One suggestion is eat your fruit don't drink them. You are missing out on all sorts of beneficial parts of the orange by drinking the juice and not eating the entire fruit.

Sometimes I'll have 2 hard boiled eggs for breakfast too, or one on my salad at lunch, I need the protein to keep my sugar stable. And easy to grab on a busy morning, getting myself and the kids out the door, can eat em in the car if they're pre-peeled. I get string cheese sticks for the kids, one of those is a good protein boost. Nuts are easy, I buy the bulk ones in the baking aisle, they're usually cheaper, and portion them out in snack bags. Nuts and fruit is a good breakfast or snack. Those tuna pouches are awesome as well. I don't worry about the carbs/sugar in fruit b/c I figure all that natural fiber balances it out. I don't drink much fruit juice, it has good vitamins and all, but the same sugar impact as a can of soda ! Cottage cheese I have to be careful with, sometimes in a weak moment I grab the whole tub and a spoon lol.

I'm less about the calories and more about the number of servings to keep me in balance. I have 3 pieces/servings of fruit everyday, usually a banana and apple and something else in season. I try and have at least 5 servings of veggies and as many as 10 in any given day provided at least 2 servings are green, dark and leafy. The trick with veggies is to know exactly how much is in a serving. I also try and have at least 3 servings of low-fat protein each day and try to make one of them low-fat dairy. I'm low-carbing it for the moment because I'm trying to lose weight, but I usually stick to 2 servings of carbs that are low-fat, low-cal and whole grain.
