Health and Fitness
Cottage cheese is healthy and nutritious
Cottage cheese is a fresh cheese, so it does not undergo an aging or ripening process to develop flavor. One of the biggest benefits of cottage cheese is the high amount of casein protein found in it. Casein is a slowly absorbed protein that promotes muscle gain and helps prevent muscle breakdown. Cottage cheese is also a good source of magnesium. Most of the magnesium in our body is concentrated in the bones. Magnesium acts as a catalyst in promoting biochemical reactions; it activates various enzymes in our body, maintains muscle and nerve functioning, and supports the immune system. It also helps maintain blood sugar levels and prevents heart attacks, constipation, psychiatric disorders and migraines.

On the day of the couple?s anniversary, Zigler handed her husband a nicely wrapped package. Looking a little puzzled, her husband began unwrapping his anniversary gift to find a new bathroom scale.
