    Some great ideas. I bought some "Irish" oatmeal, next I'm going to look for some flax seeds.
  • I eat tuna in the packages. 18 grams of protein and 80 calories. Great power food.
  • I don't do the canned soups --- way too much sodium in most of them, so I make large pots of soup, put into smaller containers and freeze for when I want soup. I do keep frozen berries in the freezer and freeze bananas, frozen veggies are always in my freezer too! Trying to add more whole grains to my diet, oats and flaxseeds are always in my house, only eat fiber one or all bran cereal, tuna and yogurt are always in my house too! Looks like I am off to a good start!
  • I always have frozen veggies and blueberries on hand.
  • Make yourself (and your health) a priority in your life.
  • Opted for pasta w/chicken, 2 wings and cheese. Trying to get my proteins up but I know when to give and some times I do not. These are some good tips on trying to buy prepackaged. Not all prepackaged are created equally so learn to read those labels.

    God bless,

    Not sure what is wrong! EVERYTHING I eat sours on my stomach. Feels like soapy dishwater in my stomach! Not sure how I know this never drank dishwater.
  • I like to keep packaged foods to a minimum for me and my family. However the foods on this list are relatively healthy so I don't mind buying them.
  • Don't use many prepacked foods because it's so easy to freeze most fruits and veggies at home but when it came to fiber bars I am a rehabbed junkie. There's a reason the popular ones taste so good - I still buy them, but now I cut each one into 4-6 pieces and keep it in the fridge.
  • I use many canned foods, chickpeas, beans, lentils, etc. and Healthy Choice soups. I also use unsweetened frozen blueberries and raspberries in my smoothies. They help so much with my meal planning. Thank you.
  • Instead of ice cream. I have tried Fage Greek yogurt with fruit. It works!
  • Just a couple of extras to add - already peeled hard cooked eggs and already bagged salad stuff can help a lot when harried. The eggs make a great addition to salads or quick pick me up, high protein snack when rushing from one thing to another.
  • We are trying to avoid soy. Why do they sneak it into tuna?
