1. Cottage Cheese
“One cup of cottage cheese contains 25 grams of protein, and a study published in the journal Appetite shows that the satiating effects of cottage cheese are similar to the satiating effects provided by eggs. I love how cottage cheese is a no-cook way to add protein to a variety of different meals and snacks,” says Chelsea Elkin, MS, RD, CDN.
Plus, cottage cheese is one of the best sources of calcium, some experts saying that it can fulfill 8 percent of the daily recommended value (1,200 mg per day for most adults). So, due to its calcium content, consuming cottage cheese regularly can ensure healthy bones and teeth. Other proven benefits of cottage cheese include weight loss, B complex vitamins your body needs to prevent infections, and healthy fats, as well as a reduced risk of breast cancer.
