It’s hard to escape the protein talk right now, it’s being added to all meals and snacks and although I’m no expert I definitely have upped my protein intake with all I’ve read.

Foodtalk Recommends!

Make this delicious breakfast with this highly recommended cottage cheese and spinach that Amazon reviewers swear by!

This is one of the easiest ways to increase the protein in your breakfast while also making it really flavorful and if you’re like me, it increases the volume.

Start by whisking two whole eggs in a bowl

Add 1/3 cup of cottage cheese

Whisk that in until incorporated

I added a 1/3 cup of chopped spinach (microwaved until defrosted) to get a serving of veggies in and make this breakfast even more rounded and nutritious

Add the spinach to the egg mixture

Mix thoroughly

Heat a small skillet on medium high heat and spray with non stick cooking spray of choice

Pour the egg mixture into the pan and give it a minute or so until it starts to bubble and sizzle a bit

At that point start to push the egg mixture around in the pan with a spatula lifting and turning the mix for a few minutes, when the eggs have become firm or the consistency you enjoy remove from heat

I like to enjoy these eggs with a side of chicken breakfast sausage (recipe in my feed) which even ramps up the protein more!

    Thanks for recipe; Note: The use of cooking sprays is not recommended for use on non-stick cookware as cooking sprays burn at lower temperatures and will damage the non-stick coating of your product. An invisible buildup will impair the nonstick release system causing food to stick."

      Thanks for this info, and skip the nonstick spray! 🤷‍♀️
