    I like to make a parfait. I use 8 oz light yogurt (2 points), 1/2 cup lite frozen sliced strawberries, thawed (1 point), and either 1/2 cup Health Valley Real Oat Bran (3 points) or 1/2 cup Post Grape-Nuts (3 points). It's huge and keeps me going till lunch.

    Yes. I am basically looking for things somewhat fast. I have some time to eat but not a lot.

    I have done egg beaters and a Light English Muffin or the FF waffles.

    Also, I am running out of ideas for dinner. I am basically eating a lot of frozen meals, because I do not have time to make dinner most nights. That gets expensive so I am having a hard time being able to "afford" eating healthy. You never really realize how cheap "Junk Food" is until you really need to buy healthy. I have made a couple homemade meals when I do have the chance and freeze them but that is not often.

    Any weight I am losing now is between following the diet and not being able to afford food. Not really funny but at least I am losing weight.

    Suggestions on Cheap meals?

    Breakfast sand...
    2 slices of Aunt Hautties lite bread(1 point)
    slice of 2% cheese(1 point)
    ff Turkey 2 slices (.5 points)
    Egg whites 1 large or 2 small (.5 points)

    There you have it a three point breakfast, and if you are in a hurry forego the eggwhites and add some extra turkey!

    Sometime I will have these for lunch also...Just add salsa!

    Hi Kitkat [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img]

    I'm not home much so I don't have time to cook either. Do you have a crockpot? There are some great crockpot recipes posted on this website. I love coming home from work/school and having dinner already made.

    Also, pre-packaged meals are expensive, healthy or not. It's best to use coupons when they are on sale and stock up. But, you can also buy chicken breasts in a large package and freeze them individually. Check out all the recipe pages/posts on this website. I have found many, many recipes there.

    Hope this helps. Post again if you need more ideas.

    Some easy, cheap ways to eat healthy:
    -Make a big pot of WW 0-point soup each weekend (or once a month make a quadruple batch and freeze). Soup and a sandwich is a decent, fast dinner.
    -Canned soups are fast and nutritious. There are types available for 2pts per cup (look for low fat cream soups, lentil/bean soups, vegetable soups). Some canned soups are high sodium, so watch out for that if sodium bothers you
    -Make chili or stew, freeze leftovers in 1-serving containers. (See vegetarian chili recipes for a 2 point/cup recipe I posted that is super easy and yummy). These can be done in a crockpot too
    -Omelettes make a great dinner. I like eggbeaters with mushrooms, onions and feta cheese. You could add low fat deli ham or bacon as well.
    -Baked potatoes done in the microwave served with FF sour cream or salsa are a good small meal or side dish (don't forget to ***** with a fork to stop them from exploding )
    -Veggie burgers (some Boca's are 1 point) are a favourite fast meal for me. My favourite is the low fat Boca on a light bun with a cheese slice and some sauteed mushrooms and onions. It takes 10 minutes and it is soooo yummy.
    -Pita bread pizzas: put some tomato sauce on a pita bread, top w lots of veggies and low fat meat if you like. Sprinkle on some cheese and broil until bubbly. Buy the shredded part-skim mozzarella (you can keep the cheese in the freezer so it will last longer).

    I'm a vegetarian, but if you aren't then you can do a lot of easy things with chicken breasts. Buy the boneless ones in bulk when they are on sale. Marinate in FF italian dressing, or light teriyaki sauce, and grill/broil them all at once. Package up in individual serving sizes. Freeze and keep for quick dinners:

    -Frozen bags of mixed stirfry veggies with chicken breast and some teriyaki/soy sauce over quick-cook rice
    -Thaw and heat chicken breast in microwave, place in a soft tortilla with salsa, any fresh veggies you like (I like peppers, tomato, lettuce and cucumber) and add some FF sourcream. A great 7 point meal (or less depending on tortilla brand). You can also do this with beans (I buy the fat-free refried bean mix that you just add boiling water to).
    -Heat and serve over a big salad (w low fat Caesar dressing and bacon bits for example)

    I hope that helps!
