This is a delicious protein filled snack with stevia, cinnamon and cottage cheese.

1/2 cup cottage cheese
Since I started carb cycling, I’ve really enjoyed bringing back some good quality carbs back into my life. :mrgreen:. This is the first time I’ve made this and it won’t be the last. It’s a delicious breakfast or afternoon snack.

Below is how I made my grilled sandwich. I sliced the bread in half and placed it on a buttered griddle. I added some fried spicy cappicolo (ham) & shredded cheddar cheese. Grill until golden brown and serve.
