Good morning!  What did you have for breakfast today?  A bowl of cereal?  Maybe boiled eggs, or a cup of yogurt?  How about trying something new that’s healthy, delicious, and can be put together the night before?
I consider myself a savory girl – I’d much rather have something salty than sweet.  I snack on pickles instead of cookies, but that’s another story.  
For this breakfast, there are just a few ingredients – cottage cheese (I prefer a large curd), a stalk of celery, a tomato, some black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.  Fresh herbs work really well – I’ve tried cilantro, dill, and parsley before.  This time I went with basil.  
To put it all together, place a serving of cottage cheese in your to-go-container, add diced tomato, diced celery (if you want to be fancy, peel your celery), drizzle olive oil and season with black pepper.  I would recommend adding the herbs right before you enjoy the dish.  For some extra crunch, I eat this with Nabisco Cracked Pepper & Olive Oil crackers (my new obsession).
Like this?  Please let me know!  Bon appetit
