Wow--I'm humbled. Don't forget LOTs of veggies. I eat a lot of greens--2x as many greens on the plate as protein or grains. Remember, I don't eat a lot of bread or pasta. Good to know it is heart and diabetic diet friendly. I'll be trying to get my dad to join me for breakfast next time I venture west...I also don't eat pre-packaged foods. And, as much as I love cheese, I've been restricting that (okay, the turkey casserole was WAY over the top for cheese, etc., but that is not how I eat every day). If you load up on the right balance of protein-fat-greens-grains at breakfast, you will not be hungry until you are ready for lunch. Good luck!!!
