I'm a private tutor, I spend my day going from one student to the other and ths is why I usually have to eat out. Can I deduct this as "meals while conducting business"?

Also, I'm self employed and this is my main source of income.

No, in order to deduct your meals as a business expense, you must be away from home overnight or for a period that requires substantial rest (not just a nap)
