From Katherine at Yellow Rose Arbor came the query, "Can you give us more details of what you eat for breakfast and lunch that holds you all night? I'm curious!"
Carrell at Country Charisma indicated, "Would love to know what they recommended for your breakfast and lunch."
At NEWSTART we were urged to "Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, supper like a pauper." So our biggest meal would be breakfast.
The cafeteria provided substantial meals that kept us well-fed without hunger pangs in between meals. In any case, we were also urged to avoid snacking so our meals had time to digest properly. We also got lots of encouragement to drink lots of water between meals.
For your interest, here is a sampling of what we ate that gave wonderful satiety** through the day and night.

For our last lesson we prepared a delicious Mexican luncheon.
