I wanted to add more Casein protein to my diet...so on my last meal which was usually a Whey Shake in Skim Milk, would it be alright to add 2 Tablespoons of Low Fat Cottage Cheese?

it would be even better to make it a cup of cottage cheese and adjust the whey accordingly if you are worried about calories. Whey is processed out quickly...the cottage cheese will feed your muscles over a longer period of time.

alright sounds good...

now in the mornings for my 1st meal, like i usually have oats

but would it hurt to have brown rice sometimes? or All Bran cereal with skim milk to add varity or should i simply stick to the oats?

^i didnt want to eat more because of the saturated fat.. like staying as low as possible on sat. fat.

get the 1% milkfat or fat free if it concerns you.

as bor breakfast any starchy carb is fine...but you need protein then...good time to take your whey or eat some eggs, egg whites, chicken...

like every diet i see always has oats as the staple as their breakfast and i thought that was probably the best choice

Brown rice would be fine for breakfast - all you really need in the morning is a complex carb and a lean protein to replenish your body after a long nights sleep. It's also a good idea to get the majority of your carbs in the morning and fats at night, but that's mainly if you're worried about gaining fat.
