I once heard someone claim he had discovered the key to losing weight. “Just don’t eat cottage chess.” He said, “Because nobody but fat people eat the stuff.”
I’m not sure his theory was correct, but I do like the idea of a cottage cheese lunch as a way to redeem the time. For many of us, the hardest part of the day to stay alert and focused is just after the lunch hour. When speaking for a conference, I always hope I don’t get the slot right after lunch because that’s when everyone’s body is diverting energy from mental activity to digestion.
By eating a light lunch, such as cottage cheese, you don’t overload your body in the middle of the day with the unnecessary task of digesting a full course meal. That means you’ll be sharper in the afternoon to do the task God wants you to do.
I can’t say if cottage cheese will make you fat or not. But it might help you redeem the time.
