Many people look to Greek yogurt for a high-protein snack, but cottage cheese is also low in fat and loaded with casein protein, which digests slowly in the stomach to keep you full for hours. But instead of digging straight into the tub, why not jazz up your snack presentation with a fresh-fruit bowl?

Simply slice your cantaloupe in half, scoop out the seeds, and you’ve got a deliciously edible vessel that’s packed with vitamins B and C. Bonus: Cantaloupe flesh is chock-full of beta-carotene, which can help promote clear skin. Hello, healthy complexion. When it comes to taste, we’re loving how the savory flavors of cottage cheese complement the sweet flavor notes of the melon. Don’t be surprised if this healthy, gluten-free snack recipe almost tastes like dessert!
