WACC Salad Recipe

Okay, so this isn't really a 'recipe' - you don't have to cook anything. But I was rummaging through my fridge the other morning for breakfast and this is what I came up with. I can see it as a fast breakfast or healthy snack.

I'm not a huge fan of cottage cheese (as y'all probably already know), but I found that the flavor and texture of the apple and walnuts took care of that. It was pretty dang yummy and did not upset my stomach (still a major achievement these days) and it filled me up for the whole morning. It is packed with protein and fiber.

The nutritional info above was taking from online searches rather than the packaging itself, so it truly is an approximation. Still, useful info hopefully.
