For meats, I eat a lot of tilapita filets, salmon filets, and chicken breasts. Sometimes, I'll use canned tuna with some lite mayo and relish and make tuna salad to eat by itself or on a bagel thin.
I use bagel thins and tortillas A LOT! With bagel thins, you can make a breakfast sandwich with egg, a tuna salad sandwich, use it like a normal bagel and put cream cheese or PB on it...a million things. I like to use tortillas to make breakfast burritos with egg and salsa, or chicken wraps or chicken fajitas. I find the bagel thins and tortillas very versatile because I can always find something to put on/in them in my cupboard or refrigerator.
I also tend to eat Greek yogurt a lot. I eat it by itself, as sour cream on a sweet potato, or in the blender with whatever fresh fruit I have on hand. It's an easy way to use up your produce before it goes too bad!
I have vegetables with my tilapia or salmon for dinner almost every day. I have a sweet potato, asparagus, brussel sprouts, or broccoli. Sometimes I saute zucchini, squash, and mushrooms and have them as a side or use them as part of a chicken fajita.
A quick snack I always like is pistachios. I buy the big bag at Walmart and measure it out into 1/2 cup serving sizes into individual baggies right when I get home from the store. Then, whenever I want some, I just grab one of the bags and know that I'm having exactly one serving--easier to track and I don't worry about over eating!
Those are all my basic go-to meals right off the top of my head.
