On the Run:

Grocery store take-out: 2 large stuffed shells (stuffed with cheese and veggies), 1 cup tossed salad with 1 tablespoon fat-free dressing, 1/2 cup fruit salad, 1 cup soymilk

Chinese take-out: 3/4 cup fried rice with 1/2 cup tofu (or shrimp if you are a semi-vegetarian) and 1 cup mixed Asian vegetables, 1 fortune cookie

2 soy dogs with 1/2 cup vegetarian baked beans, 6 baby carrots with 2 tablespoons low-fat dressing for "dip," 1 orange, 1 cup soymilk


Family Friendly:

Tofu Cacciatore, 1 cup tossed salad

Medium baked potato topped with 1/2 cup seasoned legumes (choose your favorite legume, for example kidney beans seasoned with chili powder and cumin, or garbanzo beans seasoned with garlic and onion, or curried lentils) and 1 tablespoon low-fat soy-cheese, 1/2 cup steamed broccoli with 1 teaspoon tub margarine, 1 baked apple (bake the apples and the potatoes at the same time!) stuffed with 1 tablespoon raisins, cinnamon and 1 teaspoon brown sugar

Vegetarian kabobs made with marinated tempeh and veggies (try this super recipe), 1 whole grain roll with 1 teaspoon tub margarine, 1 slice angel food cake topped with 1/2 cup strawberries, 1 cup soymilk


Cheap and Easy:
