I try new recipes all the time. So it changes constantly.
Breakfast (around 7-8 am)- Is usually some conconction of oatmeal, a chocolate protein protein powder, berry, Greek yogurt and seed/nut/fruit granola, cottage cheese and oat pancakes with fruit, various types of french toast, lately I've been experimenting with veggie crepes.
Post workout Snack (around 11-12): Again, changes all the time. It's usually high in protein. It's actually more like my second breakfast and involves breakfast type foods.
Lunch (around 2-3pm)- Usually a whole grain wrap or sandwich with fresh ingredients. Sometimes salad or homemade soup. Today I'm having a chicken salad w/celery, grapes, blueberries, raspberries, sliced almond in a Greek yogurt, lemon, ginger sauce inside a half a cantalop. Yeah, I eat like celebrity. lol I have just become obsessed with cooking since joining Spark. I didn't know how to cook to save my life 8 month ago and now I try all sorts of exotic meals daily. I am constantly looking for new recipes to try.
Late afternoon snack (around 5-6pm)- Changes all the time!
Dinner- involves either seafood, chicken, pork tenderloin/pork and lots of veg.
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

Breakfast: cereal or salad with egg, occasionally other things
Snacks: yogurt, half an almond-butter sandwich, salad, fruit -- depends on hunger mostly
Lunch: usually South Indian style food of some kind. Sambar (a savory lentil stew with vegetables) is my favorite, eaten with rice or chapatti (tortilla). There's usually a vegetable side dish, and I often add some salad, too.
Dinner: Often more South Indian food, but other favorites include quinoa with vegetables, Thai-style veggies & tofu with coconut milk, and meatless tacos with a pretty good fake cheese (my son is allergic to milk). Rice, tortilla and/or salad and/or more veggies added if I feel like it.
This is all the same stuff as I ate "before", just both less and more of it -- smaller portion sizes than previously, but also far fewer real meals "replaced" with junk food.
lean meat......lots of protein as I am a weight lifter and need the protein. one whole grain a day and one fruit as it helps with my hypoglycemia. lots of veggies. And good fats in peanuts, peanut butter.

I eat whatever sounds good when I'm feeling hungry. There are just a few rules I make myself follow. One is smaller portions eaten slowly so I will know to stop when I've had enough. Two, make sure I'm truly hungry and not just bored. I only eat to fuel my body now, not just because there's nothing else to do.
Usually... - smoothie or scrambled tofu for breakfast - apple and natural peanut butter for snack - soup and/or salad (with protein) for lunch - dinner varies - often a stew,chili or soup/sandwich combo - hard to get through a day without a square or two of lindt dark chocolate

You can look at my shared tracker to see what I eat. I'm maintaining now so that's why more calories, but when I was working on losing, I generally ate the same... just smaller portions and a few less "treat" foods (ie stuff like the Ruffles and dip and sour gummy worms that is in my tracker from yesterday ;)) Also all my dinners and most lunches are recipes that I've entered in the recipe builder, so that's why there's often only one entry for those. They usually include the veggies.

Just wondering what everyone's eating schedule is like and what types of food you consume on a daily basis.
This is what I normally eat.. Breakfast: Oatmeal or a Green Smoothie Lunch: Chicken Breast or another type of lean meat and veggies with sweet potato mash or brown rice Dinner: Chicken Breast or another type of lean meat and veggies with sweet potato mash or brown rice. If my DH is cooking, I'll usually indulge in whatever it is in moderation.
For a snack, I'll have some fruit or a Chobani greek yogurt
