Any vegan dancers/athletes out there?

I work every day from 9am-5pm and then most nights I study dance until around 9pm, making it so I'm not home until 10pm.  I'm not sure if I'm eating well enough, although I think my diet is good for the most part.  If any of you have a similar schedule, I'm wondering what you eat before your period of physical activity and when you're hungry late at night afterwards.  Because I have to get up early every morning for work and I'm trying to lose weight (just a few pounds), I try not to eat too much before bed.  It's difficult not to do because after dancing for a a few hours and having had my "dinner" at 4pm, I'm pretty hungry by 10pm.  By "dinner" I've figured out that the only thing I can eat (for now) that won't make me sick or sleepy during dance at 6pm, is a peanut butter and banana (or other yummy fruit) sandwich. I'd love your suggestions for other options you think might be good for my mini-dinner and also for my lunch.  Thanks!

7:30am:  Oatmeal with dried fruit, nuts, seeds and ground flax (lots of tea and water all day long)
11:30am:  Peanut butter and banana on a blueberry bagel
1pm:  Sometimes veggie-miso-tofu soup and a fake meat sandwich, or a veg wrap of some kind
4pm:  Peanut butter and banana ona  blueberry bagel again!
9pm: Post-ballet banana
10pm:  Sometimes toast and tomatoes and a cup of rice milk, otherwise....
