    1. I love these bowls! They are so good and easy to make. I would love to add black olives to this bowl.

    2. This is so good. I love how easy this is to make and packed with protein to keep me full. So much flavor.
      Thank you for all of the wonderful recipes. They really help me with my weight loss and stay on track! You two are the best.

    3. This was… interesting. Not bad at all and I will definitely make it again with a few tweaks. I can see this being really good if warmed or blended up (the cottage cheese and salsa) and used as a crema for taco night

      Regardless, this was still a solid recipe especially if you’re short on time! It filled me up fast 🙂

      • Hi Kayelyn, thank you so much for leaving a review! I am so happy you enjoyed the savory cottage cheese bowl! Your ideas are fantastic, blending the cottage cheese and salsa together and using it as a crema sounds delicious. We also have a cottage cheese queso recipe that blends cottage cheese, salsa, taco seasoning, and cheese, that you might enjoy.
