Meals for 1

I've had some request from friends to share what I eat on a daily basis. I don't follow a meal plan but I guess everyone thinks because I'm a dietitian that I should. Usually I blog about recipes for special meals that I make, not every day food - I don't make pretty meals, usually I just throw things together and eat it. Another problem for me is that I eat the same things in rotation and I love left overs.
No matter what my excuses are I thought I'd at least give it a try. Here are three meals I made this weekend that are pretty standard.
Saturday I attended an all day music festival and I was starving when I got home. I made this pizza from a whole wheat Flat Out flatbread with about 2-3 tablespoons of tomato sauce that I mixed with Italian spices, spinach, cherry tomatoes, and mushrooms. I pop mine in an oven at 300* for about 15 minutes. I make several variations of this pizza with whatever toppings I have in the refrigerator and I've made it using pita bread and whole wheat tortillas.
This was Sunday's breakfast. Usually I like to cook a hot meal on Sunday mornings but I was too lazy to do it after staying out late on Saturday night. I eat this a lot during the week where I mix 1/2 cup of fiber one orginal cereal with 1 container of greek yogurt (whatever flavor I have). Sometimes I mix in dried or fresh fruit but I had already eaten my last banana earlier in the morning. I love this breakfast because it's quick to eat and has 14 grams of protein and 14 grams of fiber.
Yet another regular meal in my house. I made a double helping of this Sunday night so I'd have leftovers for Monday's lunch. I cooked 2 portions of shrimp and a handful of mushrooms in a spritz of PAM spray with crushed red pepper flakes. I make a sauce using a sprinkle of flour and about 3 tablespoons of milk and melt in 1 wedge of laughing cow cheese. Coat the shrimp well in the sauce and add a shake (or a few in my case) of hot sauce. I eat mine on a salad usually but today I put it on a bed of spinach.
