Breakfast - either Brookfarm gluten free porridge with coconut oil, flaxseed oil, tblsp low fat yoghurt and flaked coconut mixed through OR a vegetable smoothie (not to be mistaken for a juice as I make it with a Vitamix so it blends up all the pulp and fibre that a juicer would normally discard and is very filling and thick and nutritious) - eg avocado, beetroot, lemon, ginger, celery, spinach, cucumber and apple)
Lunch - Protein shake made with one piece of friuit (generally banana, peach, pineapple or watermelon) plus the following: t tbsp yoghurt OR half avocado, maca powder, spirulina, flaxseed oil, vit C powder, protein powder, liquid chlorophyll, almond milk, ice cubes, acai berry powder and mesquite powder all mixed up - yummy!
Dinner - Anything from atlantic salmon & steamed veg to pasta (no meat), fish & veg, salad & chicken and generally a roast dinner once a fortnight
Snacks in between are almonds, goji berries and occasionally dried prunes. Oh and lots of water.

45g All bran with full cream milk and a coffee or two for breakfast
Coffee and Fruit or no morning tea on weekdays, usually coffee and some toast or cake/biscuits etc on weekends
Sandwich (multigrain bread) with ham, chutney, mayo, cheese, lettuce, tomato and cucumber OR some sort of salad with maybe tuna or a boiled egg OR corn thins with cottage cheese and vegies for lunch. Usually with fruit, something sweet and a coffee
Fruit, sometimes a smoothie, maybe bread with peanut butter and jam. On bad days I just keep eating after lunch - today it was a nectarine, chai latte, 3 slices of banana and date loaf (no sugar, no fat - but still THREE slices) and 8 squares of chocolate *sigh*
Dinner is usually curry/casserole etc with rice or polenta or couscous, or meat and 5 veg. Usually only a small portion if meat and loads of vegies.
Then after the little ones are asleep - ice-cream or chocolate
I wish there wasn't so much junk at the moment though. I can't rid myself of this post baby bump

At the moment I am trying (unsuccessfully) to lose weight.
Breakfast: sultana bran, or 1 slice toast with vegemite, or small tin baked beans
Lunch: salad sandwich or salad or 1 sushi roll
Dinner: small amount (100g) meat or fish plus veges (no potatoes)
Snacks: Piece of fruit and tub of forme yoghurt
When I am not trying to lose weight my meals are pretty much the same but I'd probably add in an extra piece of fruit, a chocolate bar and a glass of wine.
Posted 17 January 2013 - 07:14 AM
Breakfast = weetbix, skim milk & a banana and a cup of coffee (though at the moment I'm going through a nutri grain phase which I know is pretty bad and full of sugar! Can't help it!).
Morning tea usually fruit.
Lunch = sandwich or 2 pieces of toast and a small tub yoghurt.
Afternoon tea = don't usually have it as am usually travelling home from work at this time, sometimes grab an apple or something when I get home if I can't wait until dinner.
Dinner = whatever we are having that night, but I eat early at 5pm with my kids.
When I'm in weight loss mode its similar but I am more mindful of portion size, and also tracking points (weight watchers).

brekky, 2 or 3 cups of coffee & a biscuit (I hate breakfast)
Lunch, Ham or chicken & salad baguette
Late afternoon snack, smoked salmon & cream cheese on crackers (usually with a glass of wine)

Breakfast : bowl of ceral with low fat milk perhaps with some blueberries or a banana (on the weekend it is usually eggs of some sort)
snack: almonds or macadamias, fruit, yoghurt, body wise bar, carrot or carrot sticks
lunch: normally leftovers from the freezer, or I may buy my lunch which would be a wrap usually chicken, avo and cheese toasted, or carrot, egg, beetroot and avo not toasted. (Weekends is normally chicken and rolls, or meat cooked by DH or if I am being naughty take away or bakers delight)
snack: something different to what I had that morning but along the same lines (normally if I am having something bad I will have it now ie some chocolate or something)
dinner: normally protein (so meat or eggs) and veg with small amount of carbs. ie: kangeroo fillet with stir fry veg using slim noodles not udon ones. or spag bog over slim noodles and veg or just over veg. Or casserol type thing served with small amount of rice (as in a table spoon) and more veg. We prob have two easy meals in there, which are either more carb based or left over or takeaway/out for dinner type meals.
