Google a recipe -

Make a veggie frittata with only 2 whole eggs, the rest whites. Veggies and a bit of feta cheese. One quarter will only be about 15-200 calories and that's full of fiber and protein and...flavor! Easy to throw in a mini whole wheat pita and eat on the run.

put some walnuts or almonds in the blender. Grind them up. Add a little fruit juice (NSA, no glucose either!!!) Then add a banana and frozen berries. Fruit servings for a day, and protien to prevent a sugar crash. Fresh and all natural.
