    Basics for me - by the way, I've realized that I really don't like to cook! So, most of these are easy/no prep.

    Vegetables - sometimes frozen and sometimes fresh. Usually pre-cut.
    Eggs - any and every way
    Cottage cheese - usually 1%

    Narrow down to 3? Oh my, then I'll make it a broad 3

    Veggies - lots of green, zucchini, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, onions, ......
    Fruits - mainly apples, bananas, all kinds of berries that are a reasonable price and of course, avocados
    Proteins - lots of chicken, 2 dozen eggs, Fage 0%

    Same here. I just calibrated my coffee maker on Sun. and already regret it. When it thought it had ground 31g, it had actually ground 36g of coffee. Now, even on the highest strength setting, I don't think I'm getting strong enough coffee. As it turns out, I should have kept it as it was.

    Popcorn, Apples, and Spinach end up on the list every week.

    Eggs, frozen chicken breast, and coffee end up on it every couple of weeks.

    Plain fat free greek yogurt, avocados, blueberries, eggs, quinoa or black rice, lemons for lemon water, organic chicken or wild caught salmon, all the veggies in season. Many of my veggies come from my garden.

    I go through periods of trying to gain and trying to lose. In both cases, I eat/drink exactly the same stuff, just more or less of it.

    Individually shrink wrapped tilapia & salmon filets from Walmart. About $3/pound for tilapia and $4.25/pound for Salmon. And its wild caught salmon, so lower fat/calories than farm raises. These are always in my freezer and can turn into a quick and easy meal for me if I don't want what the family is having.

    Also, olive oil spray. I know its not actually 0 cal, but in many cases I can use a little of this (such as to saute asparagus) instead of actual olive oil. Though actual olive oil is great for browning up some garlic to toss with veggies...

    Garlic salt. I like garlic, I like salt and garlic salt has lower sodium than regular salt. I use it with most meats & veggies that I cook.

    And recently (I know, this is 4, oh well) for a sweet treat: Halo Top ice cream. 240-360 calories depending on flavor for a pint of ice cream. And its GOOD.
