Another thing I do is cook a couple chicken breast on Sunday and weight them to be 3 oz each and then package it a sandwich bag, then I can add it to a salad, sandwich, or heated as side dish topped with salsa or cheese. I try to make meals on Sunday like the chicken, granola bars ect... so I don't have to during the week.

I make overnight oatmeal and grab it and go in the morning, it fills me up till lunch. Lunch is normally a turkey wrap or a Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwich with an apple, and maybe some chips. Dinner, quick is picking up a rotissieri chicken, eating the breast meat with a side of veggies, and a carb, say a piece of wheat bread.
Breakfast Sandwich: 1/2 cup EggBeaters, scrambled 1 slice of 2% cheddar cheese 1 whole wheat sandwich thin 1 slice of turkey bacon (cooked in nonstick skillet) Assemble to make a sandwich. It's about 255 calories.
Add yogurt (about 90 calories) and fruit and it will be about 400 calories.
Some people make these sorts of sandwiches ahead of time and freeze them. I've read that they microwave well after freezing, but I've never tried it.
Nut Butter Oatmeal -1/2 cup old-fashioned oatmeal -1 cup nonfat milk
Microwave in a large bowl for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then, stir in a little Splenda (if you'd like) and 1 TBSP of a nut butter (peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter...). It's about 320-330 calories. Add a piece of fruit (like an orange) and it will be about 400 calories.
Hummus, grilled chicken and veggies on a wrap! 250-400 calories depending on what you add!

Hi there! I'll weigh in on 400-cal breakfasts, since breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I like the Egg Mugs from the Hungry Girl website, but I deviate from her recipe a bit. I usually make mine with 1/3 c. Egg Beaters, 1 egg, 2 wedges of Laughing Cow cheese and 3 slices of turkey bacon. Sometimes I'll have a bit of fruit with breakfast, too, and the combination works about to about 400 cals, give or take. Enjoy!
