This breakfast option is wonderful for busy individuals. Prep at night and enjoy in the morning without any fuss. Feel free to sub out for plain Greek yogurt or ricotta cheese. Try this cottage cheese with my yummy almond crackers.
¾ cup Cottage cheese
¼ cup strawberries (halved)
¼ cup blueberries
¼ tsp almond extract
1 tbsp chopped walnuts
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
- Combine into one bowl and enjoy!

Very Berry Smoothie
Makes 4-6 cups
“This is a favourite, go-to smoothie. It’s simple, delicious and full of the wonderful protective antioxidants found in berries.”
Image from Nutri Bullet Recipes
1/4 cup blueberries (fresh/frozen)
1/4 cup raspberries (fresh/frozen)
2 bananas, sliced and frozen
3 tbsp. date paste or 1 dropper liquid stevia (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla powder or vanilla extract (optional)
2 cups almond milk, flax milk or water
6 ice cubes
Additional berries, for garnish (optional)
Blend all ingredients until very smooth. This looks pretty topped with a few whole berries.
FYI: brightly coloured berries aren’t only sweet, succulent, and delicious, they also contain vitamin C and powerful antioxidants, such as lutein, anthocyanins, ellagic acid and quercetin. Great taste, great nutrition.
