Today's sandwich is a SparkRecipe: grilled cheese pizza sandwich, starting with my 60 calorie slices of multi-grain bread, I used Newman's Own spaghetti sauce, mozzarella & parmesan cheeses, then added grilled veggies (onions, baby bellas), roasted red peppers, Italian seasonings & put sandwich in pan with no oil or butter--still browns! (who knew?)

Feel like a hot dog? How about a healthy choice of turkey or chicken dogs (if they're considered healthy). For me, I had a vegetarian Smart Dog on a whole grain, 110 calorie hot dog bun by Healthy Life, topped with ketchup & onions. Surround it with pickle, veggie (I had steamed cabbage) & fruit & you've got yourself a complete, healthy meal.

This was yesterday's lunch: hummus sandwich & miso soup.
Sandwich has 2T hummus, onions, lettuce, tomato & roasted red peppers on a ww sandwich thin. Miso soup is veggie broth, scallions, baby bellas & 1T miso w/little Braggs (healthy version of soy sauce). Plus the sides: pickle, baby carrots & strawberries. And I was STUFFED after this healthy meal!

This is strawberries & greens, a recipe I adapted from one served at a restaurant in TX. I replaced blue cheese with feta, since I donít like it. And you can use any kind of greens--I usually use spinach & combo of red & green leaf lettuce.
Feta 1 oz
Strawberries, fresh 1/4-1/2 c halves
Onions, sliced thin 1/8-1/4 c
Spinach 2 cups
Red/green leaf lettuce 2 cups
Pecans 5 halves, chopped
Raspberry Walnut 2 tbsp
Nutrients are for the higher quantities of strawberries & onions
