COTTAGE CHEESE BOWLS 6 WAYS
One factor that can significantly impact ingredient prices is food trends. It all comes down to the laws of supply-demand. The cost of food will drop if there is a low demand but stable supply. What food isn’t trendy right now? Cottage cheese. Although it may not be a very popular food, it is versatile and a great affordable protein source. It’s something I want to make popular. These Cottage Cheese Breakfast Bowls are meal prep-friendly.
HOW TO PREPARE YOUR COTTAGE CHEESE BREAKFAST BOWLS
Each of the six flavours I used in the photos was made by me. However, you will get the most value for your time and money if four different flavours are prepared at once. You don’t need to purchase multiple ingredients or have leftover ingredients such as a half banana, cucumber, or an apple. You can make multiple bowls with the entire piece of fruit.
You can chop the banana and apple fresh each day if you are concerned about getting brown. I prefer to do it all at once and not worry about its appearance later. Brown doesn’t necessarily mean that the animal has been spoilt, but it does indicate that it has been exposed to oxygen.

For approximately four days, prepared cottage cheese breakfast bowls can be kept in the refrigerator.
What MEAL PREP CONTAINS DO YOU USE??
I am slowly moving from plastic Ziploc containers toward the glass. Ziploc containers are affordable, lightweight, dishwasher-safe, and cost-effective. They’re also great for those on a tight budget. Glass containers are durable and oven-safe. They are durable and can last for a long time, which helps reduce waste. Anchor Hocking made the glass containers shown in these photos. They can be purchased in my Amazon Shop. Pyrex glass meal preparation containers are also a favourite of mine.

HOW TO MAKE COTTAGE CHEESE BREAKFAST BOWLS
Cottage cheese novices should try the Apple Cinnamon-flavored Cottage Cheese Breakfast Bowl. It is not intimidating at all. It tastes a lot like yogurt parfaits but has a different texture. You won’t even notice the cottage cheese texture with all the texture you get from the walnuts and apples.
You can either chop your apples fresh every day or sprinkle some lemon juice over them after chopping.
