B: 1/2 c plain Greek yogurt, 1/2 c frozen blueberries, 1/4 c home made granola, Kombucha and black coffee

L: 1.5 c home made chicken/wild rice blend soup. Again, doesn't have all the sodium that is in my tracker because I make it with no salt added chicken broth, but too lazy to put all the ingredients in so chose something I think similar.

D: pork curry, spiced cauliflower, dhal of some sort. Now that I've replenished my spices I'll have to look in my books for recipes that use lots of different flavours. lol

When I make pork curry I use two pork chops - that way I can make sure we're getting equal amounts of meat and just chunk them on the plate. I take a recipe for 4 and cut it in half to serve 2 because I don't want leftover curry most of the time. The cauliflower will do us two meals. I'll use half tonight in a Indian recipe and do something completely different with the rest of it tomorrow.

Breakfast: 2 eggs, 1/2 tsp nutritional yeast, 2 fully cooked Kirkland bacon slices, kombucha, 8 oz organic 1% milk.

Lunch - home made chicken soup with wild rice blend. Too lazy to enter everything into tracker so just put in commercial soup, but I know that my soup won't have all the sodium. Love my Udi's classic french rolls.

Dinner: fish, don't know how I'll bake it yet. Frozen fries - very low cal, and peas because John likes peas with his fish and chips.

Breakfast: 2 Udi's multi-grain toast with 1 Tbl organic pb and 8 oz organic 1% milk. Clear mind komucha

Lunch - none

Dinner - 5 oz grilled prime rib steak, 1/2 baked potato, green beans with pat of butter, red wine.

Steak is a great Sunday meal for one or two. John and I split one (weighing our cooked portions), if there is still a bit left over it's great on a salad or half sandwich the next day. Most roasts are just too big for an older couple.

Gloria, I know, lunch is the hardest meal for John and I.

Today, Breakfast: kombucha and black coffee

Lunch, tossed salad with two poached eggs, bacon bits, 2 Tbl shredded cheese, Kraft calorie wise greek salad dressing for me. John's still having the last of the French onion soup topped with cubes of Udi's gluten free french rolls and cheese, then broiled to bubbly brown the way he likes it. I hated this French onion recipe and wanted to flush it down the toilet, but John thinks it's edible so is eating it. I will make French onion soup, but won't use this recipe again!!!

Dinner, creamed tuna on wild rice, beets, and a large helping of white wine. :) The creamed tuna recipe is easy to scale down to one or two servings and could be served on toast.

For some of us it's hard to think of lunch ideas as well as dinner ideas. If you are can't eat gluten or are just trying to avoid starches in order to lose weigh it helps to have new ideas for lunches and dinners. Hopefully we can share our meals here to help inspire and share new meal plans.
