Eating at home.

 Shrimp scampi. (you cant tell from the picture, but the noodles are covered with a lemony, white wine(ey?) sauce.
Chicken noodle soup w/a pastrami sandwich.
 Spinach and cheese omelet w/vegetables and tea.
 Beef stew w/romaine salad and bread.
 Teriyaki chicken, mashed potatoes and a salad.
 Zuppa toscana w/crusty bread.
 Tuna fish and avocado sandwich w/white grape juice. 

(this was so delicious that i really want to share how i made it)
1. toast up some bread with oil on it.
2. take tuna out of the can and squeeze out excess water (mine was in water) put it in a bowl. add oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and parsley (i used dry flakes) stir it all together and add more to taste if needed. 
3. cut an avocado in half and mash it up inside the skin. scoop it out onto your breads and top with tuna. add black pepper on top. Delicious and nutritious! (per Alton Brown)

*I found a nice little produce stand right next to our house, they sell mostly vegetables and fruits, plus some dairy. And i know people always say that vegetables and fruits are so expensive and its cheaper to eat fast food,(which is true) but if you compare the price of an average joe sit down restaurant, produce is much cheaper. (Especially if you eat seasonally and avoid the fruits that are not in season and therefore more expensive.)
For example, i bought enough veggies and fruits to last me a week+ and it cost me around $20. (and i buy a lot of vegetables) Buy some more substantial foods like rice, pasta and flour in bulk at Winco or Costco and your good to go for a while. By the way, Costco is also a great place to buy chicken and shrimp in bulk.
