    I don't know about y'all, but I am in a constant battle with my dryer about shrinking my clothes (ok ok maybe it's not so much the dryer, but my back side growing)! I take 2 diet shakes- the grocery store brand or Special K brand (bc the Slimfasts taste bad) for breakfast on the go and then lunch as well as fruit or granola bar or something along those lines for snacks. I've gained a pound or 2 (or 15) since I've been home for the past 7 months being a stay at home mommy and waiting for NS to start. This routine always helps me out!
    Thanks for this idea! I have been trying to figure out how to pack healthy food and make myself get up even earlier to eat some sort of breakfast, and I didn't even think about those shakes! I used to love just drinking those is HS, but I just kind of forgot about them. I have definitely gained about 5 lb. since starting nursing school a year ago, and it would be nice not to be even 5 lbs heavier at graduation next year lol...

    A local restaurant closed after almost four generations. The food was to die for! Homemade
    Italian pastas, sauces, desserts, soups, breads, sandwiches...

    I just tried what was in each of my favorite salads. No amounts, but what was in each salad.

    They'd be fantastic for lunch! They turned their unused Italian, garlic, garlic/cheese homemade
    breads into croutons.

    I just remembered! It isn't on my list, but each salad had freshly planed asiago and parmesan
    curls on top. I'm making myself hungry!

    sliced salami
    sliced ham
    whole ripe olives
    grape or cherry tomatoes
