I love your little turtle pic, SLOLOSER emoticon

That tuna salad sounds good....I like tuna and chicken salads with fruit when I eat out but don't make it at home like that. I need to start doing that. Get my fruit in plus save on the calories.

Kashi makes a good frozen pizza with lots of veggies. I also like the Lean Cuisine Mushroom pizza for a quick fix but I add turkey pepperoni when I want meat.

I think I go through phases for breakfast.

In the winter I eat a lot of oatmeal. My favorite is probably apple cinnamon oatmeal. I cut up a real apple and add it to my regular oatmeal. For variety I will try other fruits. Bananas are really good too.

Sometimes I will mix my oatmeal with yogurt too.

I like omelettes. I will do hip flexors while the eggs cook.

I am experimenting with roll ups - a variation of an omelette.

Like the others, I mostly do leftovers for lunch. However, I do have a few favorites for days when there are no leftovers.

- Best tuna salad (contains an apple - got the recipe here on SP) (I haven't had this in a long time. Thanks for asking!)
- Pizza ( I have some frozen ones that I like, good for a quick fix. The calorie count on this brand is really good.)

If I'm home for lunch, a stir fry is a good quick solution for lunch.

I like cheerios with frozen blueberries and skim milk. Also like scrambled eggs or oatmeal with a little brown sugar and cinnamon. For lunch I love tuna burgers( take a can of cream of mushroom soup and mix with one can of tuna. Lightly butter 2 peices of bread and sandwich about a 1/4 of the tuna mixture. bake until lightly toasted and hot.

I love egg mugs! They're quick and easy. Oatmeal is another favorite with berries and Almond milk; it's very good.
Some other ideas: Greek yogurt or cottage cheese with fruit. I add Truvia or honey or sometimes vanilla to the yogurt. A boiled egg some wheat toast and fruit. Fruit smoothies help me get my daily fruit servings.

I also take leftovers from the night before for lunch. I have a refrigerator at work so I leave a bag of frozen veggies there and eat off of it all week to supplement whatever protein I bring or add a salad.

During the work week I tend to stick to the quick and simple breakfast options such as Thomas Bagel Thins or frozen waffles. Other fairly quick and simple options are oatmeal bowls and Egg Beaters. Oatmeal can be made in a million varieties. The same goes for scrambled eggs. You can add just about anything.

I highly recommend checking out the book Hungry Girl: 300 Under 300. Most of the recipes are quick and easy and single servings. Also, there are tons of oatmeal bowl recipes along with "egg mug" recipes which consist of microwaving Egg Beaters and adding various mix ins.

I usually bring leftovers for my lunch, but if you don't cook much or don't have much time there are several good frozen meal options. I highly recommend Lean Cuisines and Kashi brand frozen meals. They are some of the lower calorie and lower sodium frozen meal options. Plus, they are delicious! :)

Hope that helps! Good luck!
