Soup is a good one and there are a lot of low calorie, low sodium brands out there.

I LOVE cucumber sandwiches in the summer. Lite bread and mayo, thin sliced cucumbers and a dash of salt. Yum!

carrot sticks and dip, a spelt tortilla with chicken, olive oil mayo, red pepper and lettuce, as well as a cup of soup.

I'm a three meals, no snacks kind of person.

I'm having a big tossed salad loaded with 0 point veggies. (according to Weight Watchers plan) I'm going to add some tofu, beans and avocado, a couple tsp Paul Newman Italian dressing and an orange for dessert.

Today: Smartones and an orange- I almost never have time to make a lunch. Im not on WW but I love their micro-meals.**

Sometimes when I have time I will make a yummy garden salad with tofu or avocado and light ranch dressing (i mix the light ranch w/ vinegar to make it even more light). with an orange, of course.

**for all the people thinking/about to say I should be making a big meal and freezing the leftovers instead of buying the micro-meals - I am single so large meal prep is not practical for me and if there are leftovers, I WILL eat them. This works for me.

I make a lasagna - rice noodles, fat free ricotta, skim mozzerella, simple tomato sauce, and a mix of organic veggies and tofu for the "meat." I separate it into one-cup plastic containers and freeze. Super easy to re-heat and super tasty!

I cook ahead as well. My workplace is air-conditioned so that I'm freezing all day and want something hot! I have the 1-cup serving savers, so it's easy to get the portion sizes right. Also, my lunches aren't large because I have morning and afternoon snacks.

Today I am going to have a half-cup of boneless, skinless chicken breast in a half cup of "sauce" that I made with onions, tomatos, and hot curry powder.

Yesterday I wasn't so prepared and had a can of Amy's lentil soup.

The day before that I think I had a cup of rice/beans/veggie mix -- not a lot of protein in that one.
