Breakfast - 1 cup Frozen berries (defrosted of course) mixed with 1/2 cup NF yogurt. 1/4 cup Grape Nuts granola optional

Lunch - Lean Cuisine Lemon Garlic Shrimp Pasta -350 calories. I've tried a lot of microwave dinners, this by far is my fav.
Another good one is Baja Fresh Chicken Tortilla Soup -320 calories

Dinner - Thai Chicken Noodle Salad - Includes bell pepper, cucumbers, carrots, cubed chicken and angel hair pasta in a peanut Thai sauce. Very yummy.

Breakfast: (I usually make 4 servings at a time to keep mornings a little smoother)

- High fiber english muffin, poached egg, FF cheese, 1 oz lean peppered turkey (260)

- Egg beaters (1/2 cup), 1/2 piece TJ's apple chicken sausage, peppers, mushrooms, onions, spinach, zuchinni w/small sprinkle LF cheese, 2 Tbsp FF sr cream and 2 Tbsp hot picante - (~250-270 cals)

Lunch: I almost always have soup at lunch - especially ones full of veggies and/or beans for the fiber. Eating something warm just pyschologically fills me up. However I try to mix up with I have with it to keep things interesting.

1 cup soup (not a heavy cream-based one)
AND 1 of the following:
1 sandwich (2 35-cal pieces of lite bread and 1 LF swiss cheese slice, 2 oz lunch meat and then lettuce, few onions and slice of tomatoe)
OR
1/2 - 1 cup fruit (depending on what the fruit is) w/ 1/2 cup FF cottage cheese or 0% Fage greek yogurt
OR
wraps - La Torilla Factory low carb wrap w/spinach, lean meat, peppers, carrots, zuchinni, cucumbers, tomatoes, mushrooms, sprouts, etc (anything crisp and chopped)

Dinner:
Generally I keep this simple

Porcini-crusted chicken ternderloins w/brocolli in a soy/hoisin sauce (very flavorful sauce - a little goes a looong way and use low-sodium soy sauce)

spiced basa or sole w/tomatoe ginger salsa and roasted asparagus

Risotto (I make sure to measure this so I am only eating 1 serving) w/peppers, asparagus, snap peas, artichoke hearts. I flavor the broth with a little lemon zest and garlic mustard, and I don't finish it with oil or butter as many recipes direct. Maybe a little sprinkling of fresh grated parmesan on top. A single serving of risotto doesn't look like much til you pack it full of veggies then suddenly it's a gourmet meal. Spricy prawns or scallops go really well with this.
