Default Staying On-Plan, 8/9 - 9/5

It's time for a new week of talking On-Plan!

Anyone, from any phase (1, 1.5, 2, 3, etc.) can post, and those who are new to 3FC are especially encouraged to do so!
This thread is for questions, sharing advice and strategies, and encouraging each other to stay on plan. It is not for chatting about daily life unrelated to this topic. Members have indicated that they would like to have chatting remain in the Daily Thread, so any posts that are off topic or chatty will be moved by the mods to the Daily.
Because people from different parts of the plan are posting here, it'll help everyone if you indicate what phase you're in when you post. Thanks!
While you may certainly find, from time to time, the need to ask for help after going off plan, remember that this thread is about staying on plan. When you share details of off plan foods you've eaten, it can upset, tempt, and otherwise frustrate other members, so please keep these details to a minimum.

So, share with us: How are you staying on plan this week?

Phase 1:

My plan to stay on Phase 1 this week is:

Early preperation. Today will be a 15 hour day between work and school, so at 4am I made chili for dinner 2nite, when I arrive home at 9pm to eat it.
To help with cravings I bought the fudgecicles, which really helped yesterday.
This weekend I will be canning green beans to take to work with leftover protien for lunches.

My meals today are:

Breakfast: 1 egg 2 whites omlette with hatch green chili's and a little swiss
Lunch: Salmon filet in balsamic vinegar and sliced cucumbers and tomatoes
Dinner: Chili with organic grassfed lean beef
Snack: Hard boiled egg
If anyone can give me some different ideas for snacks I would most appreciate it. I think I'm overdoing the dairy and need some new options. I'm about veggied out. So anything else you can think of LOL.

Hello all! So glad I found this website--great place for accountability! Here's how I did today:

Phase 2
B-Kashi go Lean cereal
L-Veggie soup and leftover meatloaf
D-Turkey Pastrami and red cabbage slaw wrappend in a Flatout

Post workout snack (if needed)- Hard boiled egg

Summersbluepits- My favorite snack is pistacios. 30 of them equals one serving, and if you get the kind in shells it takes a while to eat them all, so very satisfying. Costco sells some delicious ones--the brand is Everybody's Nuts or Totally Nuts or something like that. The Salt & Black Pepper ones are really yummy.

Today went pretty well considering the sudden midday collapse of my original plan. It was yet another reminder to always, always carry healthy snacks in case of emergency. We were supposed to meet at a restaurant I am familiar with. My lunch was planned based on their menu. Restaurant was closed, met elsewhere then planned database training after so lunch wasn't until 2. At least I now know where the Co-op is, so can always find quick food.

Phase 2
B: hemp powder smoothie with fruit & zucchini
L: sandwich on whole grain bread with artichoke spread, avocado, a thin slice of cheese and veggies; half a pint of cherry tomatoes (my go to on the road veggie!)
S: peach
D: fresh edamame beans, sauteed patty pan squash
S: sf creamsicle

Turkey pepperoni makes a great snack. Almonds (limited of course). Edamame.
