recently discovered banana "ice cream". Freeze banana slices then puree. not quite the same texture but it satisfies the cold/sweet craving.

Yesterday I had a craving for ice cream. I get them only once in a while, but I knew that I would regret eating some, so instead I took some of my Greek yogurt out of the fridge, added my lean protein powder to a few spoon fulls, and then put it in a Ziploc bag and cut the corner off. I then put drops of the mixture onto my baking sheet and stuck it in the freezer for about an hour. They were great! Filled me up without all the extra sugar!! And the best part is with the leftovers I just stuck them in a bag to save for another day :)

My new "go to" snack is radishes. They provide the crunch I need and are considered a free food for diabetics.

This is not a recipe, just a general guideline.

For healthy/easy meal ideas, I browse the Lean Couisine/WW Smart Ones in the freezer aisle, writing down ideas and the ingredients listed. I've realized that by keeping a few staples on hand at all times (grilled steak/chicken breast, cooked brown rice, fish, beans) and staying well stocked on veggies and spices/sauces I can duplicate almost any of the frozen entrees at a moment's notice!

No rain, no rainbows.

I cook a big pot of rice and lentils and then package it in 1 and 2 serving packages for the week - 5 cups water, 2 cups brown, whole-grain rice, 1/2 cup lentils, 1 tsp sea salt. Cook it on low for an hour or so. That way, you already have the rice ready and you can just re-heat with a little chicken broth, fruit juice or whatever and fix the rest of the meal. That was always my problem about brown rice, you can't hurry it up; it takes an hour or more.

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men. Colossians 3:23

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

I usually do not eat enough. I need to slowly increase my calories, but I have too many allergies so it seems like I am trapped. This is especially true when I am at school because I am there from 7:50ish to 6 four days a week.

My usual breakfast is Old fashioned Quaker oats made in the microwave (2 minutes) and I usually eat it with a yogurt, kind of mix it by taking a spoonful of oatmeal dipped in the yogurt.If I'm in a hurry I just dump the yogurt into the oatmeal. It's a great combo of protein and carbohydrates.

If I'm out of yogurt I use Polaner all fruit.

LINDA-- between 350-450, depending on what type of cheese you use. When I track, I generally add in the type of cheese i ate, even if SP calories are much higher because they are not using a RF version. It helps me to be able to go back and see what patterns I have so that I can adjust as needed to see better results.

Your breakfast idea sounds tasty--and easy!

Breakfast is usually rolled oats with some sort of protein (either an egg or turkey sausage)

I have 1 ounce of almonds every day for my morning snack. This combined with my breakfast keeps me well-satisfied until lunch.

My favorite snack is stove-popped popcorn. It tastes so much better than the microwavable kind and it is SO much better for you! 1 cup has 55 calories emoticon

Lately my go to dinner is:

Grilled chicken with salt and pepper
sweet potato with a little butter and cinnamon
half cup of unsweetened applesauce
two cups of chopped broccoli
3 cups of fresh spinach
1 plum tomato
a few croutons
raspberry walnut dressing =

Very filling meal under 500 calories that keeps me full until bed. Sometimes I wonder why I used to think that I preferred junk food!

How many calories are in your lunch MISJOSIE?

My favorite breakfast lately:
Thomas' Bagel Thin
1 hard boiled egg, sliced
1 slice American cheese

Heat up in the microwave 30 seconds.

Total 258 calories

This will keep me full until lunchtime!

I didn't see a thread for this on this team yet, and I loved getting all the new ideas during the Christmas challenge.

Currently, I am going through a flatbread phase--here is today's lunch...

1/4 cup 3 pepper and onion blend (I buy these frozen at Kroger for a dollar a bag)
1/4 cup RF cheese (i use swiss)
3 oz chicken breast, grilled or baked (i season with cumin, garlic and pepper and bake or grill with the peppers)
Slice chicken into strips, top with cheese and pepper blend and wrap in flatbread. Grill for 2-3 mins till cheese melts. Tastes like a chicken philly!
