Between crazy amounts of work and getting settled into our new home, my days have been long lately. I’m working hard from morning to bedtime, and sometimes don’t have time for dinner until well into the evening. I need to make my lunch count as much as possible so I can get through the long afternoon. I’ve been having a ton of fun using the Friendship Dairies Superfood Generator to create energizing and colorful lunch bowls.
The Superfood Generator starts you off with a base of Friendship Dairies cottage cheese, The Original Superfood. With 15 grams of protein, it’s a great source of long-lasting energy. It’s also super versatile – you can mix it up with just about anything! After you choose your cottage cheese, you get to select ingredients from different categories, like crunchy, veggie, and herbs and spices, OR choose mix-ins based on their benefits, like antioxidant, potassium or fiber.
I created my Superfood Power Lunch Bowl by filling a bowl with spinach, then adding a serving of Friendship Dairies 1% Low Fat Cottage Cheese. I finished my bowl with black rice, roasted sweet potato, blueberries, pistachios and a lemon wedge for extra flavor.
