I have had a shake for breakfast and lunch, as well as a salad with a half cup of mushrooms and a cup of bell pepper for lunch with the WF dressing (creamy italian). Supper has been chicken and squash or cauliflower. I am having to force myself to eat any lettuce or third packet because I am just not hungry. Help!
The lettuce isn't required. The packets & veggies are.
You can even purée spinach in a shake to assure you get all your veggies in.
Before long, you'll be craving MORE veggies.
I hope by "squash" you mean zucchini? It's the only allowed squash.
Some veggies cook down more, as well, which might make it easier to get them all in.
