healthy breakfast ideas that aren't eggs

Move over, overnight oats. Cottage cheese bowls are the new trendy breakfast in town. Okay, okay, you can relax now. Overnight oats are still very much a thing. BUT, cottage cheese breakfast bowls are also a thing now, and I think you’re going to like them. If you’re looking for a healthy, delicious, and Insta-worthy way to start your day, definitely check out this cottage cheese breakfast bowl recipe.

The Trendiest Meal of the Day

I think most of us go through a phase, at some time or another, where we’re just not “breakfast people.”

Growing up, meals were always pretty regimented in my house. If you weren’t eating three square meals a day, something was definitely wrong with you.

When I finally had the freedom to eat on my own terms, breakfast all but went out the window, and I was secretly proud of my “just coffee for me, thanks” lifestyle.

I still don’t think anyone should feel beholden to any one specific eating schedule. Different people need and want to eat different amounts of food at different times. There’s no one size fits all when it comes to a healthy diet.

That said, I do think there’s something to the whole “most important meal of the day” thing. While there are times when I’m definitely still a “just coffee” person, I have been trying to find new ways to get excited about breakfast.

Fortunately, it seems like there is always a fun new breakfast trend around the corner. Recently, I feel like I’ve been seeing cottage cheese breakfast bowls everywhere. This sweet and simple cottage cheese breakfast bowl is my take on the trend.

Light Breakfast, Lots to Love

If you’re like me, what you’ll love most about cottage cheese breakfast bowls is all the stuff that goes into them.

I go crazy for anything with the potential for toppings or mix-ins. I’d almost always rather go out for fro-yo than ice cream just for the wider range of toppings.

When it comes to breakfast, I’m the same way. I love anything that offers a variety of flavors and textures. If you were a fan of the smoothie bowl trend or love a good multi-layer parfait, cottage cheese breakfast bowls are definitely for you.

This healthy cottage cheese breakfast bowl recipe has just a few simple ingredients that combine for a delicious and flavorful breakfast.

Starting with chopped walnuts drizzled in honey, this healthy breakfast bowl features non-fat cottage cheese and sweet, fresh raspberries. Finally, I top the whole thing off with a light dusting of cocoa powder. Cocoa and raspberry are one of my favorite flavor combos, and it’s a great, healthy way to satisfy any chocolate cravings that may sneak up on you.

This breakfast is healthy, delicious, and very on trend. Whether you’re searching for your next breakfast go-to or just trying to mix things up in the morning, this light and fresh cottage cheese breakfast bowl is definitely worth try.

  1. Omg! Never in my life would I have thought that I would like this. I made some changes…pecans for walnuts, blueberries for raspberries and cinnamon for cocoa. Wow! I will try it the other way when I get those ingredients. Can’t wait to create other versions according to the season.

    1. Great! Lemon zest with blueberries and almonds would be a great combination as well! Thanks for sharing your ideas!
