Healthy breakfast, lunch, and snacks?

I am trying to make a list of healthy meals for breakfast and lunches that I can always keep on hand. Bc I hate cooking and I hate trying to figure out what we're going to eat that day. And snacks too.

  • Each meal should include a protein, fiber and healthy carb. Most women consume too many carbohydrates, and most people consume too many bad carbs.

    Protein will help stave off hunger. Protein can be found in eggs, yogurt, meat, nuts & nut butters, beans, milk and cheese.
    Fiber can be found in fruits and vegetables, legumes, whole grain breads cereals, pastas and brown rice. Processed foods have less fiber than non processed foods. Fiber helps you feel full longer, staves off hunger and help prevents over eating.
    Many of the foods that contain fiber are also "good" carbs. Avoid things made of white flour. These are not "good" carbs.

  • Some of our grocery basics are whole grain tortillas, whole grain bread, butter, fruits (frozen blueberries and pineapple, bananas, grapefruits, apples), vegetables (lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, avocado, sweet potatoes, onions, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini), whole grains (quinoa, brown rice, barley, oatmeal, whole wheat pastry flour), legumes (assorted dried and canned beans, chick peas, lentils, tofu); eggs, cheese

    Breakfast this morning: whole wheat tortilla, egg scrambled with salsa, cheese
    typical lunch: whole grain toast, 1/2 avocado, slice tomato, pinch of sea salt
    Dinners: lentil tacos, stir fry over brown rice, noodles with broccoli and peanut sauce
