over the past weeks i have been cutting dairy out of my diet. so far i have had little trouble removing the majority of dairy products. cottage cheese seems to be the last step. half a cup of cottage cheese has been my bedtime snack for the past three years. now i am having trouble getting over it. maybe i am strange, but i like the texture of it. i have found a couple ideas that involve tofu, variations of spankapita.

but i thought to ask what others who may be following the paleo diet or just dont do dairy what they sub, if anything for cottage cheese.

i know i could do eggs and fruit, or some kind of fish and vegetable combo. but at bedtime i really don't want to go through the hastle and honestly i have had my fill of eggs, fruit, fish, and vegetables in my other four meals. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. but i might just have to go cold turkey on this one.

Thomas, you are in the same position I was in 5 days ago... and although it's been 5 days since i've had ANY dairy, i MISS MY COTTAGE CHEESE! it was my bedtime snack for 5+ years :/

What i've done so far is this; buy some boars head low sodium turkey breasts and have it with a small salad or fruit. I'll be honest, it doesn't compare with the cold, creamy, dessert-like feeling you get with cottage cheese BUT I did it's not bad. I did try the turkey two days ago with avocado and MAN was it good! i've also done some soy yogurts (very yummy! but i still feel hungry after)... Suggestions from others woul be appreciated here too. :-)

Okay, what's a sub for a cappacino? Solve that for me and I'm next to no dairy overnight. :-)

I don't know of any good substitutes for cottage cheese but how about some kind of blended shake for your pre-bedtime snake? Something like banana, berry, apple juice and ice. It should give you that "cold, creamy, dessert-like feeling" that Frank mentioned.
