Thank you for the tips
Thanks for that help I was just planning breakfast
Thank you for sharing your tips, Colleen
Colleen and all - thanks for the tips.
Thank you...GREAT info!
Thanks so much for the ideas, I'm sure they will be appreciated by our chalengers.
If I may add another suggestion for potatoes in their skin, we use Cottage cheese and chopped chives instead of sour cream.
We also use CC on taco's (home made meat sauce with fresh tomatoes, etc) I even mince my own steak so I know there is no fat or other additives in it.
Here is an idea for a wonderful desert, full of goodness and very quick and easy to make as a treat:
Take a whole banana and slice through the skin lengthwise, but leave it on the banana.
Make several crosswise slits in the banana itself and into each slit place a slice of your favourite cooking apple, some blanched almond slivers and a few plump sultanas (not sure what you call sultanas in the US but they are the largish, fat, pale coloured fruits)
Pull the banana skin as closed as you can and cook (on a plate) for about 3 minutes in the microwave until the banana is totally soft and cooked through like a banana fritter.
You may serve with one scoop of lo-cal ice-cream or reduced fat cream or just eat on its own.
You can substitute slices of peach, plums or pears or whatever fruit you like in place of the apples and dried fruit.
Now this is a "TREAT" not meant to be eaten every night or you will undo all your efforts.

Thanxx for the tips, will put them to good use! Hope you can get off that 15! **
Thanks for the encouragement, Water Lily - I didn't weigh in this morning but I have a "Nana Day" scheduled with one of my GDs and I know that may possibly entail breakfast out.
I, at 5'10" weighed 250 at the start. I cheated and got on the scale on Day 3 and had gained 3 pounds. I mentioned that I am the only one who can see the weight gain since meno and that's only because the water in my eyes following my shower just seems to magnify my mirrored image.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL. I made a pot of collard green soup last night (the first time that I really know that I've eaten collard greens) and I can tell everyone that they are delicious!
