- Egg whites (better for you than the whole egg) with a little salt and pepper, maybe some cheese to add flavor, on wheat toast.
- Grapefruit (it's sooo healthy for you, it can be a snack too)
- Cottage Cheese Pancakes: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/351
- All fruit smoothie. Have non frozen fruit and add ice or use frozen fruit and add a little 100% fruit juice. You can make it a *healthy* milk shake by using low fat milk instead of juice and adding a little sugar (sugar isn't unhealthy in small amounts, but fake sugar like sweet and low and equal are bad for you)
- Chicken breast with lemon pepper or other seasonings
- A spinach tortilla with chicken cooked in some bbq sauce. Add lots of lettuce and a little bit of light ranch (like a teaspoon, if even that).
- Salad- there are thousands of possible salads you can make but what I love doing is a bunch of lettuce, some spinach if you like that, salt, pepper, garlic (powder and only a small amount) and vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, or even carrots and peppers
- Taco Salad: brown some lean beef, drain any fat, add seasonings (McCormick has a taco seasoning packet for 50 cents). Make a bowl full of lettuce, tomatoes if you want, some beef, some cheese if you want, and tortilla chips if you want (less healthy version).
- Chicken in a bag- McCormick's has these awesome chicken bag seasonings where you throw chicken in the bag (they provide) with some carrots, potatoes, whatever you want, add the seasoning and bake for about an hour. One of my husbands favorites!
- Costco sells individual salmon fillets. Take one out of the fridge/freezer, season to your liking, throw on a pan, the grill, or in the oven and cook.
- a sandwich- between whole wheat bread slices, pita style, or wrapped up (spinach wraps are really delicious, or whole wheat wraps which I'm not a huge fan of).
- Make some quinoa or brown rice in a rice cooker or in a pot if you don't have one. Add some black beans, salt and pepper, and some mozzarella if it's still to bland. I like to add some sriracha (chili hot sauce) into the rice as it cooks and some garlic seasoning. It adds some kick and makes it taste really good without adding the sodium from cheese.
- celery. If you hate it alone add some organic peanut butter (no preservatives) you can even go to many stores and grind your own peanuts into peanut butter.
- peas, green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, other vegetables but not potatoes or corn.
- apples, pears, bananas, berries, grapefruit, and other fruits.
- some nuts or a homemade trail mix (raisins, peanuts, almonds, some dark chocolate chips, whatever else you want)
- a small amount of dark chocolate is actually really good for you. The higher the cocoa content the better :) But only a small amount.
Those are my favorites but check out this site: http://www.lifehack.org/articles/lifehack/over-100-quick-and-easy-healthy-foods.html
for more options. There are an unlimited amount of healthy foods out there you just have to find what you like and stick with it :)

I am not on a diet, but I do low carb because of family history of diabetes. I also am careful of fat and sugars. One thing I love is chicken salad rolls.
This really makes enough for 2 days of rolls.
Season a chicken breast you have trimmed off the extra fat with seasoning salt, and I like extra pepper. It depends on the size, generally I cook one for about 2 minutes. Let it cool on the counter until its fully cool. Then dice up 1/2 small onion, 1/4 pepper, and 1/2 celery stalk and mix with about 2 tbsp. canola mayo and 1 tsp. mustard. Then dice up the chicken and mix this all together. I like to put fresh thyme in mine, but any fresh herbs would do. Roll this up in some bibb lettuce for a nice roll. I actually like to add grated carrots right before for more crunch. It really is good. Just taste for seasoning. I like salty food so I generally add more salt and pepper. You could do this with tuna, shrimp, crab, egg, whatever type of salads you like on bread.
Another thing I like to do is make funny salads. Layer the lettuce, throw on some ground turkey seasoned with taco mix. Top with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, avacodoes, olives, chilis, etc. Whatever you like on your taco without the shell. Just make sure the hot meat and cheese hit eachother. Then top with 2 parts salsa to 1 part sour cream.
For good snacks there's always apples with peanut butter, and celery with cream cheese or peanut butter (raisins are good on this too. then they're called ants on a log). Other good meal eyes are maybe some sort of a pasta. You can let her pick out a fun shaped noodle at the store, you can buy a health tomato sauce and top it with parmesan cheese-- which she'll hopefully enjoy. You could also try to buy a different variety of fruits. She might enjoy some because of all the color. A good snack could also be a fruit salad. You can use banana slices, strawberries, blueberries, and even grapes. I hope this helps!

If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of the best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular "fad" diets out there. Go here https://bitly.im/aMYrj
The truth is that the Paleo Diet will never be considered a fad because it's just simply the way that humans evolved to eat over approximately 2 million years. And eating in a similar fashion to our ancestors has been proven time and time again to offer amazing health benefits, including prevention of most diseases of civilization such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers, and other chronic conditions that are mostly caused by poor diet and lifestyle. One of the biggest misunderstandings about the Paleo Diet is that it's a meat-eating diet, or a super low-carb diet. This is not true

For healthy meals I like to make a turkey chili or a chicken chili. This site has fantastic chili recipes, most are easy
for turkey chili
I make a big batch and freeze the leftovers in portion sizes for future lunch and dinner. For variety I serve over brown rice, potato or whole wheat pasta.
For snacks I like a pumpkin seed recipe - very healthy
