GLUTEN FREE VEGETARIAN HEALTHY BREAKFAST

This is the breakfast I have almost every day. It may look like a dieter's breakfast, but I have this as my first meal even when I'm not trying to peel off the pounds. Breakfast, clearly, is not my problem area. In fact, I'm a night binger. Not every night. But those tend to be my difficult hours. Since I figure I need to stay on track as long as I can during every day, this breakfast is a useful tool for me in my constant, although not always successful, attempt to manage my weight.

In the photo are sliced grape tomatoes with whipped lowfat cottage cheese, chives and soy bacos. The juice is a vegetable mix, and the (black) tea has Splenda and fat free milk in it. The rice cakes, two of them, are plain but salted. I hope this doesn't look too much like a dieter's prison meal, because I really like the way it tastes, despite the fact that it's low fat, full of vitamins, protein and bit of carbs for the carboholic in me. I know it's not perfect, so don't bother pointing out that I should be weaning myself off the Splenda and red dye in the bacos, because I already know that, and I'm doing the best I can! Maybe I need for this to also be my nighttime snack? Could this be the solution? What do you think?

Any other night-eaters of the gluten-free vegetarian persuasion out there with tricks to share? I would love to conquer this once and for all!

A great tip to conquer night eating: 1. Put your leftovers from dinner in the fridge before you eat dinner. That way you will not be tempted to have seconds or eat them later. 2. Brush your teeth right after dinner and make sure to mouthwash with original Listerine. It strips all flavor from your mouth and makes you not want to eat.

wow what a great tip (the listerine!!)

I have to eat at night also, as I otherwise wake up. I find that if I ensure that I eat 5 small meals throughout the day, and then have almonds and/or applesauce rite before I go to bed, I sleep through the night. I keep the squeeze applesauce by my bed in case I wake up in the night and am starved - easy to digest and makes me go rite back to sleep! Good Luck!
