Default BEST "diet" food ever

So on the heels of the "worst diet food ever" thread, I thought it would be interesting to see the flip side.

What's your favorite food that you've discovered on your weight loss journey?

I recently discovered that I love, love, love jicama and mashed sweet potatoes (not together, cause that'd be gross.) Jicama is that crunchy something I crave and sweet potatoes are like dessert for me.

I love jicama! It's like a cross between a radish and a turnip - turnip sized, radish texture with that lovely crunch and none of the heat of a radish.

I really, really, really, like edemame. I get the box of them at Costco, 100 calories in a HUGE bag. Microwave frozen for 3 minutes and add a little salt and you have one insanely yummy snack.

I used to think I hated all veggies... Now, I have discovered I can eat asparagus like candy. Spinach is nummies! I eat things like bean salad and LOVE it.

I love cottage cheese! I can't believe it's only 110 cals! WTF??
Love QUINOA, make it a million ways - even an apple crumble with it!
Love Unsweetened Almond Milk (vanilla and / or Chocolate) insane!

Other than that really, I still eat all the stuff I used to eat (except mcd's of course) just about 1/2 of my old plate

Greek Yogurt!!

It stays with me so much better (more protein and more substance) than the 'diet' slop I used to eat thinking it was so good for me.

Its my go-to anytime snack.

Okay, I was wondering what PB2 was. I'd never heard of it before this. So...powered peanut butter, huh? And it's pretty good? I REALLY miss peanut butter so I'm thinking about trying this one out...

PB2 is not bad. It's not exactly like the PB you get in the store, but it's a pretty good substitute. It's pricey, but if you love PB it's worth it.

Roasted unsalted almonds. They satisfy my craving for sweet (cutting out sugar has made me realize how "sweet" other foods are!) or for salty (that proteiny feeling hits the spot!) Overall, delicious!

Think Thin bars- they have a mini bar that is sugar free, a good amount of protein, and taste delicious!

Organic Pink Lady Apples from my farmers market. You have not tasted an apple until you have had one of these.

Cottage cheese. I know it's on a lot of people's "worst" list, but I've always liked it, especially the full-fat kind. It's my go-to food when I come home and dinner's not ready yet. It's my I-just-need-a-mouthful-of-SOMETHING food. It's cool and creamy and cheesy and yummy.

Roasted in the oven veggies...all kinds. Green beans, cauliflower, butternut squash, beets, asparagus, Brussels sprouts to name a few favorites. Tossed with a little olive oil and a dash of salt...OMG I can eat pans full.

Also, I have found 101 ways to make the most delicious oatmeal. Filling, warm, creamy, wonderful!

Roasted broccoli - just tossed in a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Holy yum! I never thought I'd eat veggies as a snack, but damn I love this stuff.

hummus! Goes so great with all kinds of veggies, great on wraps, great on salad, great with crackers, it is endless. And all the varieties - my current favorite is jalapeno-cilantro. So great!

I second the hummus! I like Sabra's Roasted Pine Nut flavor. Where can I find the Jalapeno & cilantro/brand at? Sounds good. Also love Honeycrisp Apples!
