1/4 cup of cooked egg substitute or 1 scrambled egg
1/3 cup of sauteed potatoes
Top with salsa and roll up in a small flour tortilla.

Men: Add another egg.

Lunch: Crunchy Grilled Cheese
2 slices of whole-grain bread
1 ounce of cheese (1 slice); any cheese will do, but try something new, like Gouda, for fun

1/4 of a tart apple, sliced

Place cheese, chipotle, and apple between the slices of bread. Lightly spread butter substitute on outside of bread and place in a saute pan on low heat until cheese starts melting. Flip after about 2-3 minutes so both sides get browned.
