I have scads of spinach in the freezer, my favorite green. Most of my problem comes for deciding what to have for breakfast. I absolutely HATE eating first thing in the morning, so I have to preplan my mornings and it can't involve more than microwave cooking in the morning...as in heating up. So I think greek yogurt and hot cereal in the mornings is my best bet and then my main meal at lunch, the one with beans and veggies.

I was also a "I don't want to eat yet" person in the mornings. I forced myself to eat breakfast. But, I made the grains the night before, so all I had to do was heat those in the microwave, steam my greens, and poach the eggs (again, the microwave). I've got it so I can have breakfast ready in 3 minutes, especially if I go with hb eggs instead of poached. If I don't have grains I did the night before, I make oatmeal or grits for the grain.

I really need more planning time, I make all my hot cereal a week ahead, so I don't have to think in the morning. B y the time I am ready to eat, it's time to leave for work. There is no getting up earlier, I already get up 2 hours before I have to be at work. Seriously, I am not "awake" for at least an hour and I need that time just to get into the shower...I'm not a real person when I wake up in the morning.

Do you still drink coffee? I quit coffee 5 years ago. I pop out of bed in the morning now that I don't suffer from a caffeine hangover. It used to take me 2 hours to feel as if my brain were engaged in the morning before I quit coffee. Now, I can shower (I have the microwave working on breakfast while I'm in the shower), dress, eat, feed the dogs, let the dogs in and out, feed and water the chickens and check my email and be out the door 45 minutes after I get up.

I only drink one cup a day...and it's low caffiene, I drink only water for the rest of the day. I don't get headaches anymore if I don't have caffiene. I have never woken up nice, ever since I was little. I'm sure I will be fine with just yogurt and oatmeal for my breakfasts and a glass of low sodium V-8 juice. I'm allowed 300 calories for breakfast.

Yep, I grabbed the veg lunch cookbook and the easy breakfasts. I will likely be eating more breakfast for my evening meals since then I can enjoy them.
