Tried cottage cheese for the first time - help me jazz it up



Recommended Posts

I have a seasoning called shallot pepper from Penzey's Spices that I love on cottage cheese. Lemon pepper is good, too. I buy those 'fruit only' spreads and put a teaspoon of that in 1/2 cup cottage cheese, and it's delicious (when you can have them).

I add a package of the powder of Jello into it and a little sugar free cool whip and pineapple if you can have it.

Or, add the Fat free, sugar free cheesecake flavored Jello pudding and some sf coolwhip (and crushed pineapple if you can have fruit). Sometimes you have to add a couple tablespoons of skim milk to it. Mmmmm.

Any spice store has wonderful spice "blends". There is a Thai coconut one I adore- as well as pesto blends, etc. All can be added to cottage cheese to give it a little zip- tiny amounts (scant) work, and as you transition to other foods, like chicken, you can continue using them to create different recipes.

Sorry to hear that! I always suggest small small exercises to people who have limited mobility. Start small, maybe lift the remote 40 times in on TV show or whatever can be a challenge to build on for you. Lifting legs up and down or having a small weight next to you. There are tons of "TV exercises." as far as good goes... As most of us can attest to, Protein protein protein. If that's not working I'd ask the Dr, maybe something else is off, going on?

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
