That sounds delicious!

Cutting way back on bread and sweets has helped me drop 35 pounds since the end of February. Keep paying attention to what it is you are putting into your body, and don't beat yourself up if you add a little too much. In the long run you will do just fine. Good luck in your quest, and pm me if you need a lift or encouragement.
Thanks for the tip chopper! I will start incorporating some mixed nuts into my diet. It would be great to grab on the go. I also allow myself pizza once a week, on fridays. Looking on line I've found something called tehne, some type of soybean (firm) from indonesia, that can be grated & fried like hamburger, and is high in protein. anyone had any experience with it?

Congratulations on your weight loss!! Do you exercise a lot?

I usualy grab a quick 1/2 sandwich w some watermelon, maybe 1/2 c of cottage cheese & a few chips. Wish I could make myself like meat more. Yesterday I ate 1,900 calories & only had 25 grams of protein. I track what I eat & it gives me the breakdown of what I should have according to my weight, age & height. I'm supposed to have 1,500 calories w a minimum of 60 grams of protein but I can rarely reach my protein requirement.

Okay troops. Suggestions are welcome.
Thank you Addie!

Sunday is when we have a little nicer, more involved breakfast.

Today I made this French Omelet. It was delicious and quite filling. The recipe says it serves 2. I suppose if you were a lumberjack that would be right, but it could easily serve 4, especially with a serving of toast, then juice and coffee. I couldn't eat all of mine. Guess I ended up saving about half. It'll have to wait until tomorrow to get gobbled up.

Glenn really enjoyed it and it was wonderfully easy to prepare. I streamlined this morning's prep by cooking the bacon and potatoes yesterday. Worked out perfectly. Beautiful, tasty breakfast with little to no effort.

I try to walk at least 3 times a week. I also go to water aerobics two times a week if I can. I ride my bike sometimes on the weekend. I rode 20 miles today. I do have some weeks where I hardly do anything, but I do the best I can. That said, I still think that eating protein every time I eat a carb is what helps me most.

Protein helps to slow down the absorption of carbs. Any time you have a carb, you should try to have a protein with it. Nuts are an excellent choice.
