    I go through stages with breakfast, right now I'm having a protein drink in my cold brew, wait a few hours, then have steel cut oatmeal with flaxseed, chia seed, apple, half serving of yogurt, cashew milk, and cinnamon. Lunch is a large salad with lots of vegetables, tuna chicken or beans/lentils, and usually one of a bunch of Bolthouse dressings. Dinner varies but usually roasted vegetables and salmon or chicken, turkey taco meat, soups, stews, or chili.

    Some go-to meals:


    1) Smoothie: Unsweetened almond milk, egg whites, frozen berries, kale/spinach, protein powder
    2) Oats and egg/egg whites


    1) Baked chicken thigh, jasmine rice, steam in bag broccoli with some sweet Thai chili sauce and sriracha
    2) Jambalaya (sounds fancy, but actually very easy to make) with chicken, sausage and shrimp, jasmine rice, broth, pepper, onion and cajun seasoning


    1) Buffalo chicken quesadilla and a side salad
    2) Flank steak, Ezekiel toast and a steam in bag veg or side salad

    I have had the same breakfast 6 days a week for 25 years. Wheaties, raw rolled oats granola and 1% milk, plus banana and strawberries. 320 calories. No exceptions. Except Sunday.

    Breakfast: yoghurt with fruit and add-ins like chia seeds, flax meal, sunflower seeds, no sugar cereal / toast and veggie bacon / oatmeal with fruit

    Lunch or Dinner: a soup or stew (I cook a big pot of something every now and then) and toast / a sandwich of tuna or egg or seitan (cook up a batch of 4 portions now and then) with a cup of soup or crackers or something / giant salad with tons of stuff in with cottage cheese and tuna or egg.
