An apple a day - with some cheese

It's all about food these days, what with this being day 6 of Weight Watchers II: The Sequel. And with that in mind, I have a snack to share that literally blew me away when I tried it for the first time yesterday.

It's quite possible that it's not altogether as delectable as I think it is because I'm pretty sure hand sanitizer on felt would taste pretty darn good to me right about now, but just in case my taste buds and tummy aren't lying, you should totally try this.

Cut up an apple into little pieces (this makes it look like a LOT in the bowl - which, if you're on Weight Watchers, will make you want to squeal with glee) add about a 1/2 cup of 1% cottage cheese and sprinkle with cinnamon (to taste - I use probably a 1/4 of a tsp). Mix it all up and enjoy!

It's sooooo awesome! It kind of tastes like creamy apple pie. Well, with cold little cheese chunks and no crust, but close enough.

Good and good for you - and only 2 Weight Watchers points. Can't beat that!

Okay fine, a big honking piece of thickly iced chocolate cake beats the hell out of a skinny little apple and low fat cottage cheese, but just play along. The crazy hungry lady needs you to just play along.

I might have to try this snack! I'm on month 2 of WW and after a substanial loss the first month, I'm leveling off. . . of course it might be the chocolate chip cookies . . . .

I'm a fan of pineapple and cottage cheese...but I have no idea how that fits into WW.

Here's another apple trick. Cut the core out of an apple, fill the middle with cinnamon and a little bit of brown sugar, microwave until warm and mushy and yummy. idea how that fits into WW.

I've had all of these! And they are yummy. I also highly recommend low-fat plain yogurt or sour cream with apples and cinnamon.

And the apples and cinnamon in the micro is good even without the sugar, although I have to confess I love to add a little butter or margarine, I guess trans-fat free maybe would work with WW?
