I'm also a fan of nuts as a snack. I don't limit myself to almonds. I also enjoy pistachios, pecans, cashews, walnuts, etc. If they are a leaner nut (almonds, pistachios) I'll have an ounce. If they are fattier, I'll have 1/2 ounce.
String cheese has been mentioned numerous times and I like that one too. I also like the occasional wedge of Laughing cow cheese. Greek yogurt with fresh fruit is yummy.
Another fave of mine is dry roasted and lightly salted pumpkin seeds.
There are a few nutrition bars that I like--but be aware that many of them are just disguised candy bars and not really nutritious at all. This is probably one of the more processed meals/snacks that I eat.
For dinner, I usually just do a lean protein (chicken, beef, fish, lamb, vegetarian, eggs, etc.) with a veggie. I've learned to enjoy the way food tastes so I don't use many seasonings, salt, condiments, gravies, etc.
I basically only drink coffee and water. I put half and half in my coffee and nothing in my water.
I try to stay hydrated by drinking half my weight in ounces of water a day. So a 150lb person would drink 75 ounces of water/day. A 200lb person would drink 100 ounces, etc.
