GLUTEN-FREE VEGETARIAN WEIGHT LOSS: PATRIOTIC BERRIES

If you're gluten-free, vegetarian and watching your weight when everyone is digging into the cheesecake with berries on top, here's something akin to the Virgin Mary for non-drinkers. It's pretty, it's festive, and you make no compromises to your commitments while you enjoy it. 
Find a dish you feel is really attractive, and fill it with either purchased pre-whipped cottage cheese (in the NYC area, that would be the Friendship brand) or gently whip some to achieve a creamier consistency than regular, large curd cheese. Sprinkle the cheese with sugar or sugar substitute (if you like), decorate with berries and you're done--easy as, but healthier than, pie!
