Progresso Lentil Soup. Serve as is from can or put this over rice and garnish with cilantro - delicious and FILLING.
Progresso Garden Vegetable soup. Serve alone or with a microwave baked potato
Potatoes - if you microwave them and stuff them with a Quick Veggie Stir Fry (recipe below) or fry an onion with a quick Pam spray in a non-stick pan, add Meatless Ground - you have a filling, legal meal or lunch.

Lentils over rice I actually like to put this over the Spinach Salad

Cooked oatmeal (with water), brown sugar
Fruit with Toasted Oatmeal. Paul, you will like this is we adjust the oatmeal to be a 'topping' and then gradually increase the amount. Johnny uses 1 cup of oatmeal and often has this as a snack.
Rice Cakes with Jam (no peanut butter!)
Rice + brown sugar or honey + cinnamon
Cereal with Soy, Rice, Almond or other 'milk'. If you really miss milk - after you are progressing on your diet, you can mix your this with regular milk 1/2 & 1/2, then gradually increase the other 'milk', reducing the dairy milk. You can learn to like it. ;-)
