Rethinking My Daily Food Intake



I've been thinking that I need to redo what I'm eating a little bit.  While most of what I'm eating is the same, I'm adding a few things, starting with the protein powder.  A recent conversation with someone made me realize that I may not be getting enough protein each day.  The other thing I have added is the cottage cheese (for the same reason as I added the powder), but as a result I have taken away the 2 apples I've been eating at that time...but I may add some kiwi fruit at the same time as the powder and almond milk.  I'm keeping the bell peppers because I love them and they're a great "filler" food as they have very little calories.  I'm also keeping the Greek yogurt and frozen fruit.  I'm adding a 3rd option to my dinner meal rotation...the breaded chicken patty (w/ mustard and some lettuce) on a multigrain sandwich thin.  As you can see, my calories are still pretty good.  I could probably stand to add about another 200-300 calories a day.  I'm not sure what I'd add to get that or where I would put it in my daily food schedule.  I'll have to do some thinking.  If anyone has any ideas, post them in the comments below.  Thanks!
