Cottage Cheese and Blueberries

One of the things that this chef is doing is trying to cut down on his tonnage. In light of this I’ve been out playing basketball and feeling a bit better if not feeling a bit trimmer, yet. But one thing I’ve also been trying is more ‘healthy options’ especially in the morning. Today’s post is not so much a ‘recipe’ but a ‘something to try’. But I’ll try and write it as a recipe…

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Combine the ingredients in a nice breakfast bowl and refuse to share it with anyone!

Have a happy and healthy morning…

A Simple, Sweet, Asian Dressing

We’re continuing to dress for spring, as its right around the corner. This is an Asian styled dressing which combines the acid of rice vinegar and the acidity of soy sauce to the oil. The rice vinegar is very light in flavor so it’s really used here to cut down on the very potent flavor of the soy sauce. If you went with a straight thee to one of oil to soy the results would be ‘not so good’. With a little ginger, honey, and garlic for emulsification, the flavors combine nicely into a basic Asian sauce.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

Combine all the ingredients into a shaking bottle and shake away. Then, shake some on your salad! Same as last time…
