My favorite brkfst: old fashioned Quaker oatmeal w/ 1 tblsp of natural peanut butter (the chunky one for a crunch), 1 tblsp of flaxseed meal, and a few raisins for sweetness.

A quick "whatever time of the day" meal: 2-3 eggwhites, 1 slice of cheese (american or cheddar), 1-2 slices of whole wheat toast (depending on how many carbs I have left for the day)

A quick dinner in my home is: whole wheat pasta, turkey meatballs, meat sauce that I season to taste.

My favorite quick snack #2: 2 slices of whole wheat bread, deli style turkey breast, 1 slice of cheese (swiss, meunster, american, or whichever Im in the mood for), and sometimes mustard if I'm in the mood. I'll accompany this with a piece of fruit, a few nuts (cashews or almonds), or mini bag of popcorn and I'm set for a few hours!

My little one's favorite wkend brkfst:
1 whole wheat tortilla/wrap, egg whites, 1 slice of cheese, turkey bacon, lettuce & tomato. No dressing or mayo or anything...the cheese & tomato make it a bit juicy in my opinion. My 6 yr old loves when I make these before running out for errands on Saturdays.

peanut butter banana sandwiches are my fave breakfast. It's full of protein so you stay full for a long time. Just make sure to measure the peanut butter cuz that fat can add up.

I LOVE to make spaghetti with turkey meatballs if I'm short on time...I get the barilla plus pasta, cook it, get turkey meatballs and simmer them in the spaghetti sauce - usually bertolli garlic and herb, with extra oregano (one of my favorite spices). When it's all done, put it on a plate, and serve with shredded parm. cheese and garlic bread (optional).

Another thing that I tried and everybody loved, was I took egg noodles (the skinnier ones), cook them per directions on package. Get the steam in the bag corn and make that. Get a jar of cheese sauce (I think there's a reduced fat version) from Ragu and also a package of lite kielbasa sausage (or any other favorite sausage). Heat up the sausage in a skillet...when noodles are done and corn is done, put together with the sausage (can cut up into bite size pieces) and then put the cheese sauce in and mix it all together and serve. It's YUMMY and very quick.

1 lb of lean ground meat (beef, chicken, turkey)
OR 1 large can white chicken meat (rinsed)
1 cup instant brown rice, or 2 cups leftover cooked brown rice
2 cups frozen veggies (or more if you like)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
OR 1/4 cup crumbled feta (I like the fat-free type)

cook the meat in a non-stick skillet & drain excess fat. Add the rice & veggies (if using dry rice, also add water as recommended on package), cover and simmer until rice is done. Add parmesan or feta and stir well.

It's delicious and can be different every time, and it's super quick & easy!

I get those Louis De Kamps crab delights...(imitation crab, but its pollock so its real fish) and I leave them in the package and steam them in the microwave for 2 minutes. I cook wheat pasta, mix in I cant believe its not butter, low fat grated parmesean cheese and then add the crab and its sooo yummy and quick!

Or I will make turkey bacon, eggs and an english muffin and make a sandwich.

Thanks, Amanda.... I forgot to mention the 1 tsp or so of soy sauce I add, but you could use the low sodium soy sauce to keep the sodium down.... (The peanut butter is an old trick from the dining hall at college--they gave us woks and we could stir fry stuff from the salad bar at them, but the peanut butter was what added flavour!)

Stir fry, definitely.

Chicken or pork.
A bag of the pre-mixed stir fry veg.
Two teaspoons of olive oil (or less).
After everything is cooked, I put some peanut butter and chili flakes in the bottom of the wok and let it melt a bit and then stir the meat and veg in.

I serve it on noodles or brown rice. It's good stuff and full of vegetables.
