Recipe: Apple and Cottage Cheese Delight

P2Yum to cottage cheese!

It wasn’t until my 4th round that I actually tried cottage cheese for P2.  Sure, I read like everyone else that cottage cheese was allowed, however, I never ever thought it would be satiating enough to feel like a real meal.  I mean, come on, we are only allowed 500 calories in a day and why would I want to waste it on such a small amount of food?

What I didn’t realize until I tried it is that it’s more satiating than you can imagine.

Dr. Simeons recommends using non-fat cottage cheese, and 100 grams.  However, I have found that using low-fat (2%) is perfectly acceptable, and at only 90 calories for close to 4 oz, well within the limits of our 500 calories.  In fact, it’s so low that it’s a perfect compliment to a day that you choose beef as your other meal.

One other thing, it is a meal that can be made ahead of time and taken in a small cooler for those times that you need something on the run.

A note.  I absolutely love Daisy Sour Cream.  It’s one of the few dairy products out there that doesn’t put the dreaded carrageenan in its products.  When I discovered at my local supermarket that they started carrying cottage cheese, I was more than overjoyed!  YIPPEE!!!  From their non-fat to low-fat to full-fat, all of them have just natural and pure ingredients.

Enjoy!

5 minutes prep
10 minutes start to finish

1 apple, washed and cored, then chopped fairly large
4 oz low fat cottage cheese (no junk ingredients!)
3 packets of sweetener (or to taste)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Shake of nutmeg

Put the chopped apple in a microwave safe dish that has been sprayed with no calorie oil spray.  Heat on high for 90 seconds.  Immediately add the sweetener and let set for a while until it has created a sort of syrup.

Place the cottage cheese on a plate, sprinkle with half the cinnamon, and then place the apples on the top, and ENJOY!!!

You could also mix it together, either way it’s nummy!

    This looks and sounds wonderful! Yummy! It’s a perfect meal after a night shift, before going to bed. With just starting back on P2, it’s nice to have a new recipe to look forward to.

      It’s delish this time of year. And for those using the higher fat protocol, adding just a tinge of butter makes it even MORE yummy!
