Which meal plan is healthier for an adult female?

Meal Plan 1:

Breakfast: plain nonfat Greek yoghurt with granola + coffee or green tea with honey.

Mid-morning snack: toast with real butter or nut butter + handful of nuts

Lunch: vegetable soup with rice or turkey wrap with veggies and hummus

Dinner: oatmeal with fruit and nut butter or Greek yoghurt with granola and honey

Meal Plan 2:

Breakfast: plain nonfat Greek yoghurt with granola + coffee or green tea with honey.

Snack 1: mixed unsalted nuts

Snack 2: protein bar

Snack 3: fruit

Dinner: veggie & potato wrap or garden burger or grilled chicken salad

Please assume the following:

Both meal plans ensures 1400 - 1700 calories per day depending on portion sizes (which will vary based on hunger)

This is for a late-twenties thin female who walks everywhere and does ballet for 2 hours per week.

Which is healthier and why?

Update:

Forgot to include dessert! Which is dark chocolate squares or chocolate covered espresso beans for both meal plans.

Update 2:

Also important to note, while the meal plans are generally the same every day, there is variety. Fruits will be different each day; same with soups, nuts, and veggies.

    The first one sounds healthier because you're eating more by having a decent sized lunch and meeting your food group requirements. If you're trying to lose weight or get fit, or if you're just trying to eat healthy in general having that filling lunch could prevent you from getting hungrier and ending up binging on junk food to satisfy that hunger. You mentioned you were thin - if you're trying to gain weight, aim for more calories and still take the first meal plan route with extra calorie add ons like cheese, oils, etc.

    They're all unhealthy deprivation meals for mentally ill women with eating disorders. Too much empty carbs, nowhere near enough healthy and satisfying fats and proteins. Try again.
