Just last week there was a great blog post by a friend of ours, Scott McKain.  Scott’s widow, Sheri, was an amazing woman, full of spirit, hope and faith.  She sadly left us a few years ago to cancer, but her motivation to live on every day and live life to the fullest remains always in my mind.  Take a quick read at Scott’s post…he’s full of great ideas, hope and inspiration, love reading his blog.

Hope everyone is off to a great start on your week!


Tasty Tuesday: Creamy Pistachio & Pineapple Delight

Nutrition & Recipes No Comments

Rasp. cupcakeHello again blog-land—if you can’t tell, the staff at BCCA has been swamped in the past month (why we’re falling behind on our posts).  But do not fear—with new staff and exciting things happening at the organization, our blog is going to be back around the clock!

With that said, we’re back on track with our Tasty Tuesday recipes.  As with many of our recipes, we like to post ones that are from our readers, family members of our staff and our great association with medical nutritionists.

This week, the recipe comes from the aunt of our staff who was looking for a low-fat creamy dessert without all the bad stuff.  Now please, when you read the ingredients and the combination of ingredients, you may think it sounds crazy—but trust me (from experience…I had to try this since it was so unique)…it’s FANTASTIC tasting!  So as Julia Child would say, bon appetit (yes, I did see the Julie & Julia movie…made me want to start cooking minus all the butter of course!)

Creamy Pistachio & Pineapple Delight

1-16oz container of Low Fat (or Fat Free) Cottage Cheese

1 1/2 cups of Fat Free Cool Whip

1/2 of a fresh pineapple freshly diced -or- 1 can of crushed pineapple (juices drained)

2 small fresh mandarin oranges diced -or- 1 can of mandarin oranges (juices drained)

1 package of Fat Free/Sugar Free Pistachio Pudding Mix-INSTANT KIND

Mix all of the above ingredients together and chill for 2 hours before serving.  Great topped with a fresh mint sprig and a sliced strawberry for color.
