My favorite low-point dinner is this:
1 point tortilla
1/2 c black beans (2 pts)
Whatever veg you have on hand

Sautee the veg with chili powder and garlic and onion, add beans, and make a monstrous wrap. Very filling, very core-friendly, fantastically healthy. I usually top it with avocado and cook it in EVOO but that adds to the pointiness.

I tend to arrange my points in a kind of upside-down pyramid fashion. My breakfasts are hearty and my meals decline in volume as I approach dinner, as I find I just don't need as much food later in the day. Figure out what you are comfortable with in terms of how you want to eat, then spread out your points accordingly, making sure there is room for snacking.
