Thank you for the ideas. :)

I have been trying to work out dinnertime meals so that there are leftovers, but it doesn't always happen.

The result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.

I saw this post a couple of days ago and thought I had responded, but I don't see it so I guess I hit the wrong button (again) and it disappeared.........

I think some recent studies have shown that it is ok to eat an egg a day.

Some other ideas may be: ==

a small handful of nuts
an ounce of cheddar cheese (aim for low fat versions.)
1/4 cup cottage cheese
Any leftover roast, chicken, etc for the previous evenings dinner.
tuna, canned in water

The thing is, you don't have to have only breakfast foods at breakfasttime. When I was working I used to frequently make 2 portions the night before so I could have something for my breakfast or lunch the next day...

I used to have a great link to the Mayo Clinic exchange lists and it had some great ideas on proteins acceptable for diabetic meal planning. I just tried to go there and see the site has been totally changed and I cannot find the lists anymore. Do your own search and see what results you get.....

Failing that, it would be a big help to buy a book that lists all the Carb, fat and Protein content of most foods. I have not had to look at these for some time so not sure what is out there currently, but I am sure one of the big book stores (Barnes & Noble, Amazon, etc) should show what is available.

I wish you much success and please keep in touch and let us know what you find out.

I am at a huge loss as to eat for breakfast...I shouldn't eat eggs every day because of the cholesterol, but I am getting SO tired of egg whites!
As things are right now, I have a hard time getting in my minimum calories and am dropping weight pretty rapidly...not that I don't need to lose, but it is worrisome how fast it is going.

I've tried peanut butter also, but I don't want to over-do that because of the fat.

Help?
