I have not tried beef Jerky but I love it. I am going to have to pick some up.

Beef Jerky is a total "go to" for me, also! I did notice one day that beef jerky really has the same nutritional stats as turkey jerky, so I just stick to the beef jerky. I like the texture better :) Just make sure to chew it well!

If you want tender chicken or turkey stick an onion and an orange inside of it. For a whole chicken use half or a quarter of the onion. Try it I swear it is awesome.

I'm very sensitive to salt. Too much will make me hang on to several pounds of fluids for days, so frustrating. So I haven't tried any kind of Jerky. I may buy a dehydrator and try making my own. But a few times a week I boil several eggs and keep in the fridge, unpeeled. If I have to run out, I take two with me in a glass container. I also keep almonds in my car. Two boiled eggs, almonds and a bottle of Water have saved the day many times over.

egg salad

ground beef with shredded cheese, on top of 2-3 baked nacho chips

broiled shrimp with Old Bay seasoning

among others...

I buy John Soules Angus Beef Strips in the freezer section at Walmart. They are precooked and ready to go.

Peel an onion and slice it and a pepper into a frying pan with a little bit of olive oil in the pan. Let saute until just before done. Add slices of Angus Beef Strips and top with slice or two of 2% Provolone cheese until the cheese melts. This is my go to fast meal....and it satisfies that longing for a Philly cheesesteak sandwich. I just eat mine on a plate - no bread, doesn't need it.

My grocery store carries sealed packages of smoked salmon strips - a whole package is 4 ounces, so I divide in half as my special treat food--SO good!

Certainly individual yogurt is on my list, lately loving Dannon Greek Raspberry chocolate and Caramel mocha flavors, or plain over a bowl of pre-cut up fruit which I almost always have at the ready.

A couple slices of thin sliced deli smoked turkey and a couple small slices of Mozerella cheese. That is my main goto snack. I bought a food scale and that equals to about 2.5 oz a snack. I try to avoid the Protein bars due to all the carbs. I go for the natural Protein, mostly meat and Beans. I am at a plateu right now and not much exercise due to knee surgery 2 weeks ago so I am defiantely trying to eat right, but dang it is hard! Especially this time of year.

Speaking of Protein Bars, I love Quest bars. High in Protein, low carbs. Clean food. At first I was terrified of them but I have to tell you I LOVE them. I have not had a chance to try them all but, banana nut, apple pie, coconut cashew, strawberry cheesecake are all very good. They give you a big protein bump although I can only munch on about 1/3 of a bar.

grilled chicken nuggets from chic fil a, ham with pepper jack cheese rolled up in it. Bowls with blacked Beans, and chopped seasoned chicken, onion and green peppers, one egg, chill cheese omelet (one of my faves!), turkey chili with cheese, and vegetable beef Soup.

I am also one that eats real foods, full fat and feel that it's not only better for you but also more satisfying.

For a snack or sometimes for Breakfast I will have about 4 or 5 good quality pepperoni slices (from the fancy deli area in the grocery store -- the good stuff, Italian) with a mini babybel cheese. Very tasty and filling.

I also shop the fancy cheeses area each week looking for new options to try.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
