Recipe: Quick Cottage Cheese Frittata

If your New Years Resolution is to eat healthier, you’re not alone, according to Google. The week before 2016 kicked off, there was a spike in searches for healthy recipes, including those with kale, collard greens, and broccoli.

Searching for a few recipes may have been working up until Jan. 8, but there’s another 357 days to go in 2016 and some new healthy recipes might need to be added to your low-cal repertoire. Our friends at Darigold advise adding cottage cheese to your grocery list; it’s gluten-free and packed with protein, potassium, calcium, and vitamins A and D.

Darigold has a quick and easy Cottage Cheese Frittata recipe to help with a healthy and delicious 2016.
