For lunch today, we had: cottage cheese, pineapple chunks, blackberries, half an apple sliced up and dry roasted peanuts. The entire meal was: 47 total carbs.. It has been a while since we had cottage cheese and fruit for lunch. It was really good.

Hi Jerry,

Thank you for saying that about the cottage cheese and fruit salad. It's been a long time since we were able to have cottage cheese mixed with fruit. I've missed having it as a choice for lunches each week. It was a surprise when my parents told me that that was what we were going to do today. Nice surprise! :-)

Lovely Leah, very varied and fresh and tasty! 😀👍

Thank you, Sue! Yes, you're right about it being tasty and fresh. We were going to add a fresh watermelon into everything, but we may use it for another meal later this coming weekend. :-)

It's the sort of food that's always great to eat, and not too much trouble to prepare either! 👍

Yes, I really missed having cottage cheese and it has kept from being hungry. I like a lot of the different fruits and glad we could add them to a fruit and nut salad. :-)

That's right! Something special and a nice surprise for part of the lunch this week. :-) We haven't had cottage cheese for almost 2 years.

That sounds really nice Leah, tasty, refreshing and nutritious, I'm glad you enjoyed it. xx

Thank you! If we have leftover fruit and cottage cheese later next week, I plan to try and have it again for another lunch. :-)

Sounds really nice Leah. xx

Looks really yummy 😋☺️ I’m not a big fan of blackberries though I wonder if there are sweet ones

Hi Fatbuddy,

I don’t know what the calories were because when I do the totaling, I just add up the carbs. in each meal. 😀

Looks great!
