What I eat: Part #1- Breakfast and Lunch

It's been awhile since I have let you guys in on what I eat. The truth is, most of what I eat now through the week is pretty much the same things. breakfast is usually:

a Nature Valley crunchy granola bar in either Peanut Butter or Roasted Almond (5 PointsPlus), plus a banana (0 PointsPlus). This will usually get me through to lunch time, but sometimes I'm hungry again and will eat a second piece of fruit to tide me over.

For lunch I have one of two options: Wasa crisp n' light (6 slices for 3 PointsPlus), fat free refried beans (1/2 cup for 2 PointsPlus), 1 tsp EVOO (1 teaspoon for 1 PointsPlus), salsa (0 PointsPlus). I will mix the beans with the salsa and EVOO and use it as a dip for the crackers.

The second meal I have sometimes, if I'm feeling more sweet than salty, is:
an Arnold sandwich thin (1 sandwich thin for 3 PointsPlus), Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter in "White Chocolate Wonderful" (1 tablespoon for 3 PointsPlus), and some grapes on the side (0 PointsPlus).

I will come back later and let you know what I eat for snacks, for dinner, and what I eat on the weekends (which varies almost every week!).

I'm glad you posted this! I've been eating the same breakfast for nearly a year and have been wanting a change for the last few months. I've been having trouble brain-storming vegan breakfasts that will keep me full for most of the morning.

I love these kind of posts!

I might have to try some of your menu for a week and see where I get with it. If I'm losing with what I'm doing now I would think I'd double that with what you are eating. It is so clean and healthy. Do you eat this every day for breakfast/lunch?

Amanda- I eat this most week days. I still am planning a new post to show what I usually eat on the weekends! Of course, this is all about to change for the 23rd, 24th, and 25th. I'm giving myself permission to eat "off-plan" for those days, otherwise I'll beat myself up afterwards! Still planning to track, just not going to worry about the GHGs.
