I'm not saying cut out peanut butter, just to not eat it so much. Yes it's full of protein but it also has tons of saturated fat.
Turkey and cheese is fine, as RL said.
Canned food isn't too good since it's full of a lot of salt.

Key word is moderation. If you have anymore questions about any processed food remember that word.

No. Use common sense and moderation when it comes to food. Think about what you're eating instead of grabbing anything that's edible.

Cut out peanut butter? No! Organic, non-processed peanut butter is one of the healthiest foods out there. I'd keep my serving size to 1-2 Tbsp because it is calorie dense but by no means does caloric density equate to it being unhealthy.

Also, you can buy a smoothie maker for not so much :D

Makes it so much easier to consume veggies & fruits.

Well, obviously, you have to exercise some common sense here... No cabbages and apples together! :P

Nothing wrong with throwing together some broccoli, lentils and squash or something, though.

A common mistake in thinking of a good diet for an athlete, people seem to think diet includes amount of intake. At your age, you should be on a high calorie diet. you should be getting around 2400-3000 calories of carbohydrates a day. Now a lot of what everyone has been saying is correct. Except someone said eat some fruit and half a sandwich...no. You should be eating a big sandwich or two small sandwiches. And switching honey nut cheerios for oatmeal isn't a must here. either or is fine. you are young, your metabolism is high, and your diet does not need to be quite as defined as an adult or young adult. So you dont need to got to the extreme and eat only oatmeal, eggs, nuts, and veggies and fruits, and worry about what meats to eat and so forth. Your diet is not bad. Fix a few things, and you are fine. Worry more about taking in you macronutrients than anything. Just once you get older and higher level soccer, make the appropriate changes in your diet.

heres some helpful links explaining.
