besides cottage cheese, what else has a good source of casein? and if cottage cheese is the only/best way than i need a good way to take it? i can't eat it plain. Can you make a protein shake out of it?

Milk or really any dairy. You can also buy it in powdered form. I've never tried the CC in a shake but i've seen it before. I eat it plain or w/ fruit.

if its 100% WHEY then theres no casein. Some protein powders (like Nitrean) have a combination.

I buy this thing called Micellar Casein and its ****ING EXPENSIVE ***T !!!!!!

14 bucks per one pound ! If I am wasting my money buying 100% Micellar protein then someone tell me!

Maybe a mix like a 50%/50% mix of Micellar and some other type of protein.

I remember trying to figure out how much per g/protein casein costs if you eat cottage cheese vs. casein powders...and its pretty much the same (around 3.5 cents/g).
Thing is...sometimes safeway has the 2lb tubs of cottage cheese for 2.5 dollars each...then cottage cheese is cheaper by about a cent/g protein.

I think Sam's or COSTCO might skew that a little further in favor of cottage chesse. But you'd have to be prepared to eat it every night. 5 lbs outlasts the expiration if you don't.

A tbsp or two of jam helps the cottage cheese go down!

I've only seen costco sell these 3 lb tubs for 4.99. Is there a 5 lb one?

I but 2-3 3lb tubs of CC from costco at a time. At a whole one yesterday afternoon for my 3 afternoon meals. 2 cups at a time at 4/7/9.

That may have been Sam's where I got the 5lb. And that was a while back. You may want to ask the next time you're in Costco. They may be able to bring them in for you.

I make delightfull shakes with Cottage Cheese.

The essentials:

1) Cottage Cheese
2) Milk or Soymilk
3) Something that tates good preferably fruity ie: juice, jam, yogourt, frozen yogourt

I have had these taste just like a milkshake. Especially when cutting it's absolute heaven. You can throw in ice cubes as well.

Toss a little italian dressing in there...it helps a lot.

Not in the shake. Just cottage cheese with Italian dressing.
