Cottage Cheese And Bagel Breakfast
This is a super easy and tasty meal to make. Personally, I have this meal at least once a week because it doesn't take anymore than 5 minutes to make and it powers up my whole day. The whole wheat bagel provides me with a carbohydrate/calorie dense food while the cottage cheese gives me the protein I need to kick start my day.
I suggest you stick with whole wheat bagels because they're not as processed as white bagels. As for cottage cheese, you should be good with 1% or 2% but don't go any higher than that for fat content.
Remember, try and get whole orange juice either from your health food store or organics section of your grocery store. Better yet, try freshly squeezing your juice - This will cut down on the processed junk.
- ½ whole wheat bagel

In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix cottage cheese, almonds, and raisins until smooth. Toast bagel and spread peanut butter. Serve immediately.
