Are you guys in Stage 1 or Stage 2? My understanding is that the only dairy allowed in Stage 1 is plain organic yogurt or kefir, and even some AC diets don’t allow those because of the high lactose (milk sugars). Here’s from the “Foods to Avoid” list for Stage 1
“Holistic practitioners recommend that Candida sufferers dramatically reduce their dairy intake

***A small amount of Swiss or Mozzarella cheese can be reintroduced in Stage 2***)
Swiss and Mozzarella are exmaples of cheeses that are not aged (or are aged only briefly) and are allowed to be reintroduced in Stage 2, with caution. I don’t think I’d be snacking on cottage cheese.
If you *must* have some, goat’s milk is lower in lactose than cow’s milk. So, your best bet would be organic goat’s milk cottage cheese, but my understanding is that it would not be an allowed food at all on this diet. I could be wrong (?).
