This citrus power bowl is the perfect way to get energized first thing in the morning. I’m working on starting the day with a healthy breakfast. I know it’s the most important meal of the day. But, morning isn’t necessarily my best time. So, I’ve been trying to find easy solutions that aren’t grain-based. I look for healthy protein sources that don’t require cooking, so cottage cheese is a perfect solution.
Citrus Power Bowl
I have a thing for power bowls. They’re easy and delicious and super healthy. I’ve been playing with flavor combinations to come up with a citrus power bowl I could enjoy for breakfast in the morning.
I wanted to make sure it was loaded with protein to keep me full and give me the willpower to resist snacking, and this is what I came up with. It combines several of my favorite flavors into one delicious, healthy breakfast!
What should I add to my power bowl?
I love the taste of Hood Cottage Cheese with Honey & Pear. Honey is one of my favorite healthy sweeteners, and I love being able to enjoy it in my citrus power bowl. It has just the right amount of sweetness to it.
I chose to add almonds to my power bowl for a boost in protein and added crunch. The combination is perfect with the creamy Hood Cottage Cheese. You could substitute cashews or walnuts if you prefer. When the pears are ripe on our pear trees, I’ll be adding chopped pears into this power bowl too.
Look for these flavors:
I found Hood Cottage Cheese for my citrus power bowl at my local Shaws Supermarket but make sure to check the grocery stores in your area or check the Hood Product Locator. Hood Cottage Cheese is available in a number of different flavors including:
- Cucumber & Dill
- Honey & Pear
- Maple & Vanilla
- Garden Vegetables

- Sprinkle Chia seeds on top if you like.
