A few foods I keep seeing in various fitness foods/recipes that I am wondering what the vegan nutritional equivalent would be:

1 - cottage cheese
2 - Greek yogurt

I've had some decent soy yogurt but would prefer plain and unsweetened, add my own fruit without having the ton of sugar normally added.

Any thoughts?

There is no cottage cheese.

As for yogurt, do you mean more unsweetened than this?

Actually there is a Scottish company that does a substitue for just about any cheese you can think. I've seen it in stores I'll have to look it up.

Well, duh. Did you read my question? Or the subject line?

Nutritional equivalent. *Equivalent*. What are these products claiming to have that can be replicated?

Thanks!

Would that be Sheese? I love them!

I think the point was "mild low fat". Not certain....

Maybe that or the Silk sweetened with coconut oil?

There are some recipes that I like for good pre and post workout foods but some substitutions leave me head scratching.

Perhaps my English wasn't clear enough. There is no nutritional equivalent to cottage cheese. A vegan food that's 70% complete protein (by calories)? Protein powders and TVP, and that's about it. TJ's high-protein tofu is close, at 60%.

Ah, gotcha. My guess was low fat and mild. Maybe lite silken tofu?
