I like making home made soups packed with veggies. Or a bean chili made with ground turkey.

today for lunch I had a dish of garbanzo beans, lentils, tomatoes, tofu, and shredded carrots simmered in a small amount of broth with curry and other indian spices. It was delicious.

Quinoa loaded up with onions, mushrooms, spinach, almonds, and either a cheese or meat. This is good both heated or cold.

Left-over stirfry from the night before (or left-over whatever you had for dinner).

Big bowl of lightly steamed broccoli and / or cauliflower, with some shredded cheese, and smothered in marinara sauce (or any tomato sauce - I like mine loaded up with onions, mushrooms, carrots, celery, and a ton of spices, so I make a huge batch and freeze in single portions to heat and put over whatever I'm in the mood for).

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.

Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.

Get checked!

Half a cup of a chicken breast, marinated in lite Balsamic Vinaigrette and grilled. With grilled bell peppers and onions. Throw in a little Feta Cheese. I used an Oroweat pocket thin, (100 calories) to make it a pita sandwich.

*chili --heats up really well if you freeze individual servings

*soup --something hearty like a broccoli potato soup would be good with whole grain toast

*fruit salad with a cup of greek yogurt and an ounce of nuts

*pasta salad with ww pasta, italian dressing, artichoke hearts, kidney beans, tomatoes, and grilled/baked chicken/salmon or tofu --eaten cold. Or you can use marinara sauce for a hot variation.

*rotisserie chicken--shredded into taco meat or made into enchiladas

*brown rice bowl with stir fry veggies, chicken/tofu, and homemade or low sugar teriyaki sauce

Regaining my pre-wedding body! Running, lifting, clean eating, lots of water and patience. Those are the tools that I will use to get there.

I make a regular meal on the weekends for throughout the week. This week, it's chicken "taquitos" with baby carrots and a small banana (or other fruit). Last week was sweet potato and chicken hash and carrots.

Some of my standbys:

-1 c. fat free cottage cheese, a fruit (Strawberries, melon, pineapple, grapes) and a veggie (baby carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber slices)
-mini turkey meatloafs, a veggie and a fruit
-chicken stirfry and brown rice
-chicken sausage and sauerkraut skillet
-small twice baked potatoes with turkey sausage and broccoli

A lot of them are recipies from Eatingwell. I also keep reduced fat cheese sticks and other portion controlled snacks at the office for that 2:30-3:00 pm hunger. I don't expect lunch to last me until I get home at 6-6:30.

I like black beans topped with salsa on a corn tortilla. You can add cheese or sour cream, or even plain (not vanilla) yogurt.

My Sparkpage is set to private, but I'm open to SparkMail!

A little tuna salad, or Chicken Salad, lettuce - 0 carbs

1 Pork Chop 200 calories, 1/4 Head of Cabbage with butter and caraway seeds, unlimited green beans with 1 tsp. of sesame seeds for crunch and cholesterol health.

How about 2 taco's about 110 calories for both...fill with shredded lettuce and you choice of scrambled egg whites & onions, tuna tacos, salmon tacos, chopped tomatoes or salsa, and a dollop of sour cream....
