Do you mean diet as in trying-to-lose-weight-diet or diet as in what-I-eat-in-my-daily-diet?

Chicken. I love chicken. I find it was easier to switch from fried chicken to baked and rotisserie chicken without sacrificing flavor. Makes dieting a bit easier.

I love those whole-wheat, Arnold Sandwich Thins that are 100 calories each.  I often use them when making breakfast sandwiches and as part of my lunch.

Greek yoghurt – it’s my ice cream substitute.

Grilled chicken breasts. We freeze them raw in ziplocks with marinade, and then defrost them and broil them for salads, lettuce wraps, stews, scrambled eggs, stir fry, etc.

Promise not to laugh…

Wendy’s Chili.

I am not a big one for fast food ever… I am the gal that rarely even drinks pop.

BUT Wendy’s Chili is great.

Got this tip from when I belonged to Weight Watchers.

Small = 180 Calories = 4 Grams of Fibre = 13 Grams of Protein = 4 Points / 5 Points Plus

Large = 270 Calories = 7 Grams of Fibre = 19 Grams of Protein = 7 Points / 8 Points Plus

It is fabulous for whenever you are on the run… fills you up, keeps you going, is relatively healthy (tomatoes & beans are good for you)… and doesn’t cost a lot.

When I am trying to diet, it is my staple on days when I on the road and busy, and don’t have time to worry about what to eat for lunch too.

Hope this helps,

I’m doing the Whole 30 Challenge, so the foods which I’ve typically thought of “health foods” are out like quiona and greek yogurt. I’m not planning on sticking to Paleo, but I want to get my eating habits under control–dress fitting, you know?! I would say my green smoothie, which is spinach, romaine, apples, pears, celery and banana. So good!

-Lots of tuna (with Greek yogurt instead of mayo)

-Bolthouse Farms creamy yogurt-based dressings – I’m obsessed with the ranch and Caesar. They’re like 35 or 45 calories for 2 tbsp and I swear they taste like the real deal, creamy deliciousness.

-PB2 (peanut butter substitute)


-Joseph’s pitas


-Fat Free phillidelphia cream cheese


-my special salad (consists of iceberg, sautéed onions and red peppers, 1Tbsp fat free sour cream and 1Tbsp salsa




-water (I seriously love water, can’t make it longer then an hour without it)

ETA-oh and Detour protein bars! Love them!

And eggs too, they are my go-to. 

Oh, one more…and Special K vanilla almond.

I think that’s it.

Cheese (real cheese, not processed cheese-like products). If I don’t have cheese in the house I’ll eat chocolate… cheese is healthier.

I’m not a calorie-counter, but I’m not oblivious that cheese is high-cal. It’s also a dairy product which has other health concerns, so it’s not like I eat cheese with reckless abandon. However, it has a lot of protein and fat for the calories. That means it fills me up and energizes me very well for the caloric cost. I can eat the same calories in chocolate and end up feeling blah and still peckish from the sugar rush/crash a short time later.

Eggs, probably? Likely my main source of protein.
