You eat a lot of junk food.
Anyway, you seriously need to get more protein in your diet. Tofu, peanut butter, cottage cheese, eggs, etc. Protein helps you grow (if you're not done growing yet) and it helps you think. Your brain will stop functioning if you don't get enough protein.
To help you out, here's a basic rule of how much protein you should be getting per day: take your weight (in pounds), divide it in half, and that's how much protein you should be getting in grams every day. For example, I'm 130 lbs, so I should get 65g of protein a day.

I dunno Slime Rite sounds healthy but make sure you get Carbs especially in the morning.
Sub sandwitch is healthy (pickles are the only unhealthy thing because of salt but not bad at all)
and the salads and ratini are probably healthy as well but may be high in sodium. just check the label or ask the deli/resteruant what the nutrition value is.
You are eating nothing but refined sugars, fats and processed foods. You are not eating a balanced diet, and you will get sick keeping it up. You need to start eating whole foods and get some complete proteins in there. Cut out the refined sugars. And eat breakfast even if it is a peice of fruit and some toast, you need breakfast.

You're homo sapiens?
Then go with more whole fruit, more leafy greens, LESS grains, cereals, breads and sugary crap
Add lean red meat.

You mean diet as in "vegan diet" or diet, as in what to eat each day?
Because a balanced vegan or vegetarian diet will more than fulfill your dietary needs.
This is a good site if you havn't checked it out already:
In my experience, it is generally better to stick with peer-reviewed books and articles by real dietition and nutrition scientists, and avoid websites put up by individual people. Or better yet, take a nutrition class or find a veg-friendly dietitian to talk to.
