Spaghetti, Crusty Bread, Side Salad with light salad dressing
Spaghetti is very portable and makes a great hearty lunch that will keep you filling full until it's time for dinner. Better yet - spaghetti tends to taste better on the second day so make ahead on the evening before. Prepare favorite variety of pasta as directed on package. Drain well. You'll need one cup.
Also add 1 serving of your favorite prepared spaghetti sauce up to 100 calories.
As the pasta is cooking, cook 1/2 cup of any variety of chopped onions, 1/2 cup of any variety of sweet bell peppers and 1/2 cup of sliced or chopped mushrooms of any variety in a deep non-stick pan using cooking spray if necessary to prevent sticking.
Add this vegetable mix to the sauce and heat before combining with the prepared pasta. One serving of Parmesan cheese may be added to the spaghetti if desired.
Also enjoy a side salad consisting of the following: 2 cups of any variety of lettuce, 1 small tomato, cucumber slices and shredded carrot. Enjoy with 1 serving of salad dressing (up to 60 calories).
Also enjoy 1 bread stick or a slice of crust bread or a dinner roll up to 100 calories. Enjoy water or your choice of beverage using optional calories if needed.
1 serving of jerky, any variety (80 calories worth)
Homemade Pizza Bread, Side Salad with light salad dressing
Cut a crusty sub roll (140 calories) in half and spray with butter flavored cooking spray. Toast in a toaster oven, or on the stove top - or under a broiler until golden brown. Next, smear on a bit of marinara OR pizza sauce.

Transfer the vegetable mix to the toasted bread with pizza sauce. Top both breads with low fat shredded mozzarella cheese (up to 100 calories worth). Return to broiler and bake until cheese is thoroughly melted.
Enjoy the same type of salad you did for lunch with the light salad dressing. Also enjoy water or your choice of beverage using optional calories if needed.
