Is this typical of what you eat most days?

This has been a fairly typical week for me diet-wise, although I am quite broke as it’s the end of Jan so I am eating out less (I would normally go to Itsu or Wagamama’s at least once through the week with my colleagues) so I am doing more prepared salads myself at work.
