What do I eat?

I had a friend ask me if I could post some of the foods that I eat. I thought I would start out by telling you how I break my calories up throughout the day.

Breakfast - 300 calories

Lunch - 300 calories

Snack - 200 calories

Dinner - 400 - 600 calories depending on the meal I'm making or the treat I want to have a little later.

Most of the time, for breakfast, I will have 2 scrambled farm fresh eggs, cooked without oil or butter, 1 piece of organic whole wheat toast with 1 tbsp of organic strawberry jelly on it. This is right at 300 calories and very satisfying. If I don't have the toast I will have 2 pieces of nitrate free bacon. One of my favorite breakfasts is a multi-grain toaster waffle from Trader Joes with 1/2 cup of organic vanilla bean yogurt, 1 tbsp slivered almonds and 1 cup sliced organic strawberries. Sometimes I will have a bowl of fiber rich cereal free of refined sugars and two pieces of nitrate free bacon. Jason will make me a fruit smoothy or protein shake for breakfast sometimes.  All of these things are filling and right at 300 calories. Just recently I read about a breakfast I’m going to try next week. It’s a whole wheat English muffin with peanut butter and bananas on it. What are some of the healthy things you eat for breakfast?
