    I was away from home most of yesterday and today, which makes things a bit more challenging, but I think I managed ok.
    Yesterday:
    Morning Snack: Quest double chocolate protein bar
    Breakfast: Ham, egg, and cheese on whole-wheat everything bagel, and iced coffee with milk
    Lunch: didn't have
    Afternoon Snack: Some chocolate fudge and a mug of oolong tea
    Dinner: Taco Bell black bean crunchwrap supreme and spicy potato soft taco
    Evening Snack: toasted Ezekiel bread with butter, vegetable plate (tomato, cucumber, green pepper, nutritional yeast, onion flakes, black pepper, red pepper), Enlightened brownies and cookie dough ice cream bar
    Exercise: None (it was over 90 degrees)
    Totals: 1996 cals, 47% carbs, 35% fat, 18% protein

    Today:
    Morning Snack: (in lieu of breakfast) Plain whole milk yogurt with a cut-up peach and vanilla extract
    Lunch: Wendy's southwest avocado salad, and sour cream and chive baked potato
    Afternoon Snack: Cafe au lait, and Fulfil chocolate salted caramel mini protein bar (which I think is the best protein bar I have ever had in my life tbh)
    Dinner: Sandwich (Ezekiel bread, tempeh "bacon," cheddar, and mustard) and salad (two scrambled eggs with green pepper and Mrs. Dash, Lantana buffalo hummus, spinach, tomato, baby carrots, there was also supposed to be a cucumber but the cucumber tasted weirdly bitter so I got rid of it). Yes I do put scrambled eggs on top of salad, it's really good and I recommend it.
    Evening Snack: Coconut-date roll and pecans.
    Also on both days I had lots of unsweetened iced tea throughout the day, as usual.
    Exercise: Walked around 2 hours (went to the beach)

    Breakfast: Didn't have
    Lunch: Sandwich (whole-wheat wrap, scrambled eggs, grilled chicken, bacon, fresh mozzarella, tomato) and iced coffee with whole milk and turbinado sugar

    Lots of unsweetened iced tea throughout the day.

    rockitwell86 posted that she finds it difficult prepping for one person. food preparation here is done a lot by freezing. I freeze fresh vegetables, partial boiled a few minutes, blanche in cold water, lay out on etc parchments to freeze and put into individual freezer bags. spinach, celery, peppers, brussel sprouts, I usually saute onions and mushrooms first, then freeze.
