• I'm cutting down on nitrates and nitrites, so I choose cottage cheese.

      But nitrates are supposed to boost sports performance! Isn't it nitrosamine you should be concerned with? You know there are more nitrates in many healthy vegetables than they put in your meat by far! Do you not eat beets, carrots, celery, or the other veggies high in nitrates?
  • i like all of thenn
  • Banana is too high on the GI, so cottage cheese with hot sauce. Cheese isn't really my thing, and cottage cheese has casein protein, so I will be fuller longer.
    • Linda Joy
      That actually depends on the ripeness of the banana but this is what I found: "Bananas are actually low on the GI scale, having a glycemic index value of 51. (Foods with a low GI cause your blood sugar to rise gradually, not quickly, after eating them. GI values less than 55 are considered low.) - The Globe" I put habanero sauce in my cottage cheese!

      That is opposite of everything I have read about bananas. I love bananas, but I will stick with the cottage cheese.
    • Linda Joy
      I used to eat the banana, put the peel back together and offer it to my mom as a joke. She always said no, thank you. One day I said "How do you always know?" She said "I didn't, I'm allergic to bananas." lol

      Haha, aw that is too cute, Linda.
  • Depends on my mood at the moment AND on the specific variety of ham. Note that pork in general in the U.S. is safer to eat than either chicken or beef. (Yes, I know that surprises some, but see the CDC...) Anyway, compared to sausage, bacon, hot dogs and hamburger, ham is very low in fat (about 1/2 of what those others are), though chicken breast has about half the fat content of ham. *** ANYway, if it's honey or sugar cured ham: pass. If it's smoked or salt-cured, then (for my taste) it will compete with the cottage cheese. (I do love cottage cheese.)
