Default 10 favorite foods that keep you on track

I like to read what people are eating that help them stay on track with their eating plan. It give me some good ideas for something new. So here are mine:

1. vanilla soy milk - I use it in a smoothie with ff yogurt and blueberries -- my nutritionist says to eat more soy!
2. Smoky Black Bean Dip (from Trader Joe's)
3. Smart Ones ice cream bars
4. eggplant hummus
5. Low Fat Chicken Chow Mein (TJ's) - a quick & easy dinner
6. walnuts - my nutritionist says I have to eat them every day
7. Morningstar vegetarian chili
8. Kavli crackers/Savory crackers (TJs)
9. fresh fruit - berry season is here, and I love it
10. Roasted Veggie Enchiladas (TJs)

Anyone else have stuff that they absolutely have to keep in their refrigerator to help them stay with it?

You guys are making me hungry!!!!

1. Cottage Cheese... it's a dessert, it's lunch! It's a dinner!
2. Lean Cusine Mac & Cheese. I swear I don't buy them, my boyfriend does... I just eat them.
3. Fresh Blueberries and Cherries. They're like 40 calories for a cup!
4. Prepackaged Egg Whites or EggBeaters. Especially the new kind with peppers and herbs. YUM! Also makes cookign frittatas a snap!
5. Torani Sugar-Free Vanilla Syrup. Made with Splenda. OMG, this is divine! I add it to Seltzer Water for a "italian soda" treat.
6. Frozen Bulk Chicken Breast. I can throw it on the grill or make something special. It's all good.
7. Genisoy Chips. They're crunchy like a chip, come in yummy flavors, are packed full of soy protein and have 25 CHIPS PER SERVING!
8. Mushrooms. I don't know why I like these so much but I add them to everything for flavor and meatiness.
9. My spice cabinet. Because "good for you" shouldn't negate "tastes good!"
10. Salsa. I could eat this stuff with a spoon!

Well, being on the Atkins woe, I can't live with out my suppliments. I have 2 different prot. shakes and the atkins bars. They are GREAT.

I also can't live with out having chicken, spam, bacon, cheese, and pepperoni. All I can eat and are easy to fix.

[list=1][*] Lowfat cottage cheese (protein fix for breakfast/snacks)[*] Little pretzel twists (when I want something to crunch)[*] Hard cooked eggs (another quick fix for breakfast/snacks)[*] Beef jerky (preferably home-made to control the salt) -- high protein low fat[*] Fruit, fruit, and more fruit[*] Veggies, veggies and more veggies[*] Pre-frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts[*] Steamed shellfish -- a lowfat treat when eating out, especially during crab season[*] Soup -- love it. I keep cans in the pantry for quick dinners, and I often choose it from the cafeteria for lunch.[*] Tea. So many flavors/kinds to choose from. It's a nice, soothing treat.[/list=1]

Here are the things that help me the most-

Pria Bars- Just 110 calories and sweet enough to make me feel like I've splurged.

1 Quart Water Bottles- They make it easy to keep track of my water every day and make sure I get it all in.

Healthy Choice and Lean Cuisine Meals- I have one every night for dinner and I can stay OP and not have to make myself a seperate meal every night.

String Cheese- A fast and easy protein snack and only 80 calories.

Balance Bars- I have one for breakfast every morning. I love them and they're a great and balanced breakfast for only 210 calories.

Tyson Pre-Cooked Honey Mustard Chicken Breasts- Just 130 calories and you pop them in the microwave for 2 1/2 minutes and they're done. Perfect!

Does anyone ever watch Alton Jones on TVFN? His book gave a great idea for popcorn. Put 3 tablespoons popcorn kernels in a brown lunch bag. Fold the top closed and staple shut - exactly 2 staples at least 3" apart. This prevents sparking in the microwave. My sweetie, Mark, makes this for me every night. Sometimes adds some brown sugar to the bag before popping - yum!

Do you mena Alton Brown on Good Eats? If so I love his show. If not what show is he on?

My dad was a chef and he cooded turkeys in a paper bag. It turned out pretty good. You have to have a plain paper sack no writing. Oil the sack down with vegetable oil and then put your turkey in and seal it up. Let it cook the normal time. Made it real golden brown. My new favorite way to cook it is from Alton Browns show and the is to use a brine. You can get directions for it on Foodtv.com.
