From what I can tell, it’s pretty hot all over the country right now, right? I know here in Florida we are in the upper 90s with heat indexes in the 100s every day. If I’m not near a body of water of some sort then I’m in air conditioning. I believe they call this time of year the “dog days of summer” (<– nerd alert – interesting info!).

Lately it seems like a) everyone I talk to feels like it’s too hot to cook, myself included and b) I am absolutely obsessed with cold melon (of all kinds). Watermelon for dinner? Sounds good to me!

This Summer Melon Protein Parfait is a product of our hot summer days and trying to eat reasonably well with as little effort as possible. I have been making these parfaits almost daily for breakfast, lunch or a late afternoon snack. Cottage cheese has never been a favorite of mine, but I’ve been trying to eat more of it for a boost of protein and calcium in my day. My little one loves it so I always have some in the fridge. When Bob’s Red Mill sent me a package of their Gluten Free Muesli to try a couple months ago I added it to my cottage cheese for texture (I need a little crunch whenever I eat yogurt or cottage cheese) and I’ve been hooked ever since.

3 ingredients is all you need for this hearty snack or light breakfast or lunch. I love having Bob’s muesli around for quick toppings for yogurt (or cottage cheese) or to make overnight oats. The Gluten Free variety has a great combination of dried fruit, seeds and even some dried coconut so it adds everything you need to make a bowl of plain cottage cheese a little more interesting in my opinion.

Good stuff!
