you can make one meal and add meat to your families meal and no meat to your meals (like spaghetti and tomato sauce adding meat to your families sauce and you have tomato sauce)

You can also make yourself several soups, stir fry, etc and freeze them and them when you make your family a meal you can just heat up your meal.

Remember rather your family eats meat or not they still need to eat their veggies so don't feel bad about serving them veggies.

I think your also asking about protein for all meal so here are some sites with great info

I'm put greens in my oatmeal before too with some soy sausage. Oats are a grain and don't have to be sweet to be tasty. emoticon

Jules, that pureed butternut squash or pumpkin with maple syrup or cinnamon sounds good. I never thought of veggies like that for breakfast!

PB2 is dried peanutbutter and it is good in almost anything. Its great to add to oatmeal or yogurt. You could also try some blueberries, pureed butternut squash with a little maple syrup, or some pureed pumpkin and some cinnamon.

My favorite breakfast(s) though is a big bowl of fruit. Tons of fiber and plenty of protein.

Dear Bookworm,

I prefer the "old fashioned" yogurt, too, but it's hard to find, now. In our town, the only non-Greek yogurt I can get is Daisy brand. It is an excellent product with no "non real yogurt additives. You can mix any fruit in yogurt from apples to oranges. Raisins and sliced or slivered almonds mixed in is also good. If you want to sweeten it up a bit, you can add a teaspoon of sugar or honey.

In oatmeal, I mix sugar, brown sugar, or honey and, again, any fruit such as apples, raisins, pears, or pineapple tastes good in oatmeal.

Unless I eat protein, I'm starving 1/2 hour to an hour after eating breakfast. If I eat nothing for breakfast, I don't feel hungry, but if I put one thing in my tummy, I get very hungry shortly afterwards. I usually always eat breakfast, though. I also eat nut butters on toast or eat an egg and/or drink milk. Peanut butter in oatmeal tastes good as well. I like cheddar cheese on tortillas, which I put into the microwave to melt the cheese. Peanut butter and banana, or pineapple, raisin, or apple, sandwiches are good, too.

Smoothies: but that's for another day.

I hope these ideas help you with your breakfast planning.

I rely upon dried peas, beans and tofu for protein.

I seem to be in a rut. I'm a lacto-ovo vegetarian. I'm the only vegetarian in my family; I also cook for a dh and two teen sons who want meat, and my schedule this year has been pretty nutty so cooking two different meals has been tough. I've started relying a lot on black bean burgers, greek yogurt to get my protein, but I want something less processed than the burgers but still healthy, and also I have a hard time with the tartness of the plain Greek yogurt, but my favorite add-ins (raspberries) are getting tough to find now. So then I switch to the flavored stuff--less protein, more sugar. I'd rather eat plain, but what can I put in my yogurt? Any ideas for pumping up my comfort-food cold-weather oatmeal with bananas and strawberries? I am currently craving that, but it's not very high protein.
