why do people like yogurt or cottage cheese?

I think the yogurt taste sour, it's yucky! Why would you eat just cottage cheese. It's lumpy. I need to find something healthy I can eat as part of my main meal.

Yogurt is sometimes sour- and some varieties and brands moreso than others. Cottage cheese comes in small and large curd, and there are brands that are nearly creamy as well. Ricotta makes another higher protein, lower fat protein source as well.

Many folks grew up on a lot of this stuff, and well, grew to enjoy them in their varying forms.

If you are looking to boost the protein in your meals, adding plain protein powders to things like sauces and using g it as a thickener; quinoa, and silken tofu can help.Happy

Certain flavors of Chobani yogurt are pretty tasty, and as far as cottage cheese goes I love the stuff and don't know why. Everyone else around me grosses out when I break out my tub for lunch.

Vicki is right; oftentimes liking yogurt and cottage cheese comes as an acquired taste. They are both very good for you and the more often you eat them the more likely you will like them. There are endless varieties of yogurt with varying degrees of fat content, texture, and additives. You will want to stay away from the ones that have a lot of added sugars and personally I don't think artificial sweeteners are good for anyone. Therefore, try to stay away from those.
My personal favorites are Fage 0%, Wallaby Organics and Siggi's. I have one serving with a Macrobar as my second breakfast almost every day. Fage 0% is plain greek yogurt, has a nice texture and is a good medium for adding fruit, or a dollop of natural peanut butter and mixing it, or a little granola, etc. the possibilities are endless. You can make yourself little parfaits that can be a very healthy meal or snack. Wallaby, is a little smoother and is very tasty, also another good one to add items too. Siggi's is a little thicker and comes in different natural flavors. Keep trying different brands to decide what works best for you.
Like Vicki wrote, there are endless possibilities with cottage cheese too. Cottage cheese is great mixed with all natural applesauce, pineapple, pears, peaches, and it is amazing with fresh tomatoes and a little dash of pepper and celery salt.
I hope you are able to find a combo that you enjoyHappy

Here's some suggestions:

Try mixing your cottage cheese with chopped up fresh fruits. I like mixing it with strawberries or pineapple. Or you can mix it with raisins or even halved grapes.

As far as yogurt- there are SOOO many flavors and varieties now you are bound to find one brand or flavor that you might like. I currently love the greek yogurt with honey mixed in. Try experimenting with different types.

I guess it is a required taste. I was brought up on the wrong things;like Sour Cream and Cream cheese.
But, I need to make better choices. I will try different yogurts to find the one that works best for me.
Thank you for your input.

i hate yogurt and cottage cheese... but i put things in it to make me like it. Like I eat plain greek yogurt with maple granola, or fruit with cottage cheese. Its not my favorite but I have to find an alternative to candy so I do my best by adding stuff to yogurt and cottage cheese to trick my mind into believing its a yummy candy.

I don't eat yogurt, but I can, and have, eat large curd cottage cheese by the spoonful. I put it on my eggs too. It's a great alterative to sour cream. I've heard mixing it with salsa is a pretty good blend. I'll have to try it some time.

This is an old "weight limited" breakfast

2 slices thin whole wheat bread, toasted
1/4 C large curd cottage cheese divided
2 rings pineapple

Spread the cottage cheese on the toasted bread, top with the pineapple ring and broil in a toaster oven until the pineapple starts to brown.

Decadent variation of "french toast".
