Avocados when I want to add fats

Toppings and Dressing
Sugar free bbq sauce
Bolt house makes yogurt based Ranch, Honey Mustard,

For me I had to make it simple. I have been on this for three years. It finally became a habit. No it is easy to eat this way. Some call it boring but for me it?s a life style. Not a diet.

I will add more stuff and try to give more details.
Suggestions, criticism, and questions are all welcome.
I hope this helps someone.
I am not a chef, nutritionist,Dr or anything special. Just a normal guy trying to eat better and live healthier.

I have streamlined my eating style and made it simple.
For me that has made it successful and easier to maintain. I know others that are constantly planning, finding recipes or mixing things up all the time. It seems that burns a lot of folks out and they give up.
It doesn?t always work for me every day. Example is today I ended up 800 calories short of 3000. Other days I struggle to keep it on track. I use under armor my fitness pal to help me track. I eat a lot of the same thing so I don?t track every day cause I just copy the day before.
I also try for a gallon of water every day and 2 gallons in the summer.

Look like a typo
153 grams protein over three meals
Try to get 40-50 at a time.
Not always exact

Simple is my style. Sunday I cook chicken breast for the week. Put in 2 glass 9x13 no grease or anything. Lawry?s seasoning and pepper cook 20 minutes each side 450 till 165 inside. Let cool and put 2 pieces In a sandwich ziplock.
Veggie like green beans, zucchini, squash, cauliflower, or broccoli.
Little olive oil salt pepper on parchment paper. Flat pan. 450 till done. Let cool divide into sandwich bags.
Grab paper plate and food for the day.
Dishes only on prep day.
Easy peasy! Don?t forget Tupperware in the office or car.
