Food help!

Hey everyone! My daughter just turned 8 months. (She was born at the end of September) I went to her doctor's appointment yesterday and they said to start weaning her off of bottles and that she should only be having like 18 oz. a day and to give her more solid food. I had no clue I was already supposed to do this. (She's been having like 30 oz. a day probably, maybe 25.) She doesn't like the purees and we have been giving her solids which she LOVES. We mostly just whatever we are eating, but I don't usually eat all 3 meals so I am looking for things that I can give her for them. I'm wondering now what sort of food schedule and what sort of things that I should give her to make up for the bottles.

TLDR: So, what I am asking is, what is your child's food schedule, and what are they eating for meals? (It'd be even more of a plus if it's easy to make!)

Edit: Also, do you give your kids juice? I haven't really given her it but I've heard mixed things. If you do, what type?

We have been really lackadaisical about solids and so my (almost) 9 month old son is still primarily breastfed and has a few bites of whatever we're eating at breakfast and dinner and occasionally lunch. If what we're having is just something he can't eat, we'll do steamed vegetables, goat milk yogurt, or offer a ripe pear for him to nom on while we eat. Mostly though the 'mmm food!' instinct hasn't kicked in for him yet. When it does, we'll give him more.
