Yummy Cinnamon Dusted Apples with Cottage Cheese
I stumbled upon this totally yummy snack recipe when I was looking for ways to spruce up my snack schedule. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Can't wait to make it again today!
As you may (or may not) know, I’m a HUGE fan of snacks! I have at least 2 of them a day, as I’m one that eats anywhere from 4 to 5 small meals a day.
Since I tend to be on the go, the easier the better….right?! I don’t think I’m alone on this one! Hence, why I love relying on the library of nutritional guides I have from my favorite Beachbody workout programs – P90X, Insanity, Turbo Fire and Brazil Butt Lift.
This new one I tried is from TurboFire, so can’t quite take credit for it’s creation…just for how it turned out!
Here’s what you need:
1 medium apple (the crispier, the better, for me!!)
2 tbsp of water
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 tbsp of chopped walnuts or sliced almonds
1/2 cup of 2% cottage cheese
Slice apple into thin pieces, removing the core. Saute the sliced apples in the water, until tender, yet crispy. Place cottage cheese in a flat bowl (think pasta bowl), place sauteed apples on top, sprinkle cinnamon and nuts on top.
This gives you that sweet afternoon snack that will tie you over until it’s time to fuel your body with your final meal of the day!
Enjoy! As always, I encourage you to comment below, if you try it and how it turns out for you!
