Default Filling Foods

Okay guys, when you are absolutely starving and you look at a frozen healthy choice meal and just start laughing, what do you eat to fill up on? Whats something filling that isnt so horribly calorie ridden?

Ditto on the Grape Nuts. Cheerios are good, too. With lowfat milk, of course.

The Healthy Choice meal can be made a lot more filling if you add a great salad alongside it, and maybe a little yogurt & fruit for dessert.

A cup of hot liquid with few or no cals (green tea, coffee with milk, bouillion) automatically makes any meal seem more filling, too.

I snack on....CABBAGE(with mustard)--I think I might have some now!!!
I also snack on red, yellow and orange bell peppers(with mustard too)
And if you want something a little mushy and different(quick too) I take an eggplant, cut it into rounds put them in the microwave for about four min. and then eat..(after it cools down a little bit)--and I dont put mustard on those, but I do put salt, garlic and oregenoo
Enjoy just like I do!!

A 1/2 cup of 2% cottage cheese
A small handfull of almonds does wonders
A few slices of lunchmeat rolled up
FF yogurt, sometimes with a TBSP or 2 of cereal in it.

Basically "filling" is achieved by a bunch of protein and a pinch of fat in my little world.

I really like having low-fat yogurt drizzled over fresh fruit. What you say about having a nice salad with a frozen dinner is great. The biggest change I see in Howie's and my meal habits now is, we have several things at mealtime rather than counting on the entree to fill us up. Instead of making a chicken and rice dish and splitting it between us, we have about 1/4 of the chicken and rice each, plus add a salad and veggies. It ends up being so much more satisfying than rice and chicken alone. Lots of tastes and textures seem to do the trick for me.

I love cucumbers and will peel and slice them up with a meal. Also a handful of baby carrots. They take a while to chew and usually that will help to fill up. We have a huge stockpile of canned veggies so if you're not watching your sodium since they tend to have a bit in them, open a can up and enjoy with your meal. I've been using 2-3 cans per meal now for the family of 5 because I will usually have 2-3 servings of veggies with dinner now to help fill me up.

My favorite dinner if I don't have a lot of calories left and want to be full is fish. I can have nice size peice of fish with green beans and rice for under 300 calories. Very filling. For snacks I like celery with just a little cream cheese and hot sauce.

I eat a lot of fish as well, especially tuna and salmon, as they are so tasty and really fill you up. I eat a lot of veggies, they are very filling and light on calories. My evening meal has got to be quite big and satisfying, or I'm reaching for the biscuits and cheese two hours later.

Soup is also a good trick, I often have a bowl of miso soup before dinner. And my dh makes the best Japanese style noodles in miso broth with chicken and vegetables.

My current fav meal is chicken breast chopped up really small, asparagus, and broccoli with patak's curry paste (1tbsp) and soymilk sauce (I've been using milk lately to make it bf friendly). Yummy OR! spaghetti squash with a homemade chicken & tomato sauce. Mmmm.. I'm kinda hungry now!

Oh, I LOVE spaghetti squash! It's so satisfying in flavor and texture. I keep hearing about miso soup...I'm going to have to try that.

You don't get spaghetti squash here, I used to love it when I lived in Australia, but have never seen it in England. Miso soup is a bit of an acquired taste, and you need to shop around for a brand you like, some of them are like drinking sea water!!!!!

I have to have a mid-morning snack everyday of I'm not very fun to be around! I usually have a FF yougurt and 1 cup of dry frosted mini-wheats. This fills me up until lunch time. I don't usually get to take my lunch until 2 in the afternoon.
Other fill me up's are fruit or 1 cup of baby carrots.
