Snack - apple, orange, Primal Pac
Dinner - bone-in pork chop w/ grilled yellow squash & zuchinni, and grilled green heirloom tomatoes
Dessert - A treat for being halfway through my W30! Grilled peaches w/ a light dusting of cinnamon. Better than peach cobbler!
Notes: I'm halfway, and I feel GREAT!

With that being said, there are things I can tweak, change, and execute MUCH better! I'd really like to tighten up my final two weeks:
The daily 3pm sugar crave! I've been eating a Primal Pac & RxBar (which, together, are 700 calories!), and an Apple. My body is craving sugar, and I think I need to starve that bitch out! I'm now going to bring a daily protein to eat at that time, have my Apple before lunch, and save the Primal Pac & RxBar in my briefcase for emergencies.
I need to stop having double-dinners. I'm hungry when I get home from work at 6pm, so I'll have a 'heavy snack', and then a 'real dinner' around 7:30 or 8pm. I need to not eat so late, and I need to eat just once in the evening. The protein at 4pm may help, and I might try to push lunch later, too.
I need to follow through on my commitment to try two new recipes a week! I need to finish this W30 with half a dozen go-to recipes.
Prep, prep, and more prep! Having 'leftover' stuff in the fridge to easily combine & heat has been a magnificent success. Need more of that!
Exercise has been lackluster. My right knee has been hurting, so I'm reluctant to do too much walking, and the Aqua Fit classes can be tough to get to on-time during the week. Recommitting to three gym visits, at least two of which are Aqua Fit.
Lunch: roast beef with mixed grilled veggies & iced tea
Snack: Primal Pac, RxBar, Apples
Post Workout: Chicken breast & HB egg
Dinner: Outback - Ahi Tuna appetizer (no sauce!), grilled Salmon, broccoli

Lunch: Sweet potato on a bed of spinach, with chicken breast, sauerkraut, & salsa w/ crushed red peppers.
Dinner: Chipotle salad bowl - lettuce, carnitas, salsa, and guacamole.
Notes: feeling good! Very positive! The gut is still learning to process the new way of eating (is that the nice way of saying it?), but the probiotic supplement & fermented veggies will help, too.

Lunch: hamburger patty, two HB eggs, cucumbers, tomatoes, peaches, grapes, honeydew, cantaloupe.
Snack: Primal Pac & mix of almonds & cashews
Dinner: grilled chicken & bell peppers with avocado, salsa, and crushed red pepper flakes.
Notes: Aqua Fit class left me wrung-out & dead. 'Might' need to eat a little something beforehand, next time. Right knee has been in pain, trying to moderate between staying active & not hurting it too much. Worried.
