S/C/G: 364/--/182

Height: 5'6"

Default Incorporating super foods...

Snack ideas:
NF plain Yogurt with berries (I eat this most work days and some weekend days)

Raw veggies (bell peppers, carrots, sugar snap peas) with hummus

Dry roasted edamame

Whole wheat bread with natural peanut butter

Dinner ideas:
Steamed or sauteed veggies, brown rice, beans and a meat (poultry or fish) for dinner.

I really like a combo I discovered the other day. A can of drained/rinsed black beans, a can of drained/rinsed kidney beans and a can of diced tomatoes simmered together on the stove makes a great bean combination.

whole wheat pizza dough covered with sauce, skim mozarella cheese and veggies. You can even skip the cheese if you want. (I wouldn't though)

Veggie and tofu stirfry with brown rice

Breakfast ideas:
Oats with soymilk but you can also mix it up like the following:

Brown rice, soy milk, walnuts, raisins, and a dash of cinnamon. Put in enough soy milk to cover the rice. Put in the microwave for 1 minute. After that, sprinkle with some oats. This is my desert like treat once in a while but I also used to eat it for breakfast.

Smoothies - you can put anything in them you like. Yogurt? Tofu? Berries? Peanut butter? other fruits?

Other ideas:

Read labels of things you buy (ensure that ingredients are whole ingredients)
Avoid buying stuff that has labels (ok some items come with labels like yogurt, grains and canned beans/veggies)
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.
