With this refreshing recipe in your back pocket, there's no need to settle for boxed cereal when you don't want to make a hot breakfast. Cottage cheese is a fuss-free way to kick-start your day with high-quality protein. And since they're made up of almost 90 percent water, edible cantaloupe bowls are a stealthy way to bolster your summer-hydration efforts.


  • 1 cantaloupe
  • 1½ cup fat-free cottage cheese
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • ⅓ cup granola
  • ¼ cup pistachio nuts, chopped

  1. Slice a cantaloupe in half, and then slice roughly a half inch off the bottoms so both halves sit flat. Scoop out the seeds.
  2. Stir together cottage cheese, honey, vanilla extract, and lemon zest. Stuff half of the cottage cheese mixture into each of the cantaloupe halves. Sprinkle on granola and pistachios.
