I learned to tolerate it. I just get this really small tupperware bowl and put a cup of cottage cheese in it and eat it with this little baby spoon I have. I can't just eat it out of the tub it comes in or chow down with it all on a big plate. I'm eating it as we speak with diced up apples... cottage cheese with fruit is the way to go. Strawberries, apple, banana, pineapple... really anything works well.
