As many of you know, I am on a journey to change my way of living. From the way I exercise, or lack of, to the way I was eating. I have been very successful thus far, and I am on a quest to find ways that I can encourage my family to get excited and join me on my journey so that it can not only be easier for me, but so that we can become a healthier family together! Something that I have been doing to make things easier for all of us is finding things that we all like and making them more appealing. One item that I found that has made my diet easier and that my whole family likes is cottage cheese. Now for me, I have been going with the Fat Free cottage cheese, but for the kids, they can go with the regular cottage cheese. My kids will eat cottage cheese every once in a while, but for them, it can get boring, so when I heard about the Friendship Dairies Mobile Mixer Food Truck Tour and I saw some of the recipes where they use cottage cheese, I knew that I had to look at all of the recipes that they had! In fact, if you are on the East Coast in the New York City Metro area, you can check out all of the free recipes for the protein packed, on the go, cottage cheese creations!

You can find these recipes from now until June 7th, from the Friendship Dairies. I was able to find the recipes that I know my family will love on the Friendship Dairies website, but you can also find recipes on their social networks sites like on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest! I love that there are a variety of recipes available that incorporate using cottage cheese in dishes from the appetizer to the main dish and even in a delicious dessert! In my house we love blueberries, and one our favorite recipes that we tried out and have all loved is the Friendship Smooth and Creamy With Crunchy Walnut and Blueberries
2 cups Friendship 1% cottage cheese
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon water
1 cup mixed unsweetened freeze dried blueberries (such as Trader Joeʼs)
1/2 cup calorie free pancake syrup (such as Walden Farms)
4 tablespoons black walnuts, toasted and chopped
Recipe developed by Rocco DiSpirito
Blend cottage cheese, lemon juice, water & process on high until very smooth, 20 seconds. Spread mixture onto 4 round plates. Top with walnuts & blueberries then drizzle each with 2 tablespoons of syrup.
