My normal breakfast is yogurt & nuts & fruit - strawberries, blueberries, apples, pears - whatever is in season and looking tasty. I have always kept frozen blueberries and strawberries in the freezer to make sure fruit is handy.
I love the taste of plain yogurt and fruit and nuts. There is something wonderfully fresh about this combo. I would eat it for breakfast and snack and dessert some days. I love the walnuts in the combo for their crunch and density. The yogurt would cover the fruit just enough to give the fruit a tang. It was healthy and I felt like I was doing something good for myself.
Yogurt is off the diet*.
Nuts are off the diet*.
But I'd like to still eat fruit with something.
Today I'm trying homemade cottage cheese with blueberries and strawberries - both frozen. I'm waiting for the berries to loose their crystals. I find myself picking at the cottage cheese in hunger. It is all quite cold. I know I'm not giving this a good "try".
But this breakfast - hot water for beverage and icy strawberries, icy blueberries and cold cottage cheese - isn't working for me.
I know I need to find something steady for breakfast. Something that is ready to go in the morning. I want to keep trying until I get the right replacement.
Maybe I'll try ricotta cheese and fruit tomorrow. Put a bowl of fruit together the night before?
