Cottage Cheese, Walnuts, and Craisin Snack

Snack Attack: Nutty Craisin Cottage Cheese

If you're looking for a snack that'll fill you up, give you energy, and also satisfy your need for something creamy, crunchy, or sweet, then have I got the snack for you. It's made with only three ingredients, so it's super simple to whip up, and has become my new favorite afternoon snack.

To learn how this snack is made and find out how many calories and grams of protein it contains keep reading.

All you need is four ounces of cottage cheese (I buy it in those packs of four), one tablespoon walnuts, and two tablespoons dried cranberries. Mix in a bowl and enjoy. Not only is this yummy snack low in calories and high in protein, but the walnuts also offer half your RDI of omega-3s.
