Today I've got another TikTok viral recipe for you! It's really easy to make, low-carb, keto and packed full of protein to keep you full for longer.

I'm not sure who shared this recipe on TikTok first but thank you! It is definitely a breakfast keeper. Apart from adding more protein per serving, the addition of cottage cheese to eggs makes them fluffier, moist so no more overcooked scrambles!

I modified the original recipe to make it fluffier and higher in protein by adding more cottage cheese. I also added a pinch of turmeric for an anti-inflammatory boost. If you use it, make sure to also add a pinch of black pepper as it significantly improves absorption of turmeric! You can then serve these fluffy scrambled eggs as they are or add more extras from the recipe tips below.

Watch me make these Fluffy Scrambled Eggs With Cottage Cheese step by step on YouTube!

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

It looks great, but I was wondering if the eggs were whisked with the cottage cheese and cooked, or if the eggs were cooked separately and the cottage cheese was folded in at the end. Thanks!

I think you could do either but I added them in step 2 before pouring in the pan 😊
