Last week someone posted on saving by buying produce on the last shelf day in the store. Great idea! Do the same with meat. Keep an open mind about what to prepare for supper until you see what bargains the butcher has on sale. Then buy, prepare and serve that evening! Meats sold on the last sale date are perfectly safe to eat, and sometimes 40 - 50% off the regular price.
I work night shift, so I track my breakfast (which I eat shortly after midnight) lunch (about 5 am), afternoon coffee and snack (9 am right before bed) between midnight and 3 am. So that way I know how many calories I have left for dinner. For those on a normal schedule, just track the night before!
I have noticed that I typically eat a smaller range of foods for breakfast and lunch than for supper since supper is the "family meal" at our house. 4
