I had a pretty awesome dinner tonight, wanted to share!

+ 2 slices of whole wheat bread, toasted (70cals each)
+ a few teaspoons of canned tuna (in water) scooped onto each slice (maybe 50cals)
+ a few slices of onion on top
+ a salad consisting of half a large tomato, a tablespoon of crumbled feta, and salt and pepper.

All together clocking in at 307cals on my fitness pal! I could have had another slice of toast and still kept it under 400! Yum!

Default Tofu Noodles - Don't knock'em to you try them!

I think these Tofu Shirataki noodles are the best things ever. I've tried the Fettuccine, Macaroni and Angel hair. They are all fantastic and with only 20 calories per bag. The texture is more like a rice noodle, but they pair well with anything. I have not tried frying them yet, but after boiling them (to get all the STANK out) your options are limitless! I've paired mine with veggies and egg whites for my fake Chinese food. Using real ginger really gives it a ton of flavor. Just watch your soy sauce. It has 10 calories per table spoon. I can totally stuff myself with 300 calories of this lunch!

They are sold in the refrigerated section in produce. They aren't the cheapest things, but if you want pasta, this is totally the way to go.

Lots of great recipes on here! Always looking to expand, I usually go to Pinterest but most recipes don't have the calorie count on them! Some are easy to figure out and others aren't.

Black Bean Pizza (my kids LOVE it - we usually make 2 and they take leftovers to school)

1 whole wheat pizza crust (calorie count is based on Mama Mary's whole wheat, their whole GRAIN adds about 7 calories per slice)
1 cup pizza sauce
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup shredded monterey jack
1 can black beans rinsed and drained well.
1 clove finely minced garlic
1/8 tsp ground cumin
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced (opt.)

Mix black beans, garlic and cumin well.
Spread sauce, then cheese, then peppers, then bean mixture - cook according to crust cooking times

Cut into 8 slices

Per slice: 181 calories, 23g carb, 8g fat,10 g protein

2 slices pizza, served with cut veggies

Cheese can be reduced to tweak calories and fat as desired.
Lost successfully, maintained successfully. Followed by a whole lot of setbacks and obstacles. Starting over with the knowledge gained before.

I love apple sandwiches. I can't remember where I got the idea from - it may very well have been 3FC. I cut cross-sections from an apple until I have 4 pieces (2 total buns). Then I use deli meat (or lox/lax, chicken, etc.). I use 3 slices per "sandwich," so 6 total. That's 1 1/2 the normal serving. Put half a piece of low fat cheese (provolone for me) on each, plus a piece of lettuce. Voila! 2 apple sandwiches for 220 calories (give or take depending on your cheese/meat choices). It's a great way to have a low-carb, gluten free sandwich. Add sides of carrots, almonds, or whatever strikes your fancy.

Today's lunch is so delicious that I feel inspired to show it off here. Vegan, gluten-free, nut free.

1/4c (uncooked) quinoa
one of those half-size tins of chick peas/garbanzo beans
1c spinach
a carrot (I used two as they were small)
2 sundried tomatoes
10 raisins
1/2T pine kernals

Rinse the quinoa, which requires a reasonably fine meshed sieve, and then cook it with plenty of water. Bring it to the boil, simmer for fifteen min, then drain and run cold water over it until it is cooled.

Meanwhile, peel and dice the carrot, cut up the spinach a bit, cut up the sundried tomatoes, and stick it all in a large bowl with the drained chick peas.

Once the quinoa is done, add that and your vinaigrette, plus salt and pepper to taste.

I like to combine protein types, it's a good habit for vegans to get into and it makes the meals more filling.

Variations on this salad include bell peppers, olives, fresh mushrooms, that sort of thing. The base is chick peas, quinoa and spinach. Spinach works better than lettuce for salads as it does not go soggy in the way that lettuce does when mixed with other ingredients. It's also pretty and colourful!

According to MyFitnessPal, it's 399 cal, 63g carbs of which 8g sugars, 10g fat, 16g protein.
