We eat a lot of fruit, here. We especially love citrus and apples. Tonight was a medly of mangos, fresh strawberries, and kiwis, with a bit of fat free cottage cheese on the side. I hadn't heard of no salt added cottage cheese, before, Bergie. I had no idea that salt was added to it. I will have to look for that next time. We don't eat it often, though. I do make a lot of vtrsmy salad dressings out of plain fat free yogurt. It's nice and tangy. Greek yogurt is a lot like sour cream. Very rich tasting. You can make ranch types easily with a few herbs.

I will not wait to have a good day. I will make one.
Most days I cut up bosc pears, plums, grapes, oranges plus whatever is in season (kiwi, pineapple guava, watermelon) for a fruit salad. Usually I have a protein "dressing," which is no-salt-added cottage cheese.
Since it is no-salt added, it is sweeter than normal cottage cheese and gives me that protein with all those carbs. It is the only cottage cheese I buy now that I am watching my sodium levels.
Apple slices. I like to add a dab of honey or dulce de leche, maybe a sprinkle of cinnamon. It doesn't add too many calories as long as it's only a small dab, but it makes them seem so much more dessert-like. And during cold nights, you can bake whole cored apples in the oven for a warm treat.
