Hello doctor if I wanna be in a good healthy diet what can I try to eat on my most of breakfast lunch and dinner?

More veggies!: Aim for at least half of your plate to be plant-based (mostly vegetables, some legumes, a little fruit). And keep your plate size less than 9 inches. Avoid fried foods. Drink plenty water. No sodas or sugary drinks. No artificial flavors or colors. Read labels if you eat or drink packaged foods. If you cannot easily recognize or pronounce the ingredient, you should keep it out of your diet.

Is a virtual colonoscopy a good choice for a 35 yo healthy female who has a family history of colon cancer?

Recent studies suggest that just because 1st drug from a family doesn't work doesn't mean that you need to switch drug families. Also, we can't say a drug didn't work unless you couldn't tolerate the highest dose. Lexapro (escitalopram) is a member of ssri family of which there are many. Talk to your doc about all your options (sometimes dictated by insurance).
