  • breakfast at 6:30 - usually oatmeal and an apple
    snack at 10 - cottage cheese and fruit or leftover oatmeal.

    lunch - depends on the day but most often its a salad with chicken or something leftover from the night before.

    snack 3ish - fruit or veggies, cheese and crackers (I share with the kids for an after school snack)

  • I'm not dieting, but I have to eat multiple meals with gestational diabetes. A couple days/week I have a scrambled egg w/ whole wheat toast, yogurt, lowfat wheat thins, string cheese, I eat a lot of soups, I make my own chili with ground turkey breast and eat that with crackers, fruit (I keep some type of juicy fruit cut up in my fridge - melon, pineapple, etc; or blueberries or apples).

  • I stick to a rule - each meal needs to have a protein and a carb, and beyond that I just mix however I'm in the mood. Usual combinations:
    yogurt and a granola bar
    cereal w/ milk & banana
    omelets w/ veggies

    Also do a ton of salads w/ meat & cheese on them. A little bit goes a long way, say a tablespoon of shredded cheese and 1 oz of shredded chicken seems like a lot mixed in. And I keep a variety of things around that can go in a salad so I can change up the combinations - rasins/cran rasins, almond slivers, grapes, tomatoes, olives, more than just the basic lettuce/carrot/onion that's usually in a salad mix.
