  • Smoothie: 8oz. low fat yogurt, 1 whole piece fruit or 8 oz. fruit juice; English muffin with jam.
  • Egg white omelet with veggies and whole wheat toast.
  • 1 cup oatmeal or yogurt with ¼ cup raisins stirred in; 1 cup fat-free milk.

  • Whole grain turkey wrap with lettuce, tomato, and low fat dressing.
  • Fresh Lettuce Salad with added pieces of chicken or tuna, cup up raw veggies and whole wheat pita.
