Eat a wide variety of foods, and don?t be afraid to try vegetables, fruits, grains, breads, nuts, or seeds that you?ve never tried before. Convenient, ready-to-eat, whole-grain breakfast cereals, and quick-cooking whole-grain cereals such as oatmeal, whole-grain breads and crackers, such as rye, whole wheat, and mixed grain and other grains such as barley and bulgur wheat are readily available.

*Vegetarian soups like lentil, navy bean, or minestrone
*A wide variety of plain frozen vegetables, and canned and frozen fruit
*Fortified soy milks and soy cheeses, should you choose to not eat dairy
