This High Protein Cottage Cheese Dip Will Be Your New Gym Buddy

A great dip can do it all. It can take even the most basic inedible snack from zero to hero in just one bite. And just like you couldn’t imagine your nachos without salsa, you won’t be able to imagine a snack session without this creamy high protein dip. 

For anyone on a health journey, getting enough protein is essential. It helps keep the body fit and fuelled while also helping stave off hunger pangs. Proteins are the building blocks of the body and help to repair and regenerate cells. So if you’re looking to shed fat or gain muscle, high protein diets are the place to start. 

One of the best-kept secrets for a high-protein diet is cottage cheese. With a staggering 28 grams and only 163 calories in every cup of cottage cheese, it’s a great way to meet your daily targets without eating a lot of meat or grains to fulfil your quota. 

This recipe for a high protein cottage cheese dip takes advantage of its natural nutrition while adding a zing of freshness with coriander and lime. You can make adjustments regarding the flavours. Gherkins, jalapenos, chopped tomatoes all work well with this recipe. Anything that you feel is light and fresh will elevate the creaminess of the cheese.
