Cottage cheese with celery and whole grain mustard


I’m on my second week of trying out the 5:2 diet. It’s probably just the latest silly fad, but there’s something about it that piqued my interest, so I decided to give it a try. I fast on Mondays and Thursdays, that leaves my weekends free for silly stuff, which suits me just fine.

This also means I’m always on the lookout for simple, low-calorie meals. This whole thing works best if I prepare for the fast days, but this weekend I spent the days watching Supernatural and eating cookies and I just completely forgot to think about today being a fast day!

So after getting out of bed and showering (at noon, I suck), I went to the kitchen to find something light to eat and had nothing. I had to improvise!

I ended up tossing together this super simple “salad” and spreading it on two slices of crisp bread. It’s hardly a recipe, but here goes:

Cottage cheese with celery and whole grain mustard

1 heaping tablespoon of cottage cheese
Half a stalk of celery, finely chopped
1 teaspoon whole grain mustard

Mix well and eat!

It’s delicious!

  1. Hi Dora
    it piqued my interest first time around six months ago and it does work. I followed it diligently for five months, fell off the wagon and this week am embarking on it again. I try to do Mondays and Thursdays so I can enjoy my weekends too.

      I quite like the idea of it, but I’m struggling a little bit with it. I think it might be because I’m unemployed and I spend a lot of time having nothing to do. That’s the kind of situation that makes me eat more! I’m hoping I’ll get used to it because I’ve heard great things. šŸ™‚

      Thanks for the comment!
