Cottage cheese, flax seeds, and cinnamon each have impressive health benefits. Together, they're incredibly healthy.
Cottage cheese is high in protein and very filling, and full-fat varieties boast conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a fatty acid linked to health benefits.
Flax seeds are beneficial for weight loss and blood sugar control. They may also reduce breast cancer risk.
Cinnamon helps lower blood sugar and may improve gut health.
