I would be happy to exchange/give/receive recipes that are healthy and low to moderate in calories. I eat simply. Breakfast is a piece of whole wheat toast with 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter (low salt) and a Banana along with a cup of coffee. Lunch is eaten out 4 days a week and sometimes 5 days a week. It varies from oatmeal with craisins and granola to Mexican food to a half sandwich with fruit or a cup of soup. Dinner is usually fish a couple of times per week, chicken one or two times a week, salads almost every day, and beef very rarely. I also like to make low fat muffins for a change at breakfast time or a quick snack - banana, applesauce and applebutter with cocoa and mini choclote chips, and I am about to try a new recipe for blueberry muffins. I love Greek Yogurt and sometimes use 1/4 cup of yogurt over 1/4 cup of cereal and add 1 tablespoon each of either cherries or craisins and slivered almonds. If I'm really in a hurry for a snack, I eat a peanut butter and oatmeal fiber bar. I need to start tracking my calories and will get out my calorie book and start doing that this week.
