Ditch the toaster pastry. They're loaded with sugar and fat--and not much else. My hand tarts are full of fruit, and if you make them ahead of time your kids can grab them and go.

This is a modified version of my original Fiber One protein bar recipe posted on my blog. This one cuts out the artificial sweeteners except what is already present in your protein powder of choice, and adds in a bit of coconut for flavor and texture. It tastes like a krispie treat smooshed on top of a chocolate Tootsie Roll infused with just a hint of coconut, raisin, and peanut butter, and it is dairy-free and artificial sweetener free except for the protein powder. You can try to find a Stevia-sweetened, non-dairy protein powder if you like. Also, note that one bar has over 7 grams of fiber, which is over 1/4 of your recommended daily intake.
At 226 calories, 29 g carbs (7 g fiber), 20 g protein, and 6 g fat, this is suitable as a portable meal replacement or post-workout snack for those of you doing Body-for-Life, South Beach, the Zone, or other similar plans.Submitted by CAUSTICMUSE

A great way to start the day with the creamy tastes of cheese, egg and mushrooms for under 200 calories and a serving of vegetables. The typical omelette can contain up to 600 calories (http://caloriecount.about.com/calories-dennys-ultimate-omelette-meal-i53141) With this choice instead you save the calorie equivalent of walking for an hour and 20 minutes ( based on a 165 pound person walking 3.5 mph)Submitted by SHIRLZO1961
