Continuing the topic of breakfast from earlier this week, I’d like to share with you one of my favorites. Be forewarned: It’s an odd combination.
A toasted whole wheat english muffin, topped with peanut butter and lowfat cottage cheese.
I concocted this mix in college during the nutrition segment of my college biology class. Whole grain carbs? Check! Lowfat protein? Check! Healthy fats? Check! And naturally, you could find all the ingredients for super cheap at Aldi Foods or Meijer’s. (Which we don’t have in Nevada, I might add.)
It’s a classic Elaine concoction based on the idea that, if each ingredient is tasty on its own, it must be better put together! Perhaps this is why I rarely attempt to cook without a recipe.
I don’t know why, but I liked it then, and I like it now. It’s also really filling and super quick to make, so I end up eating it fairly often when I have all the ingredients handy.
Do you have a really weird signature recipe? Does anybody outside your immediate family like it, too?
