Two recipes that I like and are easy to fix.
#1: Cut up chicken into chunks while you let some olive oil heat in a skillet. Place chicken into skillet and lightly salt, pepper and add some parsley and orageno once the juices from the chicken begin to gather into the bottom of the skillet. Stir periodically. While chicken is cooking, in sauce pan add some spinach pasta or whole wheat pasta and cook as box directs. When chicken is browned on all sides, pour a bag of thawed frozen mixed veggies in with a 3 tbs of water and stir. When pasta is ready drain water out and pour pasta into skillet.
#2: Cut chicken into chunks or can leave whole, can bake in over but I preferr in skillet. When chicken is close to being done, add can of diced italian seasoned tomatoes and let chicken finish cooking while tomatoes heat. In sauce pan cook penne noodles per box directions, drain off water and add to chicken mix.
#3: Season chicken with salt and pepper and bake in oven with a spray of olive oil on pan. In sauce pan heat substitue water with low sodium chicken broth using amount required for amount of rice you need for serving. As heats, add parsley, orageno, basil,rosemary, thyme and garlic. When boiling add rice and cook time required per box and let set with cover on pan. When chicken is close to being done, add seasoned diced tomatoes to pan and let heat as chicken finishes. Place seasoned rice onto plate then place chicken on top with tomatoes scooped up on top. Can add a light sprinkle of shredded cheese or parmesan cheese.

Freeze a banana (no peel)for about 20 minutes. Then put it in the food processor with strawberries or another kind of berry. Blend away. It's like soft serve and so tasty. You can also add yogurt to it. If you don't have a food processor you can blend it with a spoon, just mash it up!

Well can understand what you're going through. My dad had same issue. The following are some idea's and if you like any of them, send me private reply and I'll give you the full recipes rather than take up so much room here.
Scrambled egg whites using no salt butter or one of the many diet butters out there, with finely chopped up spinach added to the eggs and low fat milk or cream in the eggs and can add finely diced tomatoes cooked before until soft before add in egg mix.
Irish oatmeal with no salt butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and cream.
French Toast without edges cut off.
Strawberries mushed then added into yogart or cottage cheese
Banana's mushed and milk poured in with a little cinnamon to add flavor and heat. Is like a breakfast soup.

In Response To: Rec: Smoothies (by Jacey Reynolds)
I have some GREAT smoothie recipes using Splenda for sweetener:
1 c. skim milk 7-9 ice cubes (depending how thick you like it) 1 tsp vanilla 3 or 4 fresh or frozen strawberries 1-1/2 tsp. unsweetened baking cocoa Approx. 8 or 9 packets Splenda (it sounds like a lot, but you need it to overpower the bitterness of the cocoa and vanilla)
Put all ingredients in blender until all ice is crushed. This one is yummy!
1 c. skim milk 7-9 ice cubes 1 tsp vanilla a few drops of orange extract approx 7-8 packets Splenda
put it all in the blender and enjoy! Tastes just like an orange creamsicle!
