What do we do now?

Oops. You had a lovely weekend and ate all kinds of good things. And then there’s this coming week with New Year’s Eve and all.  So just chuck it and start fresh in January, right?   NOPE. Tomorrow is Monday, so make it a Fast Day. Then behave yourself and Fast again on Thursday breakfast.  Your will power can remain strong and what ever you gained will come off again. Follow me.

Cottage Cheese & Pears 290 calories        PB GF                                                    This is from the Fast Diet book. You can see some other good recipes there, too. I added the pecans to this for deeper flavor and more protein.Strawberry Cottage Cheese with Pear

1 ripe pear of which Comice is the best and winter is the season for them    ½ cup fat free cottage cheese                                                                                             ¼ c. blueberries                                                                                                                       1 ¼ tsp pecans, finely chopped                                                                                          5-6 oz fruit smoothie or natural apple cider                                                                                    blackish coffee, blackish tea, or lemon in hot water

Section the pear into 12 slices and remove the core. For the good fiber, do not peel the pears. Fan the segments on a plate in a circle. Place the cottage cheese in the center, sprinkle with the berries and nuts. Pour the smoothie and hot beverage of choice. Good stuff!
