Eat anything you want. This is "new lifestyle" food, not "diet" food.
Go to a greengrocer or the produce section of your supermarket - and buy some veggies that you normally wouldn't buy. Get on the internet and hunt down some new recipe ideas for old standby ingredients. Experiment with a new cuisine. Tweak a family-favorite recipe to be more healthful.Green veggies getting too repetitive - try a new colour, this is a great time of year for squash, beets, turnips... Sick of boneless skinless chicken breasts? Get chicken thighs. Go crazy and leave the skin on - and then just eat one. Or skip the chicken and broil a couple of little lamb chops, or grill up a small piece of good steak. Adjusting portion sizes allows you to eat more calorie-dense foods once in a while. Think outside the circular plate with a portion of lean meat, a portion of veg, and a portion of potatoes - and make a big pot of soup or stew or curry. The possibilities are endless!
