Finn, Forrest General’s newest canine recruit, has his own Forrest General badge. He carpools to work, drinks from his own water bottle and follows his instructor’s directions, for which he is rewarded with a peanut butter treat. He loves visiting with patients and performing for them and especially appreciates their doting on him. When everybody is happy, he wags his tail.

Whipped Cottage Breakfast Bowl
Cottage cheese is an excellent source of protein, low in fat, and high in calcium.
In a small food processor or personal blender, pulse the cottage cheese until it is smooth and creamy, for about 2-3 minutes.
Remove the seeds from the pomegranate and prepare the other toppings. Optional: toast the coconut flakes and hazelnuts in a skillet over medium-heat for 2-3 minutes stirring frequently.
Serve right away or keep in the fridge for up to 24-hours.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 24-hours. Whipped cottage cheese doesn’t keep as long a un-whipped so only whip what you plan to eat in the next 1-2 days.
