I really had hoped to post something a little sooner, but my plans were foiled a few days ago when my 2 year old spit an entire mouth full of apple juice right into the key board of my lap top. At the time I had one of those..."Why am I having another child??? moments". But I'm over it now, and my little r is once again the light of my life. She's just lucky she has a "computer nerd" daddy that knows how to fix just about everything electronic around here.

So I thought it only fitting that my first post of the new year, be something healthy. It seems like everyone I know has set goals for weight loss or healthy eating. One of the benefits of pregnancy at the new year; not really worrying about weight loss. However, I know that will be my number one goal come April. Anyway, this little recipe is one of my all time favorites.

Years ago, and I do mean many years, I really got into Body for Life. Some of you may have heard if it. It's a great program. I've done it twice in my life and both time lost a considerable amount of weight. The first time I lost 30 pounds and the second time I lost 25. I have many recipes from the program that have stuck with me over the years, not just because they're healthy, they also happen to be yummy. This was one of them.

I also thought this was a great fit for the upcoming Super Bowl Sunday. This is a perfect healthy munchie. Even my 2 year old gobbles this stuff up. She is a veggieholic though...strange but true.

(Recipe by Body for Life)

1 C. regular or low-fat cottage cheese
1 green onion, chopped
2 t. Italian seasoning
1/4 t. ground black pepper
1/2 t. salt

3. Serve with Veggies, Pita chips, crackers etc...
