Eggs (cooked in either butter or beef tallow), kraut or leftover veg, sometimes a potato or legume flour pancake.

Soup for lunch, started from bone broth, a little meat, more veggies.

Dinner is highly variable. We eat a wide variety of animal protein sources, two vegetables minimum, and something starchy as well. We eat wild caught ocean fish, turkey, duck, and chicken, pronghorn, elk, bison, lamb, goat, lots of greens, root veg of every description, eggs, butter, beef fat, olive oil.

It doesn't sound much like a dieter's diet but I've lost over 20 lbs and 2 dress sizes since eliminating processed foods, sweeteners, and most dairy last fall.

Well,  I'm not having a lot of success at weight loss because I rarely stick to a deficit,  but here's what I eat:

Breakfast:  Eggs w/ veggies or oatmeal w/ fruit

Lunch:  Today I'm going to have a bean salad.

Dinner:  Usually pasta, low or no oil with added greens, mushrooms, onions, etc  or will do chicken breast w/ a veggie and starch.

Snacks,  fruit or smoothies usually.

1 cup of coffee while getting ready for work

2 cups of green tea at work

3-5 strawberries

1/4 cup trail mix

spinach and berry smoothie

1/4 cup dried edamame

dinner varies nightly, usually a vegetable and lean chicken/pork/fish (i'm allergic to red meat)

B-fast: toast w/ Smart Balance; tea w/ honey & lemon

Then about two times I have about half a cup of fruit salad (1 each of whatever fresh fruit looked good in the produce dept last time I went shopping; I keep it in a large container in the frige and serve myself in a 1c container) with a small handful of raw, unsalted mixed nuts, and a drizzle of honey

Then some kind of veggie; wilted spinach salad (w/ grape tomatoes, garlic, and cashews; w/ orange and cashew dressing [homemade, literally, peeled two oranges and picked about 1/4 c of cashews out of my mixed nuts, put it all in the blender and waited for it to all look the same, it's pretty thick but I put it in a honey bottle so I can squirt it on my salad or whatever]).

Then another serving of fruit salad (as before)

Then a handful of the nuts.

Then dinner (just whatever the family is eating.  We try to eat relatively healthy, but it's not vegetarian, like the rest of my day), so usually I need to have a little more fruit salad, but I usually just have the fruit (no honey or nuts)

In the evenings, I usually have a slice of toast w/ Smart Balance or some nuts (not sure exactly how much); both if dinner is early enough, but then I've usually missed one of my mini-meals or snacks earlier in the day b/c of it.

I also have 1 (sometimes 2) squares of Ghirardelli 72% dark chocolate.
