What could be better than that?

Recipes for Busy Lives!
Say good-bye to fast-food fixes and vending machine pit stops to get you through the day. Instead, try our breakfast, lunch, and snacks ideas for your busy life. They’re easy, healthy, and delicious!
How to Build a Balanced Breakfast
By Marsha McCulloch, R.D., L.D.
Need help squeezing in the most important meal of the day? Breakfast is a breeze with these simple tips on how to make a balanced on-the-go meal, along with easy, satisfying, and diabetes-friendly breakfast ideas.

 
The Importance of Breakfast for People with Diabetes
Eating a healthful breakfast can help control blood glucose, hunger, and weight. Breakfast is a chance to fill up on healthful fuel for the day’s activities and fit in some important food groups.

Get more mileage out of your breakfast by including satisfying fiber from whole grains and fruit and protein from low-fat dairy products and other lean protein sources. Need ideas? This slideshow will give you the basics on how to put a simple breakfast together in a snap, along with meal ideas that are already done for you — right down to the nutrition information. If you’re not hungry in the morning, start with a partial meal and build up.

 
Build a Balanced Breakfast
When compiling your first meal of the day, remember this simple formula:

Whole grain + dairy/protein + fruit = healthy breakfast

Include whole grains for the starch portion of your meal. This will be your main carbohydrate source. The dairy/protein digests more slowly than carbohydrate, helping you feel satisfied. And fruit is rich in essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber — plus it’s a healthy carbohydrate source.

Each of the following breakfasts has about 45 grams of carbohydrate and is a good source of fiber and protein. BONUS! They’re all easily portable if you’re on the go……

I Changed the blog name to: My Meals are on Wheels

I’m working on creating a website and the old name “Meals on Wheels” is already a registered domain name. So I went ahead and changed the blog name to “My Meals are on Wheels”. Everything’s the same just thinking about getting a web site up and going.

 

I’m also going to try to start a web site for amputees and their shoes. Being an amputee you buy shoes and in my case I’ve got a lot of left shoes that I can’t use. What I would like to do is get a site up and going where amputees can list the shoes and possibly other amputees can match up the shoes they have. Not sure yet but looking in to it.

Today’s Menu: Rainbow Trout w/ Garden Salad and Chilled Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail

I took my Mom out to eat tonight for a early Mother’s Day Gift and she chose The Red Lobster, a great choice I might add. My parents had a Shrimp and Fish dinner while I had a Chilled Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail, that I shared, along with a Garden Salad with the Rainbow Trout Dinner. 475 calories and 35 carbs approx., not bad at all for a delicious meal like this! for a dessert later at home a Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Red Lobster

Seafood is often naturally low in fat and a good source of heart-healthy, Omega-3 fatty acids. It’s also high in protein. When you pair it with our other smart choices, you can easily create a delicious meal that fits into your lifestyle.
