Tomatoes With Cottage Cheese

Who knew that an article about fast food would inspire me to make a healthy snack? The point of the article is that Americans are choosing the most calorie and fat laden items on the menu even when they have healthier options like apple slices, turkey burgers, oatmeal and fruit smoothies.  The article mentioned Wendy's attempt at being healthy about two decades ago--tomato halves filled with cottage cheese. Well--it might not have taken off at Wendy's but I definitely enjoyed it.  I had one tomato half with dinner and the other got brought to work for lunch.  I just scraped the seeds out, filled it with cottage cheese and topped it with pepper and a bit of fresh dill. Yum!
