Im new here, and Ive finally decided to lose weight. My docotor actually gave me a number to a nutrionist who gave me a personalized meal plan, and there are acouple of items I'm not to fond of.

Cottage Cheese.
Beets.
Grapefruit.
Canteloupe. (Im allergic to canteloupe, anyway.)

I didn't even think to look for those anyway, I was more excitied I got a new meal plan. haha. :D

Thanks!!

Could you do natural yogurt instead of the cottage cheese, turnips for the beets, oranges for the grapefruit and honeydew for the cantelope?

Cottage cheese - maybe you could substitute nonfat plain yogurt with fruit.

Beets - Lentils, chickpeas, brussel sprouts, asparagus

Grapefruit - any other citrus, such as tangerines or oranges

Canteloupe - grapes, watermelon, pineapple (although higher in sugar)

If your issue with cottage cheese is a texture issue, you can whip the lumps out with a food processor. It makes a good base for dips, I make a yummy spinach dip with some red onions, sun dried tomatoes, package of thawed, drained spinach and have a pack of Lipton Onion Soup Mix.
