    I eat up to 5 or 6 times a day… usually three medium meals, such as breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with two to three small snacks in between:

    Breakfast:

    - Whole Grain Cereal (I looooooove Kashi Go Lean Crunch) with some almond milk and ground flax seeds and some fresh fruit like bananas…

    or

    - Salmon cakes with an egg white omelet topped with sauteed tomatoes and fresh avocado, with fresh spinach drizzled with lemon juice and a piece of whole grain toast with olive oil…. plus a berry smoothie (with green tea, fresh orange, goji berries, acai, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries… and sometimes blackberries)

    or

    - Oatmeal with Almond milk, almonds or walnuts, dried or fresh fruit (such as cranberries, raisins or diced apple – tastes like apple pie) with cinnamon and flax seed (for a healthy omega-3 fat)

    or

    - Whole grain pancakes with either blueberries or banana, walnut in them, or plain… topped with either honey, syrup (you have to look for natural maple syrup though… not corn syrup processed stuff) or fresh whipped cream sweetened with Equal (but Stevia’s best) and fresh strawberries or strawberry or blueberry sauce… or bananas foster… Plus… you can make healthy chocolate chip pancakes using “carob” in place of chocolate chips (just learned that today and wanna try it)….

    Snacks (which I eat 2 to 3 times a day between my Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner):

    - Green Tea (I drink at least 3 to 4 cups every day – though I had to work my way up to it cause it could be intense at first as it’s a natural diuretic – makes you pee)

    - Handful of Nuts with some Dried Fruit (tart cherries, “unsweetened” are very good for you)

    or

    - Yogurt Parfait (with either fresh or lightly sweetened berries or peaches with some granola/muesli – which I make myself – and ground flaxseed – for a healthy fat)

    or

    - Spirulina, Chlorella Smoothie (with both blue-green algaes, mango, apple, banana, pineapple, and kiwi all mixed in a blender… with fiber from apple skins and all)

    or

    - Chocolate-Chocolate-Chip Smoothie (with cacao powder – which is raw chocolate in its unprocessed state… basically unprocessed cocoa bean – some cocao nibs – which take on the consistency of chocolate chips in this smoothie – some almond milk, 1/2 a banana and some ground flax… all blended in a blender for a DELICIOUS creamy treat *lol*)

    or

    - Pumpkin Smoothie (with unsweetened canned pumpkin and some almond milk, sweetener, and pumpkin pie spice or just allspice, ground cloves, nut meg, cinnamon, etc.)

    or

    - Peanut Butter Smoothie (with all-natural, unsweetend Peanut Butter – I like “Smuckers” brand – some almond milk, sweetener and some fiber with “Psyllium husks” – I get my fiber from “DrNatura”)

    or

    - A Wheatgrass shot (I have my own “Wheatgrass juicer” since you can’t just use an ordinary juicer because the speed will destroy the natural enzymes in the wheatgrass)

    or

    - A “Green Smoothie” (which is nothing more than a smoothie that contains both fruits and vegetables together)

    or

    - Fresh Juice from my juicer (my favorite is carrot, apple, ginger… I love it!)

    or

    - Some whole grain pastries and baked goods (Wholefoods sells lots of whole grain stuff or I make them myself… I love healthy biscotti)

    Lunch:

    - A falafel (with tzatziki sauce)

    or

    - A wrap (with boneless chicken, lettuce, tomato, ranch dressing)

    or

    - Lentil Chili

    or

    - Sandwiches… like a turkey and swiss sandwich on whole grain bread with lettuce, tomato, and sprouts… with a little mayo… and some soup (which I make myself and freeze)… or I’ll have a tuna sandwich with some chips or lemon soup (which is just some chicken soup with lemon juice in it – my favorite) or I make a Reuben sandwich (with pastrami and saurkraut with Russian dressing) or a chicken B.L.T or regular B.L.T sandwich….

    or

    - I’ll just have some Ramen noodles with Eggs (like an Egg Drop style soup) with some fresh Spinach cooked in….

    or

    - A whole grain pizza (I buy my own whole wheat flour and yeast to make my own crust – I also would like to make my own mozzarela but haven’t done it yet… you can add artichoke hearts, proscuitto, sundried tomatoes, parmesan, whatever toppings you like)

    Dinner:

    - A salad with grilled or breaded chicken (with spinach, carrot shreds, tomato, cucumber, avocado, cheddar cheese, turkey bacon, hard-boiled egg, whole grain croutons, and either ranch or honey mustard dressing)… or I’ll have a buffalo wing salad (with boneless, grilled chicken tossed in hot sauce and served over a bed of romaine with celery and carrot shredds and blue cheese dressing)… or a shrimp or scallop salad (with fried, breaded shrimps or scallops, or both, served over a bed of mixed greens with a little bit of fresh lemon juice and olive oil and a side of tartar sauce with capers and a slice of whole grain baguette)… If I’m really eating a lot I’ll also have a baked potatoe with a side of chili (with turkey meat or ground beef that has the fat rendered from it – just by boiling in salt water and draining)

    or

    - Whole grain pasta with a garden, chunky-style pasta sauce (which I make myself) and some whole grain Italian bread… with a small side salad of fresh spinach and a little olive oil and vinegar…

    or

    - Chinese Stirfry and Brown Rice

    or

    - Cod fish Salad (which is nothing more than some salted cod fish with yucca, steamed carrots, avocado, tomatoes, fresh spinach or romain lettuce, hard boiled eggs, and onion either sauteed in vinegar or raw with oil and vinegar and/or lemon juice to top) or a Salad Nicoise with some seared tuna…

    or

    - Anything else I’d like to cook….

    Dessert:

    - Chocolate Bread Pudding (using cacao powder, flaxseed, whole grain bread, almond milk and eggs with sweetener) topped with fresh whipped cream sweetened with Equal and some fresh strawberries…

    or

    - Jello Parfaits with either Whipped Cream or Yogurt with fresh fruit

    And… on the weekends or whenever… I’ll cheat with just a day or two of junk food or whatever the heck I want to eat… Usually if it’s Chinese takeout I’ll just order it with some brown rice….

    (I cut and pasted this from one of my older posts… I used to eat like this but gained weight when I stopped eating, only ate one meal a day and it was mostly takeout)

    I know… *lol*… I said if you wanna read it…
