I poach batches of skinless boneless chicken to add to pasta dishes, salads or sandwiches. You can add spices to the liquid to make it tasty. You can also poach fish. Poaching is simmering in water...look up recipies online. It eliminates the need to add oil when cooking meat.

I LOVE poached eggs for breakfast and a fast and easy way to poach them is in the microwave. I get a bowl and fill it about 1/3 with water and heat it for 2 minute in the microwave. I then crack open two eggs into the water and microwave for another minute. Once done, I gently pour out excess water and then add salt and pepper to taste. YUM!
I especially love poached eggs over quinoa and herbs or mixed with crumbled saltines.
Whenever I eat protein, like a soy patty or lean turkey sausage, with my bkfst, as opposed to whole grain cereal/oatmeal and fruit, I am fuller and more satisfied longer. Both types of meals are still 300 calories, but I am more satisfied with protein. It helps me stay on track.
