I find even when my daily "goal" is 1200-1400 that some days I'm only hungry enough for 1000 calories. And then the next day I'm hungry enough to eat up to my 1400 ceiling.
I calculate each day anyway, so I started a 7-day average line in my spreadsheet. Most weeks I'm right around 1300 for my average calories, even with some low days and some higher days.
So I don't worry too much about it.
If you do worry, add a pat of herbed butter to your meat or veg, or eat a spoonful of nut butter, or a bite of cream cheese. They are small things that pack a calorie wallop of healthy fat.
