Snack Attack: Marvelous Melon

Who could pass up the crisp and refreshing taste of melon? It's great in fruit salad and it cools you down in the summer. If you are craving a little bit of summer try this incredibly easy snack.

What you'll need:

Melon (any kind but watermelon)
1 cup of cottage cheese

  • Take the melon (my fave is cantaloupe) and cut it in half.
  • Scoop out all the seeds.
  • Fill the melon bowl with cottage cheese or yogurt.
  • Serve as is and scoop out bite-sized spoonfuls. Or if you prefer - you can cut the cantaloupe up and serve on a plate.

Why we love it:
Melons like cantaloupe are high in vitamins A and C, and potassium. They are low in calories and easy to digest.
Cottage cheese and yogurt are great sources of calcium and protein - try using the low fat versions.

Plus, it's so easy to make and if you use the melon like a bowl, it is easy to clean up too.

don't eat dole cantalopes!!! Dole is recalling 6,000 cartons of cantaloupes after they tested positive for salmonella. So far, Dole says they don't have any reports of people becoming sick because of the fruit. Here's what you need look for the cartons are dark brown with red lettering. They have a 13 digit number on them with the tenth digit of 2. People who have the cantaloupes should call the store where they bought them or contact Dole at 1- 800- 232- 8888. source:
