3 Peach Halves at 81 calories = 243 calories + lettuce at 2 calories = 245 calories

385 calories total - above 245 calories = 140 calories

140 calories / 20 calories per ounce = 7 ounces of cottage cheese

### Can you freeze cottage cheese?

Why not? Anything can be possible, however the problem is that when defrosted, the cottage cheese will breakdown soon thereafter if not consumed immediately.

### What foods are low in potassium?

Almost all foods have some of it, so the serving size becomes important. For a low-potassium diet avoid LARGE servings of
- whole grain bread, brans, granola
- sports drinks, all milk products, soy milk
- apricots, avocado, bananas, melons, oranges, pears, dried fruits
- baked beans, raw cabbage, raw carrots, olives, potato, pumpkin, spinach, tomatoes, most bean types
- clams, most fish, most beef types
- salt free soups, low-salt and salt substituted foods = avoid these completely
- peanut butter, peanuts, chocolate
Note that this list is NOT exhaustive and can be eaten in smaller quantities, 1/2 cup or so.
Low potassium foods are
- white flour and white breads
= cakes and pies without chocolate or high-K fruits or nuts
- apples, apricots, blackberries, cherries, grapes, mandarins, peaches (drain syrup off), pineapple, plums, strawberries
- asparagus, green beans, cooked cabbage and carrots, cauliflower, corn, eggplant, lettuce, fresh mushrooms (not canned), onions, green peas, zucchini
- chicken, turkey, tuna fish, eggs
- almonds, cashews (1 oz)
- cheddar chesse, cottage chess (1 oz)
Again this list is NOT exhaustive. For complete info see a dietician, or do an exhaustive Google search eg

### What are good natural stool softners

Fiber Fiber, particularly insoluble fiber, helps keep your bowels moving and creates soft easy-to-pass stools. You need to get 14 grams of fiber in your diet for every 1,000 calories you consume, according to the Colorado State University Extension. For example, an average 2,000-calorie diet requires 28 grams of dietary fiber. Insoluble fiber stays intact in your gut and sweeps out waste. This type of fiber speeds digestion and makes your stools bulky and soft. Soluble fiber slows down digestion and helps nutrients absorb through intestinal walls, but it does not work to soften your stool.
Vegetables Vegetables are a rich source of insoluble fiber to help ease your bowel movements. Celery, corn, salad greens, spinach, peas and green beans are rich in insoluble fiber. These fibrous, chewy vegetables often pass through your digestive tract virtually untouched. You may notice pieces of these vegetables in your stool, since your body is unable to break down the tough insoluble fiber.
Fruits Most fruits are higher in soluble fiber, but eating the tough outer skins of fruits sneaks some insoluble fiber into your diet. Pears, apples, cherries, peaches and plums each have edible skin that adds to your insoluble fiber intake. As an added benefit, the soft inner parts of these fruits provide plenty of soluble fiber to help with nutrient absorption.
Flaxseed Flaxseeds are full of insoluble fiber to help you pass soft bulky stools. You can purchase whole flaxseeds or ground flaxseeds. If you purchase them in their whole state, it is best to grind them in a blender or food processor. Otherwise you will have to work hard to break up the seeds when you chew. Sprinkle ground flaxseeds on your breakfast cereal, cottage cheese or oatmeal as a quick way to sneak more insoluble fiber into your diet.

### Transmission will not shift into high gear

That chocolate cottage cheese may have been transmission fluid mixed in with your engine coolant (transmission cooler in radiator ruptured), which means you could have been getting engine coolant in the transmission. What does the fluid on your transmission dipstick look like? If the transmission fluid is contaminated, it could cause a lot of problems in the transmission. If you suspect this, have a transmission shop check it out. Just changing the transmission fluid will not correct this, as there will be a lot of fluid that doesn't drain out - in the torque converter, valve body, and all the passages and clutches.

### Transmission will not shift into high gear

sounds like the auto oil coolong pipes popped a leak in the radiator

do the auto service and fit the parts
if oil and coolant haven't mixed in the auto itself
over drive clutch set may need a new kit fitted

drive it a bit and see what happens

### I heard that its good to eat cottage cheese before bed. Why is that?

Cottage cheese is actually taken by many bodybuilders right before they go to bed because it contains casein protein, which is a type of protein that digests very slowly. Because it digests slowly, it makes us feel full for a longer period of time.
