Monday is a good day to start new behaviors.

Why not start Fasting this Monday? You have been waffling for a while, wondering if you could do it, or should do it.. So try it for a day — just one day.  See if you like the food; see how it feels; see how you feel the next day. Try it on for size tomorrow!

Cook the oatmeal in the water. Take off the heat and stir in the maple syrup and nutmeg. While it is still a little warm, stir in the cottage cheese. Let sit to cool. HINT: I did this part the night before while cleaning up after dinner. If making one portion, pour half of the pudding into a freezer container and top with 2 Tbsp blueberries. Freeze it. HINT: make the entire batch, eat half of it today and freeze the rest for a really simple to prepare breakfast. With the remainder, stir in 2 Tbsp blueberries and pour the pudding into a ramekin. Nuke it for a minute to heat through – longer than that and it will bubble over. Serve with the apple, fruit smoothie, and hot beverage for a hearty, healthy meal.
