I was on gold for 3+ months so this is my suggestion to you. Since there are only 2 proteins on gold for your 3 main meals, I used up a dairy, fruit, and starch together for one of my main meals, usually for breakfast. Sometimes, though I switched things up to keep my body guessing and I had this combination for lunch or even for dinner. With these 3 foods, I made a yogurt parfait using my favorite, Dannon lite and lively low fat vanilla yogurt. With the yogurt, I added the fruit of my choice and then fiber one cereal. It is a very filling meal for me and it solved the problem of having only 2 proteins. I know the drawback is that I was using up one of my only 2 starches, but oh well that is what I felt I had to do.
You asked about daily menu plans. Several months back, there are monthly threads where members have added their daily menus. You can find those by going back to these pages (currently) July, page 20; June, page 29; May, page 36 and April, and page 43. I hope you get some ideas. You can even look at the menus for other “colors” and then adapt them for gold. I don’t know why we all stopped entering the daily menus. I suppose it is a time issue, but I feel that it is as valuable as POP challenges or could be used in conjunction with POP challenges.
You also asked about soup recipes. There is a recipe section at the top of the page and you will find some soup recipes there. I also stumbled on a link that shows an index to the recipes and it is http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/arch...php/f-205.html
