    For breakfast Veggie egg white scramble with mushrooms, onions, and red peppers. Adding a little laughing cow cheese gives it a creamier texture! Add some blackberries and/or strawberries!

    For lunch, a simple stir fry with broccoli, snow peas, and carrots. I cook my vegetables in a little chicken broth to soften them a bit and then sauté them in a little olive oil (one tsp for 3 servings) plus fresh ginger, fresh garlic, and a little reduced sodium soy sauce. Quick, easy, tasty and filling. You can add some tofu for protein.

    My new favorite thing is blended extra firm tofu with dip mix (usually spinach), then I sauté it with chopped frozen spinach (thawed in the pan) to thicken it. I use this as a filling for sheets of phyllo to make hand pies. One sheet of phyllo for 1/2 cup filling. They have about 110 calories each and are inexpensive. I also use it as a cheese substitue for plant based lasagna. Using eggplant as the noodles. My lasagna has about 120 calories in a one cup square.

    Like the poster above said. I also always have a big stir fry with leeks, mushrooms, and other veggies that look good at the store. Savoy cabbage is one of my favorites. I use a little wine/sesame oil (1/2 Tbsp)/ and some soy sauce to sauté. If you want something other than just veggies, try adding some shiratake noodles. Just rinse them very well.

    Thai red curry w/ eggplant and fresh basil. Sometimes I throw some green beans in, mushrooms, whatever's good and in the fridge. For breakfast lately I've made a good casserole of egg, kale, and feta cheese w/ some Tony's cajun seasoning. It's awesome and it covers breakfast for the week; I got it from Kaylyn's Kitchen blog.
