Ive started making scramblers in the morning...I buy the egg whites in the carton now and pour about a half a cup in the pan and add 1 whole egg. Its also a good idea to mix some spinach, onions and peppers into it as well. You could also chop up some turkey bacon and throw it in. It makes a much more substantial breakfast. Plus you are getting in your veg.
Maybe every couple of days throw some fresh avocado into your salad for some healthy fat. I also sometimes need some crunch to my salad...so I take about 7 almonds and toss those in too.
I dont know about you...but it would be hard for me to eat poached eggs with out toast to dip into the yolk. Try to have some lean protien for dinner. I dont eat meat...so at night I find myself eating fish. I love Greek salad....so I make a big one top it off with a nice peice of salmon. You can find a lowfat Feta as well, fairly easily these days.

But what I do is: eye ball about 1 tbs evoo with either some lemon juice or white wine vinegar, some dried oregano, a little parm, salt and pepper, a pinch of paprika, and minced garlic.
For my salmon...I like to coat things in herbs. Basil goes great with salmon and dill of course. I usually coat in basil, roast and make a roasted red pepper sauce. I have modified it for SB. Roast the peppers 2 - along with 2 cloves of garlic, salt and pepper them . When they come out, add to food processor, add some low fat parm, 2 Tbs Spanish Paprkia, about a cup of low fat cream, 1/4 cup lemon juice. Re-heat on stove top. Its delicious. Since you probably wont use all the sauce in one meal, it can be re-heated and used later in the week with chicken or over spaghetti squash:)
