Alternative type of menu, just if you want to switch it up:

Morning: Fresh-ground coffee with maple syrup and 1 oz whole milk
Option 1: 2-3 strips of bacon, 2 eggs (hard boiled, spinach/garlic omelette, or lightly fried in butter)
Option 2: half cup of oats with scoop of protein powder, flax oil, maple syrup

Brunchtime snack:
Option 1: Handful of wasabi peas, almonds, pecans, peanuts
Option 2: Banana or carrot or some kind of citrus

Lunch:
Option 1: "Big-Ass Salad" (spinach/arugula base, almonds, orange chunks, tuna/salmon, olive oil, balsamic vinegar)
Option 2: Grilled chicken sandwich on wheat, with sun-dried tomatoes, guacamole, arugula and olive oil

Afternoon snack: Another cup of coffee
Option 1: Whole avocado, cut in half with dash of salt and pepper and squeeze of lemon/lime
Option 2: Buffalo or turkey jerky, handful of nuts

Dinner:
Option 1: Grilled chicken breast with guacamole, tomato soup
Option 2: Some vegetable entree or cooked quinoa with vegetables and spices


This is just a sampling, as I usually eat only when I'm hungry and divide up my portions to keep from pigging out. I average around 45-55% fat, 20-30% carb, 20-30% protein on my fitday.com pie chart, and that's been working out great for me. Hopefully it does for you too.
