A cup of Special K cereal with skim milk and a banana. Or a bowl of instant oatmeal and some fruit.
Light Campbell’s soup with a small sugar-free Jell-O and some fruit.
Lots of fish and chicken with plenty of greens along side.
Snacks or Mini Meals:
Fruits, vegetables, sugar-free Jell-O, pretzels, tuna or anything light. I cut out all white pasta and white breads and switched to whole wheat or whole grain and light or fat-free everything.
