Default Top 5 meals?

What are your top 5 meals, the 5 you eat the most often. (And/or the 5 meals you love the most.) Recipes are welcomed, too.

Go to the Diabetes Forum Lounge & check the sticky threads for breakfast/lunch/dinner. By checking my posts, you'll be able to determine what we eat & often how I make it.

1) Omelette, with leftovers
2) fakeburgers (I am a vegetarian)
3) kelp noodles, stir-fried with leftovers (see 1)
4) Stir fry of fake sausages (various flavors, Kielbasa, Italian) with shredded cheese and frozen veg.
5) Chef salad with fake meat or tempeh, cheese, and various veg, using bagged salad mix

And, no, I am not pushing you to join me in my veg diet. I just qualify "fake," b/c I do not want to confuse anyone to think I started eating meat.

For number 3, try our shells for two minute tacos. I use pepperjack cheese and it works great as a low carb shell. I think someone posted a way to use a muffin pan to make salad bowls.

I would LOVE to join you as a vegetarian. I was a vegetarian for several years before I got diagnosed... But I just can`t do it anymore, unfortunately. No matter what I do, my levels are too high when I try to eat vegetarian.. (Doesn`t help that I`m living in Norway, where the selection of meatreplacements/tofu etc. is extremely small. An example: I live in Norways third largest city and I don`t think I`m able to get more than 3 different kinds of fakeburgers. And they are all plain, and quite boring. And Norway sells a whopping 3 different products from Quorn. 3..... )

1. Chili - beef, black & chili beans, tomato, etc
2. Chicken tikka masala & palak paneer
3. Portobello mushroom cap pizzas
4. Breading free chicken cordon bleu
5. Chicken (no)tortilla soup

These meals all are easy on the blood sugar and feel like 'normal' eating
