New Calorie counter so my list is small.

Boiled eggs.
Garlic Salt (i know...i know)
Instant Oatmeal.
Romaine Lettuce.
Wheat Bread.
Deli meat.
Frozen berries.
Caffeinated black tea. (Zero calories, tastes better than coffee and still gives me a boost. Right now I'm loving Plantation Mint by Bigelow.)
These arent food but I cant operate without them so they are on my MUST HAVE list: Active multivitamin, L-Arginine for blood pressure and Osteo flex for joints.
