With salads, there are so many different kinds you can always change it up :)
You can use romaine lettuce, mixed baby greens, baby spinach, baby romaine, Italian salad mix, etc. Try different dressings like olive oil & balsamic vinegar, balsamic vinaigrette, low-fat zesty Italian, etc. Add things like cherry tomatoes, cucumber, dried cranberries, goat cheese or any cheese, almond slithers, walnut crumbles, grated carrot, roasted beets, etc. For protein things like: tuna or salmon, chickpeas or any beans, tofu cubes, tempeh, etc.
Healthy food ideas :)
* Go for natural, ideally organic foods
~ Greek yogurt or yogurt (nonfat) - Greek yogurt has more protein than regular yogurt
~ Eggs, cheese, cottage cheese (2% is fine), goat cheese, skim milk or goat milk, etc.
~ Fruit & Berries
~ Beans (chickpeas, black beans, kidney beans, mixed beans, etc.) - full of fiber and protein :)
~ Veggie burgers (Amy's makes great veggie burgers)
~ Whole grain breads: multigrain bread, ezekiel bread, rye bread, whole wheat pitas, whole grain tortillas or bagels, etc.
~ Whole grain pasta or brown rice pasta, brown/wild rice, quinoa, buckwheat, etc.
~ Sweet potatoes or potatoes
~ Oatmeal - great source of fiber, you can add toppings like: almond butter or peanut butter, nuts, fresh berries/fruit, raisins, dried fruit like cherries/cranberries/blueberries, cinnamon, skim milk or non-dairy milk, nonfat greek yogurt, jam, honey, agave nectar, maple syrup, etc.
~ Healthy cereals (Kashi, Nature's Path Organic, etc..high in fiber like raisin bran)
~ Nuts, seeds, almond butter, peanut butter
~ Non-dairy milks like soy, almond or rice milk
~ Ground flax seed to add into a smoothie, top yogurt, etc.
~ Olive oil, good healthy fat, great for stir frys with lots of veggies.
~ Salmon & Tuna
~ Tofu & Tempeh - are great in sandwiches, wraps, on salads, etc.
~ Whole grain crackers
~ Whole grain waffles or pancakes
~ Dark chocolate - in small amounts :)

I hope this helps :)
Listen its not about what you eat its how much you eat that is what people don't understand. They hear the word diet and they think that they can only eat salads. The only thing that matters at the end of the day is the total amount of calories not the number of meals. If you are negative calories you will lose weight it is that simple like a math equation. So I say this eat less of the foods you like and get activity going like walking 3-4 times a week.
Oatmeal, egg whites, wheat toast, and fruit. Best things you can jumpstart your morning with. Nice and clean eating, with perfect balance of carbs and proteins. My personal breakfast is a bowl of Quaker Steel Cut Oats, with 1 whole egg, 5 egg whites, and an apple. I sometimes cook the egg in olive oil for some added mono and polyunsaturated fats, especially if I am going to work out hard later. Been eating same thing for a year now, and I have no problems with weight management. Good luck.
