Oh hunny there are tons of things. You can make yourself and the children baked chicken tenders with steamed veggies dressed in a marinade. Soup is another healthy thing and good for winter time. Various salads with fresh greens and a cooked protien on top.

What You'll Need: 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (4 to 6 oz each) 4 pineapple slices (1/2-inch thick) 1/4 cup pickled jalapeno slices, or 1 fresh jalapeno, thinly sliced Teriyaki sauce 4 slices Swiss cheese 4 whole-wheat kaiser rolls 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
How to make it: 1 Combine chicken and enough teriyaki sauce to cover it in a resealable plastic bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 12 hours.
2 Heat a grill until hot (you shouldn't be able to hold your hand above the grates for more than 5 seconds). Remove chicken from marinade and place on the grill; discard any remaining marinade. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, flip, and immediately add cheese to each breast. Continue cooking until cheese is melted and chicken is lightly charred and firm to the touch. Remove from grill; set aside.
3 While chicken rests, add pineapple and rolls to the grill. Cook rolls until they're lightly toasted, and pineapple slices until they're soft and caramelized, about 2 minutes per side. Top each roll with chicken, pineapple, red onion, and jalapeno slices. If you like, drizzle chicken with a bit more teriyaki sauce.

I eat 6 meals a day, every 2 1/2 hours. 7:30 am breakfast, 10 am snack, 12:30pm lunch, 3 pm snack, 5:30 pm dinner, 8:00 pm snack. Every meal has 2 oz. skinless chicken. Breakfast, am snack and pm snack has a fruit, also. Lunch & dinner has a grain and veggies. Raw salad veggies are unlimited and available all day. I've lost 60 lbs in the last year eating like this. I drink water all day long, and frankly, it is a chore to eat this much. I'm never hungry, and my metabolism never stops.
My husband and I just had a pretty big salad with tomato, avocado slices, cucumber, red onion, radishes, real black olives, a sprinkle of parmesan, slivered raw almonds and a home made balsamic vinaigrette.
We also had a fruit smoothie made with freshly squeezed oj and frozen berries.
