Roasted Peaches and Cream

Roasted Peaches and Cream

Top 2 things I hear when I am in the healthy eating groups: 

  1. I don’t like the texture of cottage cheese…yuck!  
  2. How can you eat plain Greek yogurt? 

I could just tell people…if you don’t like it, don’t eat it.  However, that would not be helpful in teaching people to be more acceptable and creative about eating healthier foods, right?  Tonight, I had hankering for a decadent dessert. Yeah, it was one of those days. Of course, I open up my fridge and all I had was 2 small ripe peaches and low fat cottage cheese. Most people would say, “Just chop up those peaches and top it on the cottage cheese.” I’m sorry but that is NOT a decadent dessert. With a little vision, I decided to make this Roasted Peaches and Cream.  Spoiler alert, it was real good…
