Healthy doesn't have to be "expensive"

This is just an idea of some of the meals we eat here.  These are not all from the same day, but it at least gives you an idea of what we like to eat and what we buy.  It really does not cost a whole lot to eat things like this, that just means you buy less packaged stuff and more whole foods.

For breakfast we almost always have scrambled eggs with cheese, and if we have turkey bacon in the house we'll have that too.  Then avocado if we have it as well, or sometimes oatmeal.  We usually do it up big for breakfast since that is the most important meal of the day.

The lunch the day I took that photo was SO good!  (carrots, grapes, apples, beets, cottage cheese) It was just a few days ago and I hope to do some more lunches like that.  Although I did sneak in a couple pieces of cheese and a slice of turkey deli meat.  I really do crave and need protein.

The green smoothie is something we have for breakfast or a snack.  It is simply just banana, frozen mixed fruit, coconut milk, sometimes kefir or yogurt, ground flaxseed and raw spinach.  Ronnie LOVES smoothies and asks for them almost every day.

What are some of your favorite things to eat for breakfast, lunch, and snacks?
