For lunch, I most ALWAYS have a HUGE salad. I can't believe how much I crave them now. It fills me up all the way until dinner time.
For dinner, I am a little more flexible depending on what I make for my family, but I do only use whole grain pasta, bread, chips and tortillas now. They have gotten so good. I try to always have a salad in addition - even if it is just lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes. I would say that my go-to ingredient would be BEANS. Any kind of beans. I love them and put them on everything. They are so good for you, too.
I have felt a big difference in my body as I have become very selective about what I eat. I know that I am giving it what it needs and that is a great feeling! I love my body - every stitch of it!

"And all saints who remember to keep and do these sayings, walking in obedience to the commandments, shall receive health in their navel and marrow to their bones; and shall
find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures;
and shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint."
