Breakfast, Snacks and Lunch, Dinner for me

I work graveyard shift and it took a little while to adjust to my schedule. (almost 2 years working graveyard) After some research I was able to establish my "eating schedule": I know that I should eat 5 to 6 small meals every 2 to 3 hours during the day. I also got into the habit of preparing my meals in advance. I start working at midnight so within an hour I'll have a protein shake: 4 oz. of water (or soymilk) mixed with BSN Whipped Vanilla or Fresh Cinnamon Roll or Chocolate Coconut candy bar protein powder. 2 to 3 hours later I will have breakfast, today is Avocado and Tomato white Egg Omelette w/ a Trader's Joe Sweet Onions and Pepper Chicken sausage. After that ( 2 hours later) I will have a protein bar. My two fav at the moment are the Cliff's 20 g protein Builder's and Muscle Milk

Around 6 or 6:30am I will have "lunch", today it is my Tofu Peanut Butter Stew w/ Brown Rice or Quinoa. I am usually in bed by 4pm so I will eat dinner by 12 noon, which will be a turkey sandwich made w/ Trader's Joe Whole Grain English Muffin, a slice of Swiss Cheese and 2 slices of reduced sodium turkey and on the side a few baby carrots.
I also workout, I changed my workout schedule to Mon-Fri. Most days after work (9-10am) I will workout after the workout I will have another protein shake.
