Mine last week and maybe this week ran like this...

Breakfast- 2 egg muffins (I make these from a recipe I got on here)
Snack- bannana
Lunch- 97% lean ground beef sauteed in soy sauce and garlic powder with a can of corn and a side of brocolli cooked in rice vinegar and soy sauce
Snack- raisins
Dinner- Chicken breast

if you like eggs, i'll give you the recipe for the egg muffins. Only 54 calories each one and a batch is 12.

Yesterdays menu

Breakfast~ 3/4c Uncle Sam Cereal, 1/2c frozen/thawed raspberries, 1/2c soy milk, & coffee
Snack~ La Tortilla Factory ww tortilla, 1/2T Natural PB, & 1/2T strawberry jam
Lunch~ 1 slice leftover homemade pizza (ww dough, olives, mushrooms, onions, garlic, zucchini, & cheese) & leftover beet/cucumber salad (beets, cucumbers, & onion tossed in oil & vinegar)

I know you aren't vegan (neither am I~I eat fish and on very rare occasion poultry, but I don't drink milk either and I'm thinking about going veggie again) but here are some great links for recipe ideas. Hopefully, they don't get deleted.

Veggielife, you can check out my "Fitday" (today wasn't as healthy as usual ) I eat only vegan food but I am sure you and I eat many of the same things I aim for a good middle between 1,200-1,800 on most days.

Tomorrow I am making a soup with red cabbage, rainbow chard, carrot, onion, garlic and either beans and lentils of some sort. This will be filling, low calorie, high fiber and have a fair amount of protein.

I eat practically the same thing every week day. I guess at work, I don't feel the need for variety.

Breakfast - 1 Pkg Low-Sugar Apple Cinnamon Oatmean
Snack - 1 Cup Jello
Lunch - 1 Lean Cuisine or Smartone depending on what's in the freezer, or a can of soup. Also a 100 cal pack, normally grasshoppers
Snack - 1 cup Jello
Dinner - 1 Lean Cuisine or Smartone or fresh Tilapia if it's on sale. Occassionally, I may make a chicken breast with some vegetables if I have the patience to let it cook
After dinner - 1 light yogurt

If I'm still hungry, I'll occasionally eat some cheese or a grapefruit or a 100 cal ice cream sandwich, but this is pretty much the norm for me.

I know this is against all traditional dieting wisdom, but the one meal I stringently plan is dinner because it's my biggest meal. Once I figure out (roughly) the calories of my dinner, I know the calories I'm allowed to have the rest of the day. Since I stock my pantry with healthy things (salads, fruits, nuts, turkey, yogurt, etc.), I can easily spontaneously choose foods that fit into my calorie needs.
