This time of year, I stick pumpkin in almost everything! It's festive, fun and full of fiber!
Today, I decided to try it in some cottage cheese.
My 1/2 pint mason jar looked as follows:
1/2 cup of lowfat organic cottage cheese
5 shakes of my cinnamon jar
1 pinch of ground ginger
2 "pumpkin cubes" of pureed pumpkin (I froze 2 ice trays full of pumpkin puree)
1 squirt of agave nectar
I brought this to work with me, but I have to be honest...it sat on my desk until I became so hungry, that I HAD to eat it. I mean, cottage cheese ... pumpkin???
Well, my instincts were RIGHT ON! This stuff tasted GREAT!
I can't believe it took me this long to try this.
Getting back to basics, I truly am enjoying how having a few staples in the fridge, freezer and pantry can produce such a plethora of bountifulness!
