How do you guys go about eating zone type foods, when you are at work/school? What sorts of food do you eat?

Also what do you do for a quick breakfast?

Hi Paul

you can log into www.drsears.com and there's all sorts of information on the site for things to eat. There is a block chart on the CF site also you'll find it in the FAQs. Im not sure which journal it is but if you look through the back issues there is a CF Journal which has meal and snack plans which I found very useful.

As far as a quick breakfast goes I tend to blast a smoothie made with natural yogurt, grapes, kiwi,milk, cottage cheese and macadamias this is quick but the ingredients must be measured specifically for you.

I boil up a dozen eggs at the beginning of every week so I have them on hand for a quick snack/breakfast.

Thanks for the ideas,

What sort of thing replaces sandwiches? Obviously the bread has to go, but is it just salads from now on?

Becca, just out of curiousity, how many hard boiled eggs would you consider as a snack?

Eggs make a great snack. Typically I'll have 2 hardboiled eggs for a snack.

Max - if I am strictly following my blocks I only get 11 a day. So a "snack" for me is 1 a "meal" would be 3. But when I'm not being so strict, usually I have 2 for a snack, with an apple and some source of fat.

Deli turkey meat is good for a protein. 1.5 ounces of turkey with an ounce of cheese is even better (as long as you're not paleo). Throw in some fruit and almonds and you're good to go.

A "quick" breakfast for me is cottage cheese, berries and almond butter (2 or 3 blocks). Fior lunch I normally do a 3 block salad, but if I am on the road...2oz chicken breast, apple and almonds. I try to stay away from the deli meats due to the preservatives.
