    Default Breakfast and lunch ideas

    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to this and just getting ready to get started. I have many dinner ideas but I am having a hard time coming up with fast and easy breakfast and lunch ideas. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks

    When in a hurry I like 3/4 cup cheerios 3 points, with 1/4 cup skim milk 1 point and a banana 1 point for 5 points.
    Also scrambled egg has 3 points. make toast out of my light wheat that one slice has no points, spray it with I can't believe its not butter, sprinkle with 1/2 packet of splenda and sprinkle with cinnamon. 4 point breakfast

    For lunch I pack salad to take to work. One thing I have learned is put you dressing in the bowl and then salad on top. Don't stir until ready to eat. I ususally top this with leftover chicken breast, or canned tuna.

    Hope this helps!

    I am addicted to thomas light muffins toasted with reduced fat Peanut Butter. I use the Peanut butter sparingly but the results are that it is a filling breakfast. muffin=1 pt, PB 2 tbls=5 6 point breakfast that sticks to your ribs!

    Eggo lite wheat waffles (1 pt each) with Boca brand sausage (1 pt each) links 1/4 cup lite syrup (2 pts) MMMM good. I eat 2 waffles and links and use 1/4 cup syrup so only 6 points!

    I also just tried Boca Burger-flamed grilled flavored and MMMMmmmm! Put that on a light wheat roll with ff cheese & some onionand I am a happy happy camper!

    I second the eggbeaters. I take 1/2 cup of eggbeaters which is 1 point and make an omelette and two of the thomas's english muffins (light ones) that are one point a piece, and put jelly on the english muffins. They I cut the omelette in half and put one half on each of the muffins with jelly. Yummy andi it's only 4 points.

    I used to love the thomas lite english muffins, but they don't carry them in Southern California any more. I even emailed them to find a location near me and they sent me a letter in the mail to tell me there is no store in my area that carries them.

    My favorite low point breakfast is WW Vanilla puffed Cereal 1 point for 1 cup. I top it with a cup of blueberries and a cup of milk and I have a very filling 4 point breakfast.

    What in the world is icbinb? I've been trying to figure this out but I'm stumped.

    I can't believe it's not butter.

    On Sunday I prepare my breakfast for the week, put in baggies and freeze or fridge till needed. I toast 1 pt english muffins and add an egg beater egg and sometimes a piece of bacon for either 2 or 3 pts. This week I am having 3 pt breakfast burritos (southwestern egg beaters, 2 pt tortilla and salsa).
