canned tuna
with low fat mayo
chopped celery
chopped onions (if you like em)
lettuce/any other veggies you like
pepper to taste
and a whole wheat pita.

this is so filling, and tuna fish is really good for you.

Tuna is also full of mercury though - don't eat it more than twice a week.

summer pasta:

combine 3-4 large regular or 5-6 roma diced tomatoes in a bowl with some olive oil, minced or pressed garlic, shredded basil and one wedge of brie (no rind, torn into pieces), salt and pepper to taste. cover and let sit at least an hour.

cook up 1 lb pasta (I prefer linguine or spaghetti), toss with with tomato mixture.

yum.

I hate to get hysterical about this stuff but I've been reading about the disasterous effect too much tuna has on kids -- like it caused a four year old to developmentally regress (she stopped talking, hair was falling out). frightening.

2 medium carrots, diced
i medium onion, diced
2 can beans (black or kidney or both)
2 cans diced tomatoes
6 oz can tomato paste
3/4 cup brown rice
12 oz canned corn
1 can garbanzo beans (chick peas)
2 teaspoons chili powder

Make your own muesli!
I love muesli in the morning and now I make my own. I even toast some bacthes by laying out the muesli (excluding the dried fruit becasue otherwise they kinda blow up) onto a tray and drizzling some honey over then jsut toast it for a bit, add the dried fruit and voila!
So this is what I put in my very own muesli recipe:
Rolled oats (a lot)
Dried fruit - saltanas and dates
A few nuts - almonds
Small handful of sunflower seeds
Some Bran and Wheatgerm - about a table spoon of each
and some cinnamon
> Very healthy and very tasty

This is really simple, and it's probably not even considered a recipe... but you get some protein and veggies in

Mix:

1/2 cup black beans
2 oz. cheese
1 medium-sized tomato
3 small mushrooms
1/8 onion

Heat for 2.5 minutes, and voila... very filling, and extremely healthy.
