On Sunday, I try to remember to boil two or three eggs. When my Daily Report shows that I need more protein, I reach for a hard boiled egg. I slice it into several slices (on a plate) and add about a Tablespoon of salsa verde (green salsa). YUM ! and it makes you want to drink another glass of water.
I try to keep Herdez Salsa Verde on hand at all times.

I plan my meals usually the night before. I tweek where needed. Then with an unbiased look, I am able to see where my plan can be made healthier. Maybe I need more protein, or there is too much sodium. Further tweeking may be necessary.
Eat to Fuel & Fill - less calories and less cheating
I figure out what fills me up and fuels my body to get through my day and workouts. Then I am not tempted to eat junk food as I am not hungry and my body is not craving anything. Some need a high carb breakfast like oatmeal, others need high protein to be filled up & fueled ready for their day.
Experiment until you figure out what works for you - may be different for different days if your physical activity changes. You figured it out when you feel good and are not hungry or craving sugar/fats. Less processed foods work best to fuel & fill, e.g. Oatmeal works better than cold cereal.
