    In addition to MFP, bathroom scale, food scale, and running gear:

    1. Coffee (black) and hot tea (plain)
    2. No food until 1pm
    3. Egg and cheese burritos
    4. Fage yogurt
    5. Saving up about 300 “late night” calories for after dinner (for wine, and a small bit of cheese and crackers, Christmas cookies, etc)

    1) Not a food or an item but my husband. He supports me in every way.
    2) Instant pot. It makes prepping for the week a breeze and allows us to have complex meals even when we forget to thaw something out.
    3) Homemade unsweetened yogurt. It's my go-to snack for work, makes great smoothies and I use it as a substitute for higher fat things like sour cream.
    4) Frozen fruits and vegetables. They allow me to have produce no matter what the season. I save money because it doesn't go bad. I have a tendency to overestimate what we will eat in a week.
    5) Yoga mat. No matter what the weather is outside, I can still exercise.
