I'm just wondering if anyone knows - if Explorers are advised whey based cheeses, why is cottage cheese on the avoid list?

Dairy is on my avoid list, but having had swami done, I get 1/2 cup of cottage cheese three time a week, or I can choose 4-6 oz or milk in place of one of those servings, or even a bit of farmers cheese.

swami is a personalized plan.

For any foods, always check the ingredients against your list and decide for yourself how compliant you want to be. I can only find cottage cheese made with cream (among other nasties) where I live.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Cottage cheese has very little whey. It is mostly curds.

Ricotta would be a whey based cheese.

Hi thanks for the replies.  Regarding Ricotta cheese which is regarded as a superfood on the explorer list, I cannot find ricotta cheese in any local supermarkets, anyone know which stores sell ricotta cheese in the uk?

It may go by a different name in the UK. Hopefully one of our members from there will advise.

Hi SilverCloud

You can buy it in Sainsbury's, Tesco, Waitrose etc - it's fairly common so I don't understand why you've not found it??

Hi Andy, I have a sainsburys and a tesco locally but they are both rather small so only have the most popular/basic items.  But good to know that ricotta cheese can be bought, just need to travel out at some point to one of the big stores.

The one I am able to get has milk added, so I put it in a fine strainer and wash all the milk off. It actually works!

I certainly understand why cottage cheese is on the avoid list for explorers as I bought some the other day (before I posted the question on here) as when I read about whey all the websites seemed to mention cottage cheese, although obviously I now know it's only a little bit of whey in it.  Anyway, been eating some the past couple of days and within 1-2 hours later ended up both days getting indigestion all the rest of the day/night, the rest has gone in the bin now obviously.  Should definitely stick to superfoods and neutrals and avoid those avoids!

And so happy that I have just discovered I can buy ricotta in my local sainsburys - turned out it was hidden away at the side with the alternative cheeses as opposed to the soft cheeses.  So no need for expensive bus fares out to one of the big stores

This Explorer has it as a diamond! But I have a hard time digesting it too if I don't pop a couple of Lactaids before I eat it. I HAVE to take them - no if's, and's or but's! Or, believe me, I regret it if I don't!
