This is one of my favorite light meals. In keeping with my breakfast theme, this is another fast, easy breakfast or lunch. It's even acceptable for teenaged (or older) girls who might be whining, "I'm getting fat!"
1 can fruit cocktail in juice, drained well
1 pound cottage cheese
1/4 cup whipped cream (homemade, canned or cool whip - you choose)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup slivered almonds or chopped walnuts
Dump everything in a bowl. Stir. Eat. It'll keep for several days, if need be.
One of my absolute rules is that with protein one must eat carbohydrates. Eggs are not really all that filling without toast. This has dairy products and fruit, and so fulfills that requirement. If you pack it in a lunch with some nice crackers and a tall iced tea (unsweetened if you want to stay on that diet), it's really easy. And, as I said, when the girls got old enough to whine about not wanting a big breakfast, this was a good replacement.
